Fundraiser was a success

To the Editor:

On behalf of myself and the East Rockaway Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank the Herald very much for the outstanding job you did on the article “Fundraiser held for stricken Fishery owner” in last week’s issue.

I would also like to thank everyone in the community for their outpouring of support. All the raffles were donated by individuals, restaurant owners and many, many business owners. The fundraiser was very successful, and Charlie Lunenfeld would be happy to see how everyone loves and cares about him.  

A video was made of the event to show to Charlie so he can see just how great a turnout there was. Fishery co-owner Keith Griffin and Manager Mary Ellen Jacobs and their staff did a fabulous job running all the raffles and welcoming the people who came through the doors.

If anyone was not able to join us that day they can still contribute by sending their  donation to “Friends of Charlie Lunenfeld,” c/o Debbie Hirschberg at Capital One Bank, 115 Main St., East Rockaway, N.Y. 11518.
