The North Hills Country Club (NHCC), home of recent Spring Swing Invitational Golf Tournaments hosted by the Mill Neck Family of Organizations (MN), held their second annual Softball Game this summer at The Wheatley School in Old Westbury. The two successful events had commonalities–both honored and were held in memory of longtime supporter, country club member and avid sports fanatic Billy Donnelly, and both benefitted the organizations he loved.
Led by fellow NHCC member Scott Raffa (of Encore Events), this summer, the softball game had a vast turnout of enthusiasts and players, including President Dominick Salzano, who manned second base the entire game, and Hall of Fame New York Yankee pitcher Whitey Ford, who actively participated in the day’s festivities.

On a recent Saturday afternoon, July 30, the famed Carnesecca Arena at St. John’s University was packed with thousands of basketball fans, all there for a worthwhile, but melancholy event. The arena was host to the Malone Mulhall Benefit Game 2011, a charity contest to assist the families of Floral Park residents who lost loved ones—-Jamie and Paige Malone and Michael Mulhall—-in an accident a year ago on the Meadowbrook Parkway.
The event became a reality due to the efforts of one of the victim’s boyfriend, but also to the legendary status of Jim Malone who was a former Roslyn High School counselor and for years, has been the head basketball coach of Beach Channel High School in Rockaway, Queens.
