  • The Westhampton Beach High School varsity wrestling team raised money to support two organizations, the Live Your Cor and the Lustgarten foundations. Through a pin-pot fundraiser, the student-athletes collected $1,300 for the Live Your Cor Foundation, which was created in memory of Westhampton Beach wrestler Cory Hubbard. They also raised $900 for the Lustgarten Foundation, which supports pancreatic cancer research. The funds were donated in the name of Jina Tanzman, the mother of wrestlers Alex and Matt Tanzman, who died from pancreatic cancer in 2013. This is the fourth year that the team has raised money for this organization through the sale of their purple T-shirts, which adorn the initials, “JT” on the sleeve.

  • The Southampton Elks Lodge 1574 presented the Disabled American Veterans Charity (DAV) with a new van on Saturday to help transport East End veterans to appointments at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Northport. The van was dedicated to the memory of longtime Elk Peter Magnuson of Southampton. The project represents more than a year of fundraising from several charities and veteran groups with which Pete was deeply involved. During his time with the Elks, Mr. Magnuson strongly advocated for the needs of local veterans. After his passing in 2014, George Egan, Commander of American Legion Post 269 in Patchogue, and a few of Mr. Magnuson's friends decided to raise money to buy a van. The Southampton Lodge donated $1,000 to the cause and Chairman, Past State Trustee, and Past Exalted Ruler George Doering of Southampton Lodge secured donations from various sources to finance the purchase. Attending Saturday’s presentation were representatives from the seven Elks Lodges of the East District, the New York State Elks Association President, and leaders from other charitable organizations.<br/><span style='font-style:italic'>Submitted May 3</span>
