Photos from the 2018 Pink Diamond Gala

The Maurer Foundation Pink Diamond Gala, Which Took Place Wednesday, October 3, 2018, Was A Huge Success, Raising Almost $200,000!

Thank you to all who supported The Maurer Foundation’s Pink Diamond Gala honoring John F. Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop Hospital! We had an amazing time at the October 3rd event at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, raising almost $200,000 for breast health education. Three hundred attendees enjoyed great live music, dancing, and raffles.

Proceeds from the event go to support the foundation’s breast health education programs, which are presented at schools, colleges, businesses and community groups. The life-saving presentations educate students, women and men about breast cancer prevention, early detection, risk factors, myths, and proper breast self-exam procedures.
