Nearly $6,000 was raised for PFY, formerly Pride for Youth, a division of the Long Island Crisis Center whose mission is to enhance the health and wellness of the LGBTQ+ community, through a PrideFest grass volleyball tournament on June 10.
The tournament held at Eisenhower Park was the second all-day, pride-themed grass competition hosted by Volleyball Long Island. There were winners in the men’s doubles, women’s doubles and reverse co-ed. Twenty courts of volleyball saw action and camaraderie on the sunny Saturday.
“The volleyball community continues to embrace this event, making it one of the most anticipated tournaments of the year,” Glenn Yankow, VBLI’s founder and managing director, said in a statement. “Coupled with a beautiful day weather-wise and the ongoing support of PFY, we’re inspired to make next year’s PrideFest bigger and better.”
The third annual PrideFest will take place next June.Playing Pride volleyball for a good cause
