From Patty Furlong:

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all enjoyed the Christmas AOH party. Thank you for a wonderful turn out!!!

We are planning a benefit for one of our student’s dads who has been critically ill. The benefit is being organized by Annmarie Acosta, Margie, Rose and myself. as we have all taught Sean Plunkett (affectionately known as Bob a loo – not sure of the spelling …Annmarie).

Sean’s dad has been seriously ill. He underwent a bone marrow transplant in October at New York Cornell Medical Center. He has developed many complications and still remains in critical condition. The family is under financial strain and is not able to make ends meet.  We are organizing a benefit to help out the family on Sunday – January 3rd from 12n-10pm at Rory Dolans in Yonkers..

We need your support (both financial, physical, donations for auction etc.) to help. This is one of our own who is going through a hardship.  With 3 weeks to go, we are actively trying to organize the performers, the raffles, Chinese baskets, the advertisements and whatever else needs to be done.

Rory Dolan’s is generous enough (again) to allow us to use his establishment. (Thank you Rory.)

Each school will be assigned a committee to head. We are meeting on Tues pm to finalize everything.

We know this is bad timing (when is it good timing?) but we will be asking for help, so thank you in advance.  We hope none of us ever have to go through this.



to volunteer to play, donate your time or items for auction or donations
