Dr. Steven J. Ruden and his wife, Linda, recently presented a check for $2500.00 to Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. This donation represented the proceeds from the Sea Cliff Health Center's "Smiling Makes You happy" button campaign and from the staff's donation of their holiday "grab bag" money. Patients of Dr Ruden and others purchased the "Smiling Makes You Happy" buttons knowing that they were helping Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. Dr. Dorothy Whelan (orthodontist), Dr. Ed Jukowitz (periodontist) and Drs. Hirsch, Ehrenman, and Khan (pediatrics) also donated generously to this campaign. Dr. Ruden matched all donations. Mrs. Ruden said that she had met Terry Petikas, Founder of Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S., many years ago and had always considered her to be an inspiration. Since that meeting, she and Dr. Ruden have been generous supporters of Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S.
Many thanks and smiles to Dr. and Mrs. Ruden, their staff, patients and colleagues! Their generosity allows Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. to continue its educational and patient support programs.
