Benefit game played to help children with cancer

The Levittown North Little League held its annual benefit game Sunday afternoon at Whelan Field.

Kids of all ages played baseball to help Join A Cause For Kids (JACK), a charity that helps families with children who have cancer.

The game Sunday was in honor of Jack Perlungher, who lost his battle with cancer just shy of his sixth birthday in 2010.

Participants wore Jack's tee-ball number on their jerseys, and his best friend threw out the first pitch.

Sunday was the league's second annual benefit game to benefit the charity created in Jack's name.
