8/15/2010: Bone Marrow Drive

State Senator Shirley L. Huntley (D-Jamaica)attended a bone marrow drive accompanied by rap impresario and entertainer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. The event took place in Southeast Queens at 50’s Community Garden. The bone marrow drive was inspired by the story of 11-year-old leukemia patient, and Broadway’s Lion King star Shannon Tavarez. Unfortunately Shannon still hasn't found a bone marrow match, so when Senator Huntley heard of the event, she came out to register as a potential marrow donor. Senator Huntley also wanted to bring attention to the need for people to register and get swabbed to see if they could be candidates to donate marrow for Shannon and others suffering from leukemia. 50 Cent sponsored the registry through his G-Unity Foundation.

7/11/2010: Charity car wash raises nearly $7,000

It was scrub-a-dub-dub in Howard Beach this past weekend, as over 100 big-hearted people rolled up their sleeves and got wet to raise thousands at New York Families for Autistic Children’s (NYFAC) fifth annual charity car wash and car show.

It was the most successful ever, raising just “a touch” under $7,000.

“People are very supportive of what we do,” said Andrew Baumann, president and CEO of NYFAC.

He explained that, in this economic climate, fundraisers are pivotal.

“When one door closes, another opens,” he said. “The people of this community [Howard Beach] are extremely generous and warm and have opened their hearts to the kids.”

“A lot of kids from the neighborhood came out to pitch in,” continued Baumann.
