Burgers & Ice Cream…All for Education

The Amityville Parent Teacher Coalition recently teamed up with neighboring Amityville businesses Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Hershey’s Ice Cream and Treats for a fundraiser. A percentage of both stores’ June 10 afternoon–evening proceeds were donated to the APTC to be used toward future programs for Amityville students. Both establishments were filled with Amityville families in support of the effort, which raised $650. Amityville Memorial High School senior Anthony Abate provided entertainment for diners, as the All-State, All-County musician performed his saxophone as a special thank you for the support the APTC and district have given him.
