The Mazzei family’s “Gift of Life” benefit, hosted by Michael and Jamie Mazzei of NuBest Salon in Manhasset, NY, was recently held at the North Hills Country Club in North Hills, NY, with proceeds directed toward scientific investigations aimed at advancing the work of the North Shore-LIJ Transplant Center . The Mazzei family was inspired to support the Transplant Center as a result of their personal experience in 2011, when when son Jamie donated his kidney to his father, Michael. The surgery was performed by Ernesto Molmenti, MD, surgical director of the Transplant Center, and Louis Kavoussi, MD, the health system’s chair of urology. The guest emcee for the evening was Mona Rivera, radio personality and reporter for 1010 WINS Radio.
