On Friday, Nov. 16, the Carle Place Arts & Education Booster Club held our annual fundraising concert, BLAST!
Every year Carle Place students, teachers, alumni and community members join together for a night of music and fun to raise funds for the arts programs in Carle Place. This year, our students were so moved by the tragedy that hit us all and Freeport in specific, that the students lobbied to share part of our fundraising efforts with the students at Giblyn Elementary School.
On the behalf of co-presidents of the Arts and Education Booster Club of Carle Place, Cindy Murphy and Cyndi Pisacone, I am proud to present the Giblyn Elementary School with a check for $1,126 to be used to help replenish supplies lost at Giblyn Elementary as a result of Super Storm Sandy.
While we know that the road to recovery is long, and our support is just a part of what you need to rebuild, we hope that you know that the Carle Place community is with Freeport in spirit, and we hope we are helping to make a difference their community.
