Realtors John Reinhardt, Ann McBride, and their colleagues presented the chairman of surgery at the medical center, Dr. Patrick Borgen, with a check for $40,000 at the firm’s Avenue U office on Dec. 17.
Staff at Maimonides Medical Center raised a whopping $500,000 during its annual “Pink Week” in November.
The hospital kicked off its Pink Week with a stirring ceremony that featured remarks from clinical leadership, supporters, and breast cancer survivors, such as Glasset Lawson, who told her empowering story of how she overcame her diagnosis of the disease in June.
The hospital held a total of six events dedicated to the breast-cancer awareness cause.
Staffers from all departments of the hospital competed in an annual contest to see who could “Go Pink” to the most visible degree, with patients and visitors across the institution’s numerous sites enjoying the colorful displays and costumes of the workers.
