Actual Housewives of New Jersey invade Brooklyn to tackle Maimonides staff
The stars went to Maimonides Park on August 12th in the name of charity.
The Maimonides All-Stars cast Bravo’s hit reality show “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” in the second annual Battle for Brooklyn charity softball game.
Cross River Bank, which sponsored the event, presented Maimonides Medical Center with a check for $ 125,000 prior to the game. All proceeds from the game went to the hospital’s breast center.

“We are grateful to our partners at Bravo and Cross River Bank for their dedication and support in this important annual event,” said Heshy Augenbaum, Chief Development Officer at Maimonides. “We are grateful to everyone who donated and enjoyed a fun summer evening with softball, with a little healthy competition between Maimonides staff and the housewives.”
Team Housewives defeated Maimonides 10-6.
Maimonides’ team included CEO and President Ken Gibbs, as well as Chair of Surgery and Director of the Breast Center, Dr. Patrick Borgen, who was the captain.
The Housewives team consisted of the actors Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and team captain Dolores Catania.
The former running back of the New York Giants, Tiki Barber, made a surprising appearance.
Following the game, the guests were spoiled with fireworks on the occasion of the hospital’s 110th birthday.
“What a home run on Thursday night the Battle 4 Brooklyn event in support of @maimonidesmedcenter hospital was,” Catania said on Instagram. “Thanks to everyone who stood up for such a great cause.”
