Nearly 300 people attended NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital’s Wine and Dine Around the World event on November 21 to raise money for breast cancer education.

The benefit at Trump National Golf Course in Briarcliff Manor raised $30,000 for the Ashikari Breast Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital again presents "Wine and Dine Around the World" this time with a Mediterranean flair.

More than 20 fine restaurants participated in the event, which this year featured foods and wines of the Mediterranean.

"We thank everyone here for supporting this wonderful event," said Dr. Andrew Ashkiari, of the Ashikari Breast Center. "The funds raised here tonight will allow us to support future educational and research programs such as the symposium we had this past fall."

Proceeds from last year’s event helped to finance a Breast Cancer Symposium on September 28 at Doral Arrowwood in Rye Brook which brought together area oncologists and breast surgeons to share best practices and the latest techniques in breast cancer treatment.
