Benefit To Help Children

Benefit To Help Children

A benefit to raise funds to assist in helping with the needs and education of five young children will be held on Sunday, June 9, 2002.

The Rockaway Council #2672 of the Knights of Columbus, in conjunction with the friends of a local Rockaway family, is sponsoring this fundraiser for the children who lost their mother, Nicole Crawford, aged 34, as a result of terminal cancer.

The children of the deceased mother are two boys, ages 3 and 13, and three girls, ages 5, 10, and 11.

There will be hot dogs, burgers, a DJ, raffles and a cash bar. Donations will be accepted at the door. The benefit will be held at the Rockaway Council, located at 333 Beach 90th Street, Rockaway Beach.

The family offers their thanks in advance to all those neighbors that offer thoughts, prayers, and help in this time of need.

Any unwanted toys and clothes, in good condition, are also appreciated. Those that can help should call 516-579-3945, and ask for Jim, Rusty, or Mary.
