    The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research was founded in 1998 by Marc Lustgarten, former vice chairman of Cablevision who died of pancreatic cancer in 1999, and Charles Dolan, chairman of Cablevision.

    The mission of the foundation is to advance the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer.

    Following a multi-million dollar enhancement of Danfords Hotel & Marina, the new Aqua, Port Jefferson’s first and only waterfront dance club and tapas lounge, launched in February 2010.

    The first floor incorporates the casually sophisticated, all-white Wave Lounge where a dedicated collection of tapas and cocktails are served.

    The high-energy dance club, located on the second level, overlooks the harbor and boasts a large dance floor and bar. The two levels are united via a sound system.
