Little North Pole Shines In Annual Diabetes Fight

Despite a one day rain delay, the spirit of Christmas arrived in the Rockaways last Sunday night at the annual lighting of the Little North Pole at the Muré home at Beach 144 Street and Neponsit Avenue. Hosting again this year was Goumba Johnny of WKTU 103.5 and Tony Sirica, of the "Sopranos," joined Joe Muré in lighting the display. Former American Idol contestant and diabetic Kevin Covais sang and posed for photos with his fans. The event is a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and The Children's Diabetes Center at Peninsula Hospital. Photos by Miriam Rosenberg
