KiDS of NYU, a foundation working in partnership with NYU Langone Medical Center to enhance clinical and supportive care for children and families, paid tribute to Ellen and Ed Weiss this year at their annual Springfling Banquet. The event honored the Weiss’s for their 28 years of dedication and support of pediatrics at NYU Langone Medical Center through the Adam Scott Weiss Cancer Memorial Fund.
Founded in 1991 by a group of parents and pediatric doctors, KiDS has raised more than $11 million, principally through annual fundraising events. KiDS is unique among pediatric philanthropic efforts in that it provides funds to inpatient and outpatient programs that serve children throughout the Medical Center.
