For those who attended the 26th Annual Babies Heart Fund Gala back in February, Valentine hearts were not the only ones on the agenda. The magnificent fundraiser was held under the chandeliers and exalted archways of Cipriani 42nd St on February 14th this year

Part of a series of very special events, the gala directly benefits the Division of Pediatric Cardiology’s prestigious fellowship training program at Columbia University’s Medical centre, and Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital – helping foster the next generation of young pediatric cardiology specialists.

The event was held in honor of Robert Roskind, one of the original founders of the fund; so chosen for his long-term dedication and tremendous generosity. Robert was joined by Dina and Diane Roskind, and by his son Scott Roskind. James Malm M.D., the surgeon who performed Scott’s two successful childhood operations, was also present.

Also among the Corinthian columns were Logan and Michael Diliberto and Danielle and John Guarino. AVENUE’S own president Randi Schatz got to know Erika Berman Rosenzweig, M.D., and Deborah and Kyle Pearlman chattered with Harry and Amy Zuckerman. Daria, Bradley, Andrea, and Janet Albert were all in attendance, as were Zara Zweber and Michael MacGilpin.
