Every Dollar Counts: Kids Helping Kids

L to R: St. Augustine students Sebastian Lopez, Shalin Jain, Emily Ruvulo and Brigid Byrnes.

Children of several WMCHealth employees are turning compassion into action. They’re raising money that helps save lives.

For third-grader Ronnie Nuzzaro III and sixth-grader Brigid Byrnes, collecting spare change and dollar bills though fun “penny wars” among different grades in their schools provided the path to help others.

Ronnie Nuzzaro, III, second from right with classmates and teachers at Gayhead Elementary School.

Ronnie, the son of Maria Nuzzaro, an Administrative Secretary in Westchester Medical Center’s Finance Department, attends Gayhead Elementary School in Hopewell Junction. The effort there raised $3,341.08.

Brigid, the daughter of Senior Director of Engagement Rosemary Byrnes, worked with her classmates at St. Augustine School in Ossining to support WMCHealth’s vital, life-saving mission. They collected $650.

L to R: Dylan Kur, Benjamin Kur, MD, and Riley Kur.

Meanwhile, Dylan and Riley Kur, daughters of oral surgeon Benjamin Kur, MD, hosted cupcake-baking classes for their friends. Dylan, 12, and Riley, 9, raised $1,000. They’re not done, though. A sequel – on baking doughnuts – is next.
