Volleyball XVIII - Saturday, September 6, 2014
Long Beach, NY
As our community thaws after a brutally cold winter and eagerly anticipates the warmth and sunshine of spring and summer, we at the Michelle O'Neill Foundation are preparing for our 18th annual volleyball fundraiser, known to many as the "best event of the summer." Although many of us may still be struggling with construction and insurance issues from Hurricane Sandy, we are steadfastly recovering, rebuilding and lovingly continue to help others through Michelle's Foundation!!!
Last year's tournament was truly extraordinary! Although the Long Beach boardwalk was not fully completed, we gathered on Laurelton Boulevard beach and hosted a volleyball fundraiser that surpassed all our previous tournaments in attendance, as well as donations. After the devastation of super storm Sandy, the atmosphere was exponentially charged with the need to be together with neighbors and friends gathered to help the children who needed help. The excitement and enjoyment was heightened by the presence of Amanda, William, Natalie and Danny, four of the children and their families that the Foundation has been able to help through your love and generosity.
Over the course of last year, we have also assisted the families of Dougie, Connor, Reese, Brian, Kaitlyn, Isabella, Alex, Nathaniel, Savannah, Sean and Dylan - among many others. In addition, we have supported oncology organizations that serve them, e.g., Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Make-A-Wish, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Big Sky Kids, Moustaches for Kids and Ronald McDonald House.
Our love and thanks to our sponsors, volley-teers and donors for making our 17th annual volleyball tournament successful and memorable. We are looking forward to perpetuating the statement "best event ever" and to continue helping children who need our help. If you would like to help us help the kids, please join us for our 18th annual fundraiser on Saturday, September 6th on the beach in Long Beach, NY.
