Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center’s Annual Ball, “An Evening at the Copacabana” was held on September 27 at Crest Hollow Country Club. More than 400 guests joined the 2013 Gala Honorees, West Islip residents Lorraine and John Pace, well known throughout the region for their commitment in the fight against breast cancer.
The ball raised more than $425,000 to support The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation, with proceeds to benefit the Cancer Center at Good Samaritan Hospital.
“Starting with the inception of the hospital’s Breast Health Center 20 years ago John and I have valued our relationship with Good Samaritan Hospital,” said Mrs. Pace. “We look forward to partnering with the hospital to provide outreach, education and programs for cancer survivors on Long Island through the recent alignment of The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation and our foundation Breast Cancer Help.”
