25th Annual Light Up A Life

| October 28, 2014 | Parties

On Saturday, October 18th, acclaimed actress Naomi Watts was joined by more than 1,000 guests dressed as ghouls, goblins, ballerinas and more at the 25th annual Light Up A Life Halloween carnival, benefitting the Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center on Saturday, October 18, at the Field House at Chelsea Piers. The event raised nearly $500,000 to benefit pediatric patient care programs.

To honor the 25th anniversary of Light Up A Life, there was a grand ceremony that included a parade featuring the Knickerbocker Greys and NewYork-Presbyterian/Komansky physicians, remarks by Dr. Gerald Loughlin, pediatrician-in-chief at the Komansky Center for Children's Health at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, and confetti cannons. The event is an annual Hospital tradition founded by Pediatric Support Committee member and chair of the Founders Committee, Kathleen Burns.
