FARMINGDALE -

Long Island residents and Farmingdale State College students played a charity basketball game for Alzheimer's research Sunday.

People of all ages spent the day playing for the Alzheimer's Foundation of America's 3-on-3 basketball classic.

All of the proceeds from the event will go toward research funding to help find a cure for Alzheimer's disease.

"'We're raising awareness for Alzheimer's and the kids are having fun and supporting a charity that's very important to them," says Charles Fuschillo, president and CEO of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
