The time-honored tradition supports the Hospital’s Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department, which was named after the Paulsons in recognition of their generous support. The hospital serves more than 25,000 residents and visitors annually on Long Island’s South Fork. Tiffany & Co. will serve as the Honorary Jewelry Chair, Barclay’s Wealth will serve as the Honorary Corporate Chair, Cushman and Wakefield will serve as the Honorary Commercial Real Estate Chair and Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate will serve as the Honorary Residential Real Estate Chair.
