Miracle On Beach 144 St.As Little North Pole Lights Up
When you do something good you're rewarded, is what Joe Muré said when, as if in a movie, it began to snow just as Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived at the annual lighting of the Little North Pole at Beach 144 Street and Neponsit Avenue last Saturday evening. In addition to bringing the spirit of Christmas to the Rockaways, the lighting of the Muré home is a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and The Children's Diabetes Center at Peninsula Hospital. Among those appearing were Long Island resident and American Idol contestant Kevin Covais, emcee Goumba Johnny from WKTU 103.5, and Tony Sirica, of the "Sopranos." Photos by Miriam Rosenberg.
