The Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead held their 2010  Candlelight Ball on Saturday, March 6th at 6:30PM in the sumptuous and spacious East Wind Inn ( in Wading River.

The evening began with cocktails and canapies and time to view and peruse the silent auction displays.

The East Wind's banquet room is a grand and elegant space
with exquisite chandeliers and which has trompe l'oeil classic balustrades and urns surrounding the entire room's ceiling.

The evening's tribute began with awards to:  Steven Perlmutter, MD for Physician of the Year.  George Ruggiero, Director of Education who received the Rising Star Award and Devendra Singh, MD who has practiced pulmonary and internal medicine for 50 years and received the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Community Honoree Tribute was given to John and Elaine Kanas in recognition of the Kanas family's substantial financial gift to the Peconic Bay Medical Center's new wing.  This new surgical Pavilion is a technological state of the art on both US and International levels and it has been named The Kanas Center for Advanced Surgery
(  Mr. Kanas is a LI native and a worldwide wild game hunter and who also built up Northfork Bank and sold it to Capital One.  He is now developing in Florida Bank United with 60 branches.

The event was attended by over 300 guests which included Philanthropists, Jesse "Bobby" Robinson and Dhonna Goodale,
who have been most supportive in the financial needs of the
Peconic Bay Medical Center.

Others attending were Richard Novak

The cuisine of filet mignon and lobster tails was excellent...The Silent Auction and dancing was great fun...This was truly a great success for the joy of giving.
