It was fun to see some of you last Saturday afternoon, April 6, 2013 at the fundraiser for the Long Island Toy Lending Center, organized by Project Pay It Forward of Long Beach. There was a good crowd at The Point Ale House to pitch in to help get the funds to rebuild the not-for-profit’s flooded premises.
I didn’t win, but that GG (Gigi?)? either bought a bazillion tickets, or is really lucky or something!
A stripped down but nevertheless cranking St Elvis provided the soundtrack for the day.
Everyone was struck by this cutie, Mckenzie Bender, who was showing her best dance moves. There was even some funny chatter revolving around Mckenzie’s shoes, (sandals) which it turns out several ladies were highly envious of. Someone promised me a better picture of her…obviously I”m still waiting!!!
Colleen Moseman of Long Island Toy Lending Center takes it all in stride. It’s been a long road here and 5 months later they’re finally a big step closer to rebuilding. Colleen says the event “went really well” meaning a great amount was raised and the funds are mostly in place for the rebuild. There will be meetings and discussions soon and then rebuilding and literally raising the roof will begin.
Donations can still go a long way to help cover expenses.
For direct donations make checks payable to
