Longislandexchange.com: Daleview Care Center And Outback Steakhouse Team Up for Charity

(Farmingdale, N.Y.) On Saturday October 23, Daleview Care Center presented a check for $3,000 to a representative from the American Lung Association NY, made possible due to the generosity of the Outback Steakhouse in Merrick, NY and staff at Daleview Care Center.

Over 150 people supported Daleview’s first fundraising event to make it a complete success.

The $3,000 check was presented to Marianne Zacharia from the American Lung Association in New York by Mary Kochaniwsky, Administrator at Daleview and Jeffrey Abbate, Proprietor of Outback Merrick.  

“Daleview Care Center was honored to coordinate the fundraiser that brought attention to the respiratory problems many Americans face, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) the 4th leading killer of Americans. I am proud of our staff that worked on the fundraiser and attended the event to help promote the awareness of respiratory illnesses and disease” says Kochaniwsky.

The American Lung Association in New York works to prevent lung disease and improve the quality of life through research, education, and advocacy. To continue their fight, the American Lung Association depends on community support. Healthcare providers, such as Daleview Care Center in Farmingdale, specialize in restoring endurance and lessening the affects of respiratory illness on a person’s life; which is one of the reasons why Daleview began their Respiratory Rehabilitation program.

“In order to fulfill our important mission of saving lives by preventing lung disease and improving lung health, we need the support of the community,” said Scott T. Santarella, President and CEO of the American Lung Association in New York. “We were very pleased to partner with the Daleview Care Center in ensuring that Long Islanders with respiratory problems have access to the care they need and deserve. We were extremely grateful that Daleview hosted this fundraiser to support our mission and help us make strides toward realizing our shared vision of the world free of lung disease. When the Long Island Community supports the Lung Association, they’re supporting their many friends and neighbors who struggle every day to breathe and they’re making a real difference in people’s lives.”
