WEST ORANGE, NJ - On Thursday October 24th, The BBN Foundation, founded by Dr. Anthony Orsini, hosted its inaugural gala “The Moment of Compassionate Truth” to raise funds in order to promote education on compassionate communication between healthcare professionals, patients, and families.

The gala was hosted at the Wilshire Grand Hotel in West Orange, New Jersey and was a huge success. Guests enjoyed a night full of entertainment, food, and a silent auction with fabulous items to take home at the end of the night; such as weekend getaways, shopping gift cars, and sports memorabilia from the NY Jets and the NY Yankees. Two-time world traveler and motivational speaker, Scott Chesney, was invited to speak at the event and Dr. Orisini and Dr. Mary Ann LoFrumento presented an award to the Atlantic Health System recognizing them as a “BBN Center of Excellence for Compassionate Communication in Healthcare.” Dr. Walter Rosenfeld, Chairman of Pediatrics at Goryeb Children’s Hospital, accepted the award on behalf of Atlantic Health System and expressed his full support for the foundation.
