This year, checks were also presented to the Crisis Center and Traumatic Brain Injury Organization.

“This is a wonderful group of dedicated individuals devoted to helping others," said Jacobs, D-Woodbury. "It was especially meaningful to me because the incoming President, Barbara Goldstein, is a very dear friend for many years.”

Hofstra just opened their medical school - is this group newly formed or have they been raising funds for others in the past?

Originally part of Brandeis Women, this group reformed as Meadowbrook Women's Initiative 3 years ago. Hofstra Medical School was just about to open and was selected as the main recipiant of the fund raising, with 2 other charities chosen each year to share in the benefits of the fund raising. info@meadowbrookwomen.org
