Adopt a Family for
the 2009 Holidays!
Our most heartfelt thank you to all those care and gave

Holidays, providing toys, clothing, baby care supplies
and gift cards to families in need.
Community Service Club in the William T. Rogers Middle
School under the leadership of faculty advisors Jackie
White and Nicole Malone raised over $600 for the
families. All the people of Kings Park are inspired by
the caring and commitment of our students.

Smithtown to benefit two local families who have recently
experienced tragic loss and hardship as a result of an auto
Event organizers Joe Mango and Mark Bailey explained how the event
came together; “We wanted to do something different for our
Thanksgiving fundraiser. That is when Paul Snead stepped up! Paul is
a 2008 ESPN World Series of Poker Finalist and he enthusiastically
agreed to be our special quest. "If it wasn't for Paul, I don't
think we would have been successful. He gave his time, his money and

“I wore my lucky Jets shirt, I don’t think it’s working for me, or
the Jets”, Paul jokingly said with a smile. “Everyone is a winner
here today, as soon as you walk in the door. Hopefully each year
this event will grow and help us to help our community, one person
at a time. That is the mission of the Angels Without Faces
Lesson #1: If someone says that they have never played before, be
prepared to lose your chips to them; explained Mark Bailey pointing
in the direction of a grinning Joe Mango, pictured above. Mark went
on to say that the event was a wonderful success and that it’s
because of all the hard work of the volunteers and sponsors.
“The Elks Lodge, is a wonderful venue, it’s a modern building,
plenty of parking, easy to get to and the open floor plan gave us
plenty of options to setup our tournament.” Mr. Bailey mentioned.
“What we didn’t expect to receive donations from them! When the
members of the Elks Lodge stopped by and gave us several quite
generous donations…well just another reminder that we live in the
best community on earth.”
