Lenox Hill Hospital held its Annual Autumn Ball on Monday, October 20, 2008 at the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria in New York. Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC-TV's Good Morning America received  the 2008 Lenox Hill Hospital "Medal of Distinction". More than 840 guests filled the elegantly decorated ballroom for the Autumn Gala.  Over two million dollars was raised for the hospital's medical services and community programs.

The festivities began with Roberts' surgeon, Dr. Lauren Cassell, who spoke about Robin's journey through her diagnosis with breast cancer.  Gladys George, president and CEO of Lenox Hill Hospital and William O. Hiltz, chairman of the Board along with Dr. Cassell presented the Hospital's highest honor, the Medal of Distinction, to Robin Roberts for “her personal strength and courage in promoting early breast cancer detection and treatment.”

Gladys George and William Hiltz then saluted some of the talented people and exciting initiatives that are shaping the future of Lenox Hill Hospital – including a brand new look and corporate identity for the hospital.

Guests then enjoyed a wonderful dinner and dancing to the music of The Deanna Jones Orchestra and were sent home with eco-friendly recyclable gift bags which included copies of Robin Roberts' new book "From the Heart: Eight Simple Rules To Live By" donated by Dr. Cassell and Origins Stress Reliever Serum and Black Orchid fragrance by Tom Ford donated by William Lauder and Karen Lauder.
