A record-breaking $700,000 was raised at the 24th annual Katz Institute for Women’s Health Luncheon and Fashion Show featuring the Michael Kors Fall 2016 Collection on Sept. 22 at Old Westbury Gardens. Three former Northwell Health patients took the runway and shared their personal stories as they walked alongside a physician who impacted their lives. Fox 5 News anchor Kerry Drew emceed the event—a benefit presented by the Partners Council for Women’s Health. Money raised at this year’s event will increase the delivery of comprehensive health care, community-based wellness services and preventive health education to women and their families.
