Seated (l-r): Jason, Elizabeth, Steve and Megan Koffer. Standing (l-r): MTA Deputy Superintendent Jaff McNally; MTA Senior Director, Administrator Employee Suggestion Program Gary Leibstein; MTA Chief Chaplain Rabbi Harry Berkowitz; MTA General Superintendent Coney Island Overhaul Shop, Fayez Saleh; and MTA Superintendent Car Repair Coney Island Overhaul Shop, Harry Jones. Butterflies by the Sea, Eisenstadt Hospice Center at Peninsula, was the host of a "rewarding" presentation to one of its inpatients this week. Steven Koffer, MTA employee, was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation and a cash award by senior MTA officials to thank him for his money-saving idea for the MTA. Koffer's idea, which came through the Employee Suggestion Program (ESP), has saved the MTA a great deal of money and employee time since its inception about a year ago. "I was just doing my job when I figured out a way to save money and time and passed that idea along to management," said a very modest Koffer. "I'm glad things worked out well for both the employees and management."

Koffer was joined by his wife, Elizabeth, his son, Jason, and his daughter, Megan, for the presentation in the Family Room of the Inpatient Hospice Center at Peninsula Hospital Center, affiliate of the North Shore-LIJ Health System.
