TEANECK, N.J. — The Holy Name Medical Center Foundation is hosting its black-tie ball to highlight patient care, honor one regional leader’s contributions to the field and raise funds for the Foundation.
This year, the Foundation is honoring Daniel Straus, chairman and CEO of CareOne, headquartered in Fort Lee, with its Spirit of Healing Award. The 2016 Annual Founders Ball is on Saturday, Dec. 3 at New York City’s The Pierre Hotel.
“It’s particularly meaningful to be honored at this year’s Founders Ball, as CareOne and Holy Name Medical Center are longtime partners in providing quality patient-centric care,” said Daniel Straus.
“Working together enables both institutions to enhance our services and improve patient outcomes. I look forward to continuing this important partnership.”
“Holy Name and CareOne have a common mission — to provide the community with the highest quality healthcare,” said Michael Maron, Holy Name Medical Center president and CEO.
“This year, we celebrate the dedicated leadership of Daniel E. Straus of Englewood a visionary entrepreneur, philanthropist and supporter of the Medical Center.”
Emmy Award-winning anchor of Thirteen/WNET and NJTV Dr. Steve Adubato will emcee the event, and Angelica Berrie, Ilan Kaufthal and Elizabeth Straus are the event chairs. Berrie, president of the Russell Berrie Foundation, received the Spirit of Healing Award last year.
Ilan Kaufthal is chairman of East Wind Advisors, and Elizabeth Straus, Daniel Straus’ daughter, is executive vice president of CareOne.
“In celebration of 30 years of philanthropy, the HNMC Foundation is inviting individuals and corporations to attend its Founders Ball,” organizers note. “This black-tie affair promises an exquisite evening of cocktails, fine dining and live entertainment.”
Single tickets for physicians are $600, and $700 for non-physicians. You can also reserve tables of 10. You can buy tickets here. A variety of sponsorship and journal advertisement opportunities are also available, at the same link.
The sponsorships vary widely, from being a dessert sponsor — which, for $1,000, includes one ticket and having your name or company listed — up through a presenting sponsor — which, for $50,000, includes three tables of 10 and a prominent, full-page color ad.
The ball will commence at 7 p.m. The Pierre is located at 2 East 61st St.
