Mineola, NY June, 2010: The Maurer Foundation for Breast Health Education held its “Pink Diamond Dinner” on June 3rd at The Fox Hollow in Woodbury, NY with over 250 guests in attendance. The benefit raised $135,000 to support breast health education.
The evening included a cocktail reception, seated dinner and silent auction featuring jewelry by Judith Ripka. The Foundation proudly recognized three prominent honorees that have spent both their personal and professional careers making a difference in people’s lives: Deena R. Ehrlich, PhD Executive Director of the Nassau County Bar Association, Virginia E. Maurer, MD Diseases and Surgery of the Breast and Founder, The Maurer Foundation and Thomas J. Murray, CPA Managing Partner Albrecht, Viggiano, Zureck & Company, P.C.
“It’s so important that all of us embrace the idea of giving back,” said Chairman of The Maurer Foundation, Andrew Corrado. “The Pink Diamond Dinner, with our honorees, has brought our supporters together in order to make a huge difference in the lives of those who are touched by our breast health education programs. With changes in health care approaching, the need to bring these programs to our communities is essential. The more we educate, the more lives we save. Our donors’ financial support makes this mission possible.”
