Three cheers to the members of the Kings Plaza Canarsie Kiwanis Club for raising more than $10,000 to fund the food and formula pantry at Mt. Sinai Medical Center’s Metabolic Unit in Manhattan.
It was all spares, strikes, and turkeys at Funfest Bowling Alley in Mill Basin on May 7, when the group hosted the fab fund-raiser. Prizes were awarded to the top three bowlers and included a new laptop, a mini-iPad Pro, and a pair of Beats headphones.
TD Bank and PC Richards, both on Flatbush Avenue, donated the cash to buy the prizes.
Kathy Marcario, club secretary, explained, “We became aware of the need to stock the center’s formula closet through a member.”
The Metabolic Genetics Faculty Practice at Mount Sinai Health System specializes in providing advanced clinical and diagnostic services for the treatment of children and adults affected by inborn errors of metabolism.
The club, whose motto is, “Helping Children of the World,” has been giving to the community for more than 40 years.
Standing O says, “Thank you, and may you continue your good works.”
Members meet on Wednesdays at Maria’s Restaurant (3073 Emmons Ave. between Batchelder and Brown streets in Sheepshead Bay). Those interested in information about becoming a member or who wish to donate may contact Kathy at (917) 365–5403.
