Mineola, N.Y.- The Adelphi University baseball team competed in their annual charity game versus LIU Post on October 14, 2017 during the fall season to raise money for stroke awareness. The proceeds were given to Winthrop Hospital Department of Neuroscience Tuesday afternoon and presented to Neuroscience Chairman, Dr. Ajay Misra, Administrative, Director Gina Dutton, Director of Neurohospitalist and Stroke Services, Dr. Shazia Alam, along with other representatives from the department.
The annual charity game, played for stroke awareness this year, was dear to the hearts of both the Pioneers and the Panthers. The game was played in honor of Bill Gaffney, the father of the LIU Post head coach and Adelphi Hall of Famer (’98) and baseball alum. Gaffney received expert treatment from the hospital where they have helped him tremendously in his recovery the past several years.
The event raised over $1,000 dollars which was given directly to the Neuroscience Department at Winthrop Hospital on Tuesday afternoon.
This year, both teams decided to split the earnings and give half to Winthrop Hospital, and the remaining half to the American Red Cross after the mass devastation in Puerto Rico in result of Hurricane Maria.
