The Mount Sinai South Nassau fundraiser was the first in-per­son gathering of this kind since the start of the coronavirus pan­demic, and honored Peter Cannuscio.

Cannuscio is executive vice president and chief operating officer of Axis Con­struction Corp., which has played a key role in a number of Mount Sinai construction projects in recent years, including the 60,000-square-foot multi-specialty medical office building in Wantagh, as well as the urgent care center in Long Beach.
