Part of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations, the ECC provides early and intensive assistance to children, ages 3 and 4, who may have deficits in speech, language/ communication, cognitive and gross and fine motor development. This year’s Spring Swing proceeds will assist in funding the planned $800,000 much-needed building renovation project in order to upgrade and enhance the ECC’s internal structure and functionality.
Before teeing off, golfers had an opportunity to meet with Bud Harrelson, who made an appearance during brunch. The former shortstop, who played with the New York Mets during their legendary 1969 World Series Championship, graciously signed autographs and related his personal connection to deafness. Harrelson, current co-owner of the Long Island Ducks and member of the coaching staff, explained that a cousin in his father’s family was deaf.

“This program is more than competitions and sports. It is more than winning and losing. It is more than defeating an opponent. This program is basically a preparation for life because it teaches values. It teaches character and persistence, and perseverance, and determination, and overcoming adversity,” said Glen Cove Superintendent Dr. Joseph Laria while addressing the audience at the awards ceremony. “That is what this program is all about.”
