Mineola High School students Isabella Gaglione and Julia Perrino collaborated with the Jackson Avenue School PTA to organize a movie night while supporting a good cause. The event raised more than $500 for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to drive research, advance care and raise awareness about neurofibromatosis (NF), a disorder that affects a Mineola student.
Gaglione and Perrino brought this passion project to life in order to connect the Jackson Avenue community while helping fight an important cause that hits close to home.
