Magician Kenny B Never Fails to Charm Patients and Parents

NYEE employees distribute health information(January 2012) -- Kenny B- Magician from Tom Kaufman Productions is a most unexpected volunteer – he performs for patients of The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai as a way of “giving back” to the community in gratitude for the way NYEE saved a friend’s hearing.

He does close-up tricks using everyday objects, very well suited to the small spaces on hospital floors. As he brought his magic to children in the Pediatric Playroom and waiting rooms of the Ambulatory Care Center, patients of all ages, parents and visitors gave great reviews: “I really enjoyed seeing him in this very hectic time,” “Thumbs Up, he’s awesome and real cool,” and “He’s very entertaining.”

Kenny B and the Volunteer Services Department will team up again to make waiting times magically seem to disappear!

Young patients of The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary Cochlear Implant / Hearing & Learning Center received free tickets to a ballgame on Saturday, September 18, as NYEE based Children’s Hearing Institute partnered with the New York Mets for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Awareness Day at Citifield.  In all more than 1,000 hearing impaired children from school programs throughout the NY metro area attended the game.

The NY Mets provided sign language interpreters as well as captions on the ribbon boards surrounding the ballpark for the deaf and hard-of-hearing fans in attendance. The National Anthem was signed by a group of hearing-impaired students, and was a moving opening to this special day for all.
