Proceeds Benefit Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

(August 1, 2012 - RockvilleCentre, NY) - Skies were threatening early on, but the weather cooperated and the spirit of generosity of sponsors and players enabled The Friends of Mercy Medical Center to raise some $30,000 at their 31st Annual Golf Classic.

Brisman of Neurological Surgery, P.C., the largest private neurosurgery practice on Long Island and in the New York Tristate area, which has been a sustaining sponsor of the Golf Classic, and has provided generous ongoing support for all of The Friends major fund-raising events for many years.

The Golf Classic was co-chaired for a third consecutive year by Joseph and Thomas Graham of Rockville Centre, co-founders of JJT Energy, a firm supplying natural gas to the commercial and residential market.

Proceeds from this event will support Mercy's Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the only such facility on the south shore of Nassau County. Mother/Baby services are at the core of Mercy's mission and the funds raised at the Golf Classic help to make it possible for the hospital to assist mothers and babies throughout the community, including the less fortunate and the uninsured.

Over the past five years, the Friends have raised some $1.5 million to support hospital facilities.
