A fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, December 18 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Bounce! Trampoline Sports to raise money for the Lindsey Stewart & Mark Lennon Memorial Fund. The cost is $20 which includes one hour of jump time and pizza. The money raised will go toward the Fund’s objective of erecting a lighthouse monument to Lindsey and Mark.
While the families waited for the tireless crews to recover Lindsey and Mark from the Hudson, the Lennons and the Stewarts attended a mass led by Reverend George Torok of St. John the Baptist Church. In that sermon, Torok spoke of a lighthouse that would shine not only as a beacon to remember the victims of the tragedy but also as a guide to help prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future. The sermon inspired both families to turn their sadness and grief into something positive and hopeful.
The $20 may be paid at the door the evening of the event or a check can be sent to P.O. Box 982, Pearl River, NY 10965 and made out to Lindsey Stewart & Mark Lennon Memorial Fund. The evening is open to both children and adults to jump, ages 2 and up welcome. Activities include trampoline dodgeball, slam dunk basketball, open jump time and foam pit jumping and there is a separate section for those ages six and under.
