Three Babylon Memorial Grade School student-musicians recently raised more than $320 for Long Island Cares – The Harry Chapin Food Bank, after participating for a month in the Harry Chapin Practice-A-Thon. The fundraiser supports New York State local food banks and improve their practice habits.

The students – fourth-grader Katie Channing, fifth-grader Talia Baker and sixth-grader Molly Higgins - marked down their daily practice schedules on their calendar, and accepted donations from sponsors based on the number of minutes that he/she practiced for the day.
