MONTICELLO –– Dawn Ciorciari, General Manager of Bold Gold Media New York Region, recently presented an $85,000 check to Jerry Dunlavey, COO of Garnet Health Medical Center - Catskills, on behalf of the entire 98.3 WSUL Heart-A-Thon Board, from proceeds from the 44th Annual 98.3 WSUL Heart-A-Thon in February 2022.
“On behalf of Garnet Health Medical Center - Catskills, we are extremely honored to receive this donation. The support from our Sullivan County community is quite astounding,” says Dunlavey. “All money donated will stay here in Sullivan County and will be used to purchase an Echocardiography System which will enhance the diagnosis of heart disease, providing faster results to allow for immediate treatment options and ultimately better health outcomes.”
Dunlavey continues, “A heartfelt thank you to the Heart-A-thon Committee, especially Bold Gold, for their support of Garnet Health Medical Center - Catskills over the last 44 years. We look forward to many more years of partnering together to save lives.”
The 98.3 WSUL Heart-A-Thon will celebrate its 45th year on Friday, February 17, from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. at Resorts World Catskills Epicenter and broadcast live on 98.3 WSUL. This is the 2nd year that Resorts World Catskills is hosting this community event.
“For 44 years, the Heart-A-Thon has worked to save the lives of many, and we are honored to once again join them in their efforts to ensure patients have access to the best medical technology and care,” said Megan Taylor, VP Government Affairs & Public Relations, Resorts World New York. “We can’t think of a better way to help promote health and wellness in and around our community. Plus, we’re excited this year’s event has expanded to include more of our community partners throughout Sullivan County.”
This year the event focuses on three areas; Prevention, Education, and Treatment of Heart Disease in Sullivan County.
“In the past the 98.3 WSUL Heart-A-Thon has benefitted equipment for treatment of heart disease, we feel we now have an opportunity to expand our support locally by the additional focus on Prevention and Education. We will be continuing our work with Garnet Health Medical Center - Catskills, but we are bringing in additional partners like Suny Sullivan, A Single Bite, and Sullivan 180,” said Ciorciari.
Proceeds will benefit Treadmills for the Cardiac Rehab, portable Cardiac Monitors, and a Vital Machine for the Garnet Medical Center - Catskills; The Warrior Teens Program and an Outdoor Fitness Pad in Monticello with Sullivan 180, A Singe Bite’s Real Food School Education Program, and Building Sullivan’s Healthcare Workforce Academic Scholarships with SUNY Sullivan.
