Peter Castellana III, Peter Castellana Jr. and the Castellana Foundation recently made a donation in the amount of $2,500.00 to support the Gift of Life Gala.
The Gift of Life NYC organization brings children to the United States for heart surgeries when they are not available in their country.
The heart and soul of Gift of Life International is the children around the world who today are afflicted with heart disease and do not have care available to them. Over 5.5 million children are born each year with a congenital heart defect while 94% of them do not have access to treatment.
Over the past 4 decades, the organization has helped more than 18,000 children from emerging countries receive treatment for their heart disease. These children have come from 71 different countries and otherwise would not have been treated.
There are over 70 Gift of Life programs throughout the world.
