In the spirit of giving, East Islip High School’s boys and girls bowling teams, and coaches Harold Cooley and Judith Fischer, decided to help North Babylon bowling coach Sonny Casale, who recently lost his home to a house fire several weeks ago.
EI’s bowling community hosted a fundraising event on Dec. 8 at East Islip Lanes which included bowling and a large basket raffle. The two local teams donated a gift basket with $100 worth of scratch-off lottery tickets, which was raffled off as one of the grand prizes and collected $400 in donations from students for a gift card for Casale, which was presented to him by East Islip team captains Natalie Mavrich and Sonny Pico.
“Coach Cooley and I are very proud of how the kids eagerly responded to help another coach and give so generously of their time and money,” said Fischer.
