A fundraiser is being planned for a Sayville family dealing with a serious medical issue and organizers are looking for raffle items and community support.
The Connetquot/Sayville ice hockey team will hold the fundraiser on Saturday, December 8 to help the Kelly family. Dawn Kelly was recently diagnosed with ALS.
“The Kelly family are longtime residents of Sayville, very well loved and known. The decline in her health has been very fast and the family is struggling to cope and help their mother,” said an organizer involved in the effort.
“We are trying to get the word out to make this as successful as possible. We are also still hoping to get more donations for raffle baskets,” the organizer added.
The event, called “A Fundraiser for the Kelly Family,” will be held at 53 Holly Drive in Sayville between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. and a 100 percent of the funds will be donated to the family.
There will be raffle baskets as well as a 50/50. For those who can’t make the fundraiser there are two opportunities to help.
One is through check donations payable to the Connetquot/Sayville Ice Hockey and mailed to Donna Neumann, 51 West 3rd Street, Ronkonkoma, NY 11779. The second is to make a purchase of goods online as the party will be selling items from lia sophia and another retail goods store.
