It’s amazing how many people are willing to jump into the winter waters of Oyster Bay Harbor for a good cause. The United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, Inc. (ucpn) hosted its 7th Annual Polar Bear Plunge benefit fundraiser at Theodore Roosevelt Town Park and Marina in Oyster Bay. The parking lot was in the midst of a construction project to create new playing fields but it didn’t deter the crowd. It was a rain or shine event and luckily the rain waited until the swimmers were out of the water!

On Thursday, Feb. 3, AMF Garden City Lanes transformed from a bowling alley into an Islanders playground, as eight players laced up their clown-like, ruby-red bowling shoes and hit the hardwood with some of their biggest fans. The Lady Islanders Girls Ice Hockey Program of Long Island held their second annual Bowl-A-Thon in conjunction with the Islanders to fundraise for their Under-19, Under-14, Under-12 and Under-10 teams. The four female squads, solicited sponsors for this year’s event, collecting over $6,000 to help pay for ice time, jerseys, equipment, tournament registrations, league fees and more. In addition to raising money, the girls were rewarded with the opportunity to bowl with some of their hockey heroes. They also had the chance to take numerous photos with the boys in blue and brought home bags full of autographed yearbooks and player cards. Veterans Matt Moulson, Bruno Gervais and Josh Bailey led the way and brought rookie teammates Nathan Lawson, Ty Wishart, Jeremy Colliton and Travis Hamonic along for the evening’s festivities.
