The Mount Sinai Children's Center Foundation (CCF) held its 32nd annual Benefit, a return to the Big Apple Circus, on Sunday, November 10, 2019. The Benefit was a fun-filled family day with a private performance of the Circus, activities and gifts for the kids, and complimentary refreshments. Doors opened at 3 pm and the private performance began at 4 pm at Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center.
Proceeds from this year’s benefit allow the CCF to continue supporting the Child Life program and seed funding for our most innovative junior physician-scientists, as well as one of our most important initiatives to date, The Program for Underserved Children. Since the program’s launch in 2017, hundreds of new families are receiving social work services, and we have expanded our asthma services to communities that had limited access to expert asthma care previously. With the transformation of our General Pediatrics clinic, our patients will now receive their care in a welcoming environment that promotes health, wellness, and development.
