Hunter Sabety had the hot hand for the Long Island High School All-Stars as his team faced the New York City High School All-Stars at Beach Channel High School on October 20.

“We are honored to be able to support the noble cause of fostering independence, well-being, and safety of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease in the community and support for their caregivers,” wrote Carl Robinson, the founder of the mentoring program.

All proceeds from the game went to the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation. Among the sponsors were Belle Harbor Steak & Seafood, Elegante, People’s United Bank, Breakwater Surf, and Bryan Auto East. Also taking part were the organizers of the Stack Bundles Stop the Violence Basketball Tournament.



During halftime it was the youngsters who took to the hardwood – Kings Bay against Far Rockaway’s Team Deuces (in white). Fittingly, the 8 minute game ended in a tie.

With the New York City trailing at halftime, Far Rockaway’s Clarence Josey tries to instill some fight into the New York City team. The final score was Long Island 108, NYC 95.
