On Saturday April 1, 2017, The Gift of Life, Inc. celebrated its 42nd anniversary with a packed house in the ballroom of the Garden City Hotel in Garden City, New York. Over 140 people attended the evening to recognize International Humanitarian Honoree Cardiac Surgeon Dr. William Novick and Angel Award Honoree Patricia Shea, Founder and Executive Director of MOMMAS House, a home for young mothers aged 18-24 and their babies.
The Gift of Life, Inc. Humanitarian Award presented to Dr. William Novick, MD MS reads:
"Whereas individuals who give of their time, energies and service in the best
interests of their communities and the world around them are an
asset beyond remuneration and cannot be sufficiently extolled.
Children live today because of your love, compassion and dedication.
You will forever be remembered in the thankful prayers
Of their grateful families. May God continue to Bless you!”
The Gift of Life, Inc. expresses its gratitude to everyone who supported the benefit. Thanks to your generosity more underprivileged children will receive the gift of life.
