Maimonides Medical Center kicked off the season of holiday cheer and Christmas ho, ho, ho with a celebration of light on Nov. 19 in the hospital auditorium.
“The annual event is an opportunity for Maimonides to provide financial support to Catholic parishes in Southern Brooklyn to defray the cost of Christmas lighting,” said Pamela Brier, president and chief executive officer at the healing center.
Fellow attendees that helped light the way to the seasonal festivities included “Mr. Maimonides” Douglas Jablon, Dominick Stanzione, our very own state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Bay Ridge), Larry Morrish, community activist Eileen LaRuffa, Anne Blumetti-Stravaci, Msgr. John Maloney, Msgr. Jamie, Rev. Khader El-Yateem, and Arlene Figaro.
Standing O says, “Thanks for keeping the lights on.”
