UTICA - Local musican and doctor Tony Mandour hosted an event last month to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals at Mohawk Valley Health System.
The event,titled "Dynamic Duos & Tony's Picks: A Musical Review" was held at the Kirkland Art Center in Clinton and raised $2,200 for this special cause.
The Mandours have organized fundraisers for children's health initiatives for more than 18 years.
"We love knowing that every dollar donated stays right here in our community, helping local kids," Dr. Mandour said.
The MVHS Foundation is a member of CMN Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds for more than 170 children's hospitals worldwide. Donations to their local CMN Hospitals create miracles by funding programs, services, equipment and education that save and improve the lives of more than 18,000 local children, every year.
"We are so grateful to Dr. Mandour and his wife, Carol, for putting together this special event to benefit CMN Hospitals at MVHS," MVHS CMN coordinator Andrea McDiarmaid said in a statement.
