Celebrate the Sala Community




$2.1 million


In honor of its tenth anniversary, Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care celebrated its decade-long commitment to enhancing care, patient experience, quality, and safety for children and families on November 6.

Sala-bration guests heard directly from patient families, frontline healthcare providers, NYU Langone leaders, and Trudy Elbaum Gottesman and Robert W. Gottesman, Sala Institute’s co-founders, on the difference Sala has made in caring for children with complex and chronic illnesses. The night was filled with joy and dancing inspired by the Bobby Gee’s, a rock and roll band led by Bob Gottesman.

Over 200 people attended the event and Sala raised over $2.1 million. These funds will directly benefit children who receive care at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone and their families through Sala’s supportive services, resilience programs, partnership programs, and safety and quality initiatives.

Thank you to all members of the Sala community for your generosity!

Thank you to Sala-bration’s corporate sponsors!
