For more than 25 years, Camp Loyaltown has provided a unique camp experience designed to meet the individual needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities. More than 200 friends of the camp stepped up to help ensure its continued success by raising more than $120,000 at the 17th Annual Camp Loyaltown Auction, held at the Inn at New Hyde Park last month. The evening’s festivities included cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner, dancing and a live auction.
The auction, organized by AHRC of Brookville, honored Bernard Rosof, M.D., M.A.C.P., a national leader in the areas of health care quality and performance improvement. Dr. Rosof is the chair of Huntington Hospital’s board of directors, a member of the North Shore-LIJ Health System’s board of trustees executive committee, and sits on the board of the Pearl and Jack Ain Advantage Care Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Brookville. Nationally, he is chair of the physician advisory committee for United Health Group, and chair of the American Medical Association’s Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement, which continues to lead efforts in developing, testing and implementing evidence-based performance measures for use at the point of care.
Among the hundreds of items auctioned off at the event were fabulous vacation packages in the Hamptons, a “Destination Anywhere” seven-day cruise, opera tickets, jewelry and sports memorabilia. For the past 17 years, the auction has raised money to fund capital projects such as a state-of-the-art infirmary; a solar-heated, handicapped-accessible swimming pool; and newly paved roads to allow wheelchair accessibility throughout the camp.
