HUNTINGTON, NY – Huntington Hospital will host its annual black tie gala at Oheka Castle on Friday, December 4, 2015.
This year’s event honors the father and son team of Ted and Craig Weiss, who together head one of Long Island’s leading real estate development and management firms. The gala is being presented in part by the Arlindo & Evelyn Jorge Family Foundation, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, the Huntington Hospital Medical Staff and T. Weiss Realty Corp.
“Being named co-honorees for the 2015 Huntington Hospital gala is a distinction few fathers and sons have the opportunity to share,” said Ted Weiss. “I am thrilled that the hospital is honoring the two of us.”
Over 400 guests are expected to attend including physicians, hospital trustees and major benefactors. The Weisses hope to raise $400,000 to benefit the expansion of Huntington Hospital’s emergency, inpatient oncology and maternity departments. Construction has already begun on the hospital’s new emergency wing, with an expected completion date that coincides with the hospital’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2016.
Craig Weiss, who joined the family business in 2007 after three years in the financial services industry and is now the company’s president, said, “I am delighted to be an honoree for the gala and I am eagerly anticipating working with Huntington Hospital to raise awareness and the necessary funding for future improvements.”
Huntington Hospital’s Executive Director Gerard X. Brogan, Jr., MD, added, “Huntington Hospital is grateful to have the support of both Ted and Craig Weiss to help raise awareness and support for the hospital’s capital improvement program and, in particular, the emergency department.”
T. Weiss Realty’s current portfolio includes 600,000 square feet of Class-A office space in Melville occupied by several Fortune 500 businesses, as well as a medical office building in Massapequa.
