10th Annual ‘Cooking For A Cure’ Hits $700,000

Proceeds donated in memory of Glen Cove’s Joe Mansi

The 10th Annual Cooking for a Cure event to benefit the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) touched the hearts of community members. Not only did the dinner help reach the $700,000 mark for funds raised through local charity events for diabetes research, but this year’s proceeds were donate to the DRI in loving memory of Glen Cover Joe Mansi, who sadly passed away this year at age 77. 

 

Nassau County Legislator and DRIF Board Member Delia DeRiggi– Whitton said she was very grateful that the Cooking for a Cure committee put on a 10th successful evening of gourmet delights at Page One Restaurant, owned by Joe Mansi’s daughter Jeanine DiMenna, who has given so much to the Glen Cove community. The event was sponsored in part by Page One Restaurant, which is co-owned and co-operated by Peter Antonopoulos and Chef DiMenna. Proud to serve the people of the city she grew up in, Chef DiMenna, a member of this hard-working event committee, and once again created delicious fare for the special evening.

 

DeRiggi-Whitton became involved with fundraising for the DRI shortly after her 14-year-old daughter, Amanda, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 3.

 

“The theme of Cooking for a Cure has always been hope,” she said. “We believe that the DRI is so dedicated to finding a cure for our children that one day our hope for a cure will turn into a reality.”

This year Cooking for a Cure honored Dr. Barbara Keber, associate director of the Family Medicine Residency program at Glen Cove Hospital.  

 

Dr. Keber was recently named Physician of the Year by the Metropolitan New York Association of Diabetes Educators (MNYADE). Dr. Keber was recognized for her expertise, professionalism and creativity in helping individuals with diabetes learn how to effectively manage their disease. Dr. Keber is a team leader and member of the multidisciplinary Task Force for Diabetes Center Accreditation at Glen Cove Hospital.

 

Thanks to the task force’s efforts, in 2009, Glen Cove Hospital was the first hospital in New York State to earn advance inpatient diabetes management by The Joint Commission.

 

“Dr. Keber has worked in family medicine and diabetes care management for most of her medical career. Her compassion, caring and commitment to her patients’ is admirable. We honor Dr. Keber for her unending dedication and support of those she cares for,” said DeRiggi-Whitton.

Veterans, police, residents and elected officials turned out for the renaming of Route 107/ Arterial Highway for Glen Cove’s most honored hero, Sergeant Major Daniel Joseph Daly, in a ceremony that took place on Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.
