Levittowners Step In the Ring

Organizers with the Long Island Fight for Charity recently held a special “Final Call for Boxers and Boxer Announcement” reception, welcoming nearly 200 boxers, sponsors, supporters, committee members, volunteers, families and fans as well as business, nonprofit and other community leaders, who were anxious to hear the names of this year’s fighters. 

 

During the reception, this year’s competitors were introduced for the first time. The list included Stefan “Lights Out” Borovina and Mell “The Kid” Goldman of Levittown. 

 

The 11th Long Island Fight for Charity scheduled for Monday, November 24 is expected to attract more than 1,200 people and raise more than $200,000 for local charitable organizations.  To date $850,000 has been donated to Long Island charities. The Final Call reception was the last call for men and women to get involved in this unique marketing experience that benefits the Long Island Community Chest,

The Genesis School and the National Foundation for Human Potential, and other not-for-profits.

 

“We are looking forward to the November’s Fight for Charity Main Event and expect it to be a huge fundraising success,” said Fight for Charity Co-Founder Matt Silver. “This event is one of a series of events leading up to the big night that the Long Island business community is supporting. Once again, Victor Scotto and Scotto Brothers have demonstrated their support of our mission by sponsoring this event at the Chateau Briand, the perfect place for introducing the 2014 boxers and the individuals who will be working to make the 11th Fight for Charity a memorable night and a fundraising success.”

News

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution. 

 

The Levittown School District has been vigilant with the increase of cases in general. “We are continuing to implement the precautions provided by the health department and the CDC,” said Levittown School District Assistant Superintendent for Administration and Personnel Darlene Rhatigan. “We are also reminding students and staff to be mindful of the importance of proper hygiene including frequent hand washing.”

Audrey Zhang, a sixth grader at Island Trees Memorial Middle School, took home first place in the Long Island Arts Alliance (LIAA) on Sept. 17. Zhang was honored at the Cradle of Aviation Museum for her work and was presented with a $500 check and an iPad Mini. Many dignitaries were on hand, including State Education Department Regent Roger Tilles.
