Sullivan Foundation Event Draws Over 200

The Pearl River Saloon was the location for the Second Annual Carolyn Sullivan Memorial Foundation Get-Together

Over two hundred people showed up for the Second Annual Carolyn Sullivan Memorial Foundation Get-Together Friday at The Saloon in Pearl River.

The event drew a similar crowd a year ago, when the foundation was holding its first event.

"Our get-together was a huge success," said Jeanne Sullivan.  Again this year we packed The Saloon with over 200 attendees. We saw supporters come in and out throughout the evening, many coming before and after hockey and basketball games.  Everyone had a great time catching up with friends and neighbors.

"The Saloon was a very gracious host again this year offering drink specials and complimentary hors d'oeuvres, as well as a very generous donation to our foundation."

Sullivan said the event included a raffle with the grand prize being two tickets to Jersey Boys and a night at the Loews Regency Hotel in midtown. Chris McGee of Pearl River took that one home.

The foundation was created in the memory of Carolyn Sullivan of Pearl River, an eight-year-old who passed away in 2009 due to a brain tumor, and exists to provide support for families of children with catastrophic illnesses.

"We were once again moved by the support and generosity of our community," Jeanne Sullivan.

The Clarkstown North girls basketball team is raising money for the foundation this season in honor of former coach John Sullivan, Carolyn's grandfather, who passed away in February.
