On March 28th, Legislator Steven J. Flotteron congratulated two exceptional charities in Suffolk County. The inaugural Mardi Gras Run to the Great South Bay Brewery was a success from all standpoints, and enabled The Greater Long Island Runners Club to make $2,500 donations to both the Bay Shore Athletic Sponsors and The Morgan Center in Brightwaters.

 

The Morgan Center is dedicated to providing preschool age children who are undergoing treatment for cancer the opportunity to interact and socialize in a safe environment. Children on chemotherapy treatment have a suppressed immune system, and otherwise could risk infection and serious illness by attending typical preschool programs.  The $2500 check was accepted by Rod Zuch, the Founder of the Morgan Center, who currently serves as one of the six Trustees.

President of the Bay Shore Athletic Sponsors, Charlie Flood, accepted their $2,500 check. Their mission is to provide conjunctive support to the interscholastic sports programs and student athletes of the Bay Shore School District.  


“Whenever we do an event in a local area, we try to choose one or more local organizations as our charitable beneficiaries,” said Running Club Race Director Ric DiVeglio. “Thanks to the input of Great South Bay Brewery Founder Rick Sobotka, we were able to choose two charities in the Bay Shore-Brightwaters area that are doing extremely important work.”
