Helping Sick Children Has Become a Community Project
What started as a MacArthur grad's way to assist children who have to spend the holidays in the hospital, the way he did in his senior year of high school, has become a community event, which was clearly evident at Levittown Memorial Education Center last Thursday evening at the Fourth Annual Toys for Sick Children Benefit Reception.

Showing great resiliency, the Bulldog's eighth grade basketball team rebounded from a four point defeat against Plainview and played a very spirited game against Wisdom Lane and came away with a comfortable 63-48 victory. With their record now at 5-1, the Dawgs move into a difficult part of their schedule. Leading the way for the Bulldogs was Vincent Ciaravino with 25 points and 17 rebounds in a sheer display of power. Ryan Hollett scored 21 before fouling out early in the final period. Christian Salvage tore through the Wisdom press and finished with 11 points and eight assists. Brian Spiess added three, James Cobin two and Rob Lovaglio one to round out the scoring. Key rebounding by Albert Wong and Rich DiGregorio were huge factors in the win. Tough defense throughout by T.J. Fabis, Brian Beissel, Michael Topel and Sean Walsh helped to seal the victory.
