Greetings All,

It's almost that time of year again.....on July 3rd, the LDCMF is hosting our "4th Annual" Leon D Carr Memorial Fundraiser at Beaver Island. (Please note that our event will be held near the Marina this year.) The last few years have been very successful and we are looking forward to another awesome event! This year, the LDCMF is teaming up with The Miracle League of Grand Island & WNY. 

If any of you have driven by Veterans Park on Grand Island lately, you may have noticed there is a brand new Baseball Diamond being built. The Miracle League gives Special Needs Children and Young Adults the chance to play organized Baseball. When we learned of this, we wanted to do everything possible to make it a success. All proceeds this year will benefit The Miracle League of Grand Island & WNY.  Tony Fuccillo has donated a 2011 Chevy Aveo 5 to the ML. Tickets can be purchased at this year's event for $10.  The drawing will be held on September 1st. You can find more info for the Miracle League at: :

Please join us on July 3rd and enjoy a day of Music/Drinks/Food and Fun. There will be 3 local bands including Leon and the Forklifts, Resident Alien, and Sleepless City. The Legendary "Rock" will be spinning music in-between acts. Kids are always welcome and we will hold activities for them throughout the day. 

Along with the Fundraiser, we are hosting our "4th Annual" Redbone Disc Golf Classic. You can sign up : HERE 

We appreciate all the Love and Support you all have shown over the years as well as all the donations that we have received. Without them, we would have not been able to give back to our Community. Below is a list of Organizations we have donated to in the past:
  • UNYTS (Upstate NY Transplant Services)
  • Annual ECC Leon D. Carr Scholarship 
  • Grand Island Conservation Commission
  • Buffalo Blue Bike
  • Several Local Community Fundraisers
We are looking forward to adding The Miracle League of Grand Island to the list. We are also looking forward to seeing you on July 3rd to celebrate the Life of Leon David Carr. May his Memory Be Eternal.
