These doctors are burning the candle at both ends.

New York Methodist Hospital held its annual Candlelight Gala at the Brooklyn Museum on May 10, celebrating the people who make the hospital possible and raising money to improve health care at the 132-year-old Park Slope hospital. Organizers said the event exceeded their own prognosis for success.

“A beautiful, iconic Brooklyn setting, delicious food, great entertainment, and distinguished honorees — not to mention 650 elegant and enthusiastic attendees — all combined to create a spectacular evening,” said Hospital spokeswoman Lyn Hill.

Attendees were treated to drinks and hors d’oeuvres before a dinner and awards ceremony. Then, hospital movers and shakers closed out the evening dancing to tunes by the Michael Hart Band.

The evening honored doctors Anthony G. Saleh and Joseph J. Bove — both of whom have been with the medical center for more than two decades — for their leadership and direction, Hill said.

All told, the fund-raiser gala garnered half a million dollars for medical programs, new equipment, and research initiatives at the hospital, she said.
