Americana Manhasset is pleased to announce that NLD for Pediatrics will be the beneficiary for the 5th Annual Americana Manhasset Concours d’Elegence, presented by Ritz-Carlton Residences, North Hills. The event will take place on Sunday, October 12.

NLD raises funds for the Child Life Program at Schneider Children’s Hospital as well as other critical hospital based programs such as the Urgicenter walk-in center. A special raffle drawing for a 2008 Maserati GranTurismo will be held at the conclusion of the Concours award presentation. The car was provided by Maserati Long Island as part of a fundraising initiative to benefit the NLD. Tickets are $250 or five tickets for $1,000.

“We are proud to support the NLD at this year’s Concours. The uncertainties of illness and hospitalization can be very traumatic for the entire family,” states Deirdre Costa Major, President of Americana Manhasset. “The money raised from this year’s raffle will have a direct impact on the Child Life Programs that are so vital to the health and recovery of sick children and their family.“

“Maserati Long Island is committed to help raise funds for the NLD. The excitement that
surrounds the upcoming Concours provides a wonderful backdrop for Long Island Maserati to support the programs of the NLD for Pediatrics,” states Stuart Hayim, Owner, Maserati Long Island.
