Several boxes of brand new clothing will be available at very low costs to residents at the Stuart Thomas Manor on Tuesday, May 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. The selling of the merchandise, close to 1,000 pieces generously donated by New Balance and Discus, is being done to further help the family of Michael Mianulli, a Farmingdale High School student whose life changed drastically after an accident at a friend's party left him paralyzed from the neck down last summer.
Earlier this month, a golf outing/dinner was held at the Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course in Woodbury in an effort to continue helping the Mianulli family. Last month, thanks to an effort initiated by Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto and Councilman Anthony Macagnone, several renovations were done to the Mianulli's home, including the expansion of doorways, conversion of the bathroom and expansion of the house from 750 square feet to 2,400 square feet. The May 25 event at the Stuart Thomas Manor is another effort to try to raise money for the Mianulli family to help Michael's homecoming, which is anticipated within the next few weeks, be as smooth as possible.
All clothing that will be sold at the fund-raiser is brand new and will be sold at very low prices, as low as $3 for some items, probably no more than about $10 for an item like a sweatshirt. Most items are shorts, shirts and other summer items, just in time for the warmer weather. All are invited to come down to the Stuart Thomas Manor, which graciously donated room in their hall for the event, next Tuesday to purchase some new summer clothing.
