NEW YORK, NY – On Wednesday evening, November 11, 2015, the American Museum of Natural History will be the setting for the Autumn Ball 2015.  The gala celebrates the dedicated doctors, nurses, staff and benefactors of North Shore-LIJ Health System’s care locations in Manhattan, lead by Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital and Lenox Health Greenwich Village.


For over a century, the Autumn Ball has been regarded as one of the season’s most glamorous events, and this year is no exception. The evening will honor Ellen and Daniel Crown for their 25 years of service to Lenox Hill Hospital and serve as a celebration for the many milestones Lenox Hill Hospital, MEETH and Lenox Health Greenwich Village continue to achieve in their commitment to improving the health of residents throughout Manhattan.
