Rain Dampens the Course, but Not Spirits at Valley’s 5th Annual Scramble Fore the NICU


RIDGEWOOD, New Jersey, September 28, 2016 – Despite the rain on the morning of Monday, September 19, about 115 golfers gathered at Valley Brook Golf Course in River Vale for the 5th Annual Scramble Fore the NICU golf outing. 

The event was organized by Scramble Fore the NICU Golf Committee members Neonatologist Frank Manginello, M.D., Chair of Children's Services, Valley Medical Group; Andrew Chalhoub; Don Doraski; John Hodson; James Lin and Eric Wickstrom, all of whom had children cared for in Valley’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
    
“Despite the wet weather, we still had a strong crowd of people show up to support Valley’s NICU program again this year,” states Don Doraski.  “Most of us are parents of children who were born prematurely and treated by the wonderful doctors and nurses of Valley’s NICU.  Each year we return to this golf event to raise funds that will help other parents continue to experience this quality care.”

To date, this event has raised over $98,000, which includes just over $19,000 raised by this year’s outing for The Valley NICU.  Tickets were sold for $175 per golfer, which included 18 holes of golf, lunch with prizes and a tricky tray raffle.  The outing was once again sponsored by Ernst & Young. HTS New York and Panasonic also continued their large support of this event, and sent plenty of golfers to attend.  

The Valley Hospital’s 15-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has been designated by the State of New Jersey as a Level III nursery, a designation given to neonatal units that are able to provide the highest level of care for the highest-risk mothers and acutely ill newborns. Comprehensive medical care is provided by board-certified neonatologists, who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
