Two members of the Music & Memory Club went above and beyond for
Alzheimer patients. Paige Muroff and Tara VanBell-Florio raised money
with the help of the American Legion Auxiliary. The American Legion
holds a fundraiser every year and donates the proceeds to a designated
charity. This year Paige and Tara spoke to them about the Music &
Memory club and explained how we are trying to help Alzheimer patients
by purchasing ipods and loading them with individualized music. The
girls and their families were able to collect 60 baskets of goodies to
be raffled off at the American Legion fundraiser. At the event, Tara and
Paige sold tickets for the baskets and distributed the prizes to each
winner. As of a result of the girls hard work and dedication, they were
able to raise $600! Joan Smith, the President of Suffolk County American
Legion Auxiliary, and member Evelyn Gerlett came to Seneca to present
the check to our club. Seneca is very proud of Paige and Tara!
