Port Washington residents came out in droves Friday evening, Sept. 28, to LaMotta's Restaurant to support victims of the September 11th attack, specifically firefighters, New York City police and Port Authority workers. Eight hundred and fifty people gathered to show their support, among them Senator Balboni, Rev. Kurt Von Roeschlaub who gave a moving eulogy, Angelo Ferrara, and Tom Tobin, fire chief and chaplain. The singing of the Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America added to the event's feeling of unity and community spirit. Raffles were drawn and T-shirts and pins were sold to help raise the evening's total of $11,000. "Money is still coming in," said Guy LaMotta. "It was nice to see all the people come."

LaMotta's was packed, elbow to elbow, according to those who attended the fundraiser.

It's not too late to get in on the cause. T-shirts are still being sold at LaMotta's Restaurant and some local businesses, and can be found at our local street fairs as well.

Special thanks to the many people who made this evening a success.
