A major fundraiser over the weekend raised more than half a million dollars in support of Vassar Brothers Medical Center at the annual Diamond Gala.
The glitzy event organized by the Foundation for Vassar Brothers Medical Center was held on the grounds of the FDR Presidential Library and Museum and Hyde Park. More than 670 attendees joined in honoring Obstetrician- Gynecologist Dr. Jed Turk and Internal Medicine Physician Dr Imtiaz Mallick.
“Dr. Turk and Dr. Mallick are dedicated to the practice of quality healthcare at Vassar Brothers Medical Center,” said Sarah Johnstone Levine, chair of the Foundation for Vassar Brothers Medical Center. “The 2017 Diamond Gala is our opportunity to celebrate these two exceptional members of our medical community for their contributions to the medical center’s impressive progress.”
