YONKERS, N.Y. - The Yonkers Police Athletic League and the "A Prayer 4 Alex Foundation" are hosting a Bingo Fundraiser Sunday, Nov. 24 at the Yonkers PAL with all proceeds going to aid to the Philippines where a devastating storm killed thousands earlier this month.
Yonker PAL's Vic Federico said the event has special meaning to the youngsters in the PAL girls softball program, who lost a friend and teammate Alexandra Cancro to cancer earlier this year.
"Everything we bring in Sunday will go to the Philippine people," Federico said. "There is a special meaning to this, for we at the PAL are doing it jointly with "A Prayer 4 Alex Foundation". Alex's parents are from the Philippines and will send whatever we collect (cash, checks, food, clothing) to the Philippines."
The Yonkers PAL building is located at 127 North Broadway in Yonkers. for more information or to contribute to the fund, call 914-377-7381, 914-815-7552, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
