Northport's most beloved charitable event is on the horizon.
Dates have been set for the 11th Annual St. Baldrick’s events on March 8 at the Brosnan Buiding (Laurel Ave. School) and March 9 at Napper Tandy's Pub. The goal for each event is $100,000. Last year, the events raised nearly $400,00 for children's cancer research. See coverage here.
At last year's events we were introduced to 7 month old Whitney Marie Posillico of Huntington, diagnosed only a few weeks after birth with a pediatric kidney cancer. While she struggled and fought for the entire year, Whitney's love still found ways for her to smile, to laugh and to love. She won the hearts of all who were fortunate to see her and hear her.
A little after a year with us here on Earth, Whitney was called to Heaven. Another Angel watches us from above. This year, the 2013 St Baldrick's events in Northport are dedicated to our Precious Princess, Whitney Marie Poscillico.
