Eleven Babylon Memorial Grade School student-musicians recently raised more than $1,000 for Long Island Cares – The Harry Chapin Food Bank, after a monthlong participation in the Harry Chapin Practice-A-Thon. The fundraiser supported New York State local food banks and helped students improve their practice habits. 

Student participants included Jack Carnese, Katie Channing, Jamisyn Cerny, Michael Garret, Olivia Gavin, Cory Keith, Sara Mandell, Alison Maurino, Marena Onishi, Krittika Pal and Dilan Vergano. They 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.
