Last month, more than 400 attendees from the Long Island medical and corporate community came out to the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City to attend the American Heart Association’s 51st Annual Long Island Heart Ball. The Long Island Heart Ball is an annual social event held to recognize outstanding accomplishments of individuals and companies in the area of cardiovascular science and leadership.
This year’s event was chaired by Christopher Doveala, financial services vice president for Leviton Mfg. Co. The 51st Annual Heart Ball honored George A. Petrossian, director of interventional cardiovascular procedures at St. Francis Hospital, South Nassau Communities Hospital. Petrossian received the 2014 Cardiovascular Science Award. Attendees will also hear from former New York Islander and heart attack survivor Jean Potvin and reality star and stroke survivor, Ashlee White.
The evening was a spectacular success and included dinner, silent auction and dancing to the tunes of That 70’s Band. This year’s Heart Ball Sponsors include; Cardiovascular Medical Associates, Americana Manhasset/Castagna Realty, St. Francis Hospital, The Heart Center, Leviton Manufacturing Company, Astoria Federal Savings, Cushman & Wakefield, George A. Petrossian, MD, FACC and Winthrop-University Hospital. The Heart Ball media sponsors include; Long Island Pulse Magazine, WBAB-FM 102.3 and WBLI-FM 106.1.
The American Heart Association promises that it will have an extraordinary impact on your life by empowering you and your loved ones to save lives, live healthier and enjoy more peace of mind about cardiovascular disease. Our goal by 2020 is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent, while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20 percent.

Did you know that each of our neighbor hood parks runs a playground program every summer? Children entering 1st through 8th grades who are residents of the Village are invited to come to the park during the summer to find out what activities are taking place.
Each park has its own “flavor” and “favorite” activities. The park directors and their staff run games, sports, tournaments, and arts and crafts activities during the day and into the evening. Trips are also run through the parks.
