A Glen Cove fundraiser Saturday for at-risk kids touched by gun violence was held in memory of a teacher who was killed in the Parkland, Florida mass shooting.
The Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund organized “Buckets 4 Beigel” at North Shore Day Camp – which aims to send children to sleepaway camp.
“We are going to rid all of us of gun violence and these are the kids that are going to do it,” said Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund founder Linda Beigel Schulman, mother of Scott Beigel.
Originally from Dix Hills, Beigel was a geography teacher and cross-country coach at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.
“Buckets 4 Beigel means more today than ever before. It’s all about community. It’s all about us coming together. And it’s all about love,” Beigel Schulman said.
High schoolers from eight different camps shot hoops to raise funds.
The community also spent time remembering the two Roslyn teens who were killed in the recent DWI crash.
“Just remember... nothing is guaranteed and remember who you love. It doesn’t hurt to say that you love them because you don’t know how long you can say that for,” said Austin Reiss, of Jericho.
