Volleyball XXVI, The Michelle O'Neill Foundation to Benefit Children with Cancer and Special Needs, Laurelton Beach, Long Beach NY

Dear Foundation Family,

We, at The Michelle O’Neill Foundation, are very pleased and excited to announce Volleyball XXVI scheduled for Saturday, September 10, 2022 on Laurelton Beach, Long Beach, NY. We will continue to benefit children with cancer and special needs, as well as support the organizations that serve them, such as Make-A-Wish Foundation, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, MSK for Kids, Ronald McDonald House of LI, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Big Sky Kids Camp, St. Jude's and American Cancer Society.

We experienced an amazingly successful “quarter of a century” celebration at Volleyball XXV last year, raising approximately $250,000 as a result of the volleyball games, raffle of amazing prizes, 50/50 raffle, and merchandise sales. It was particularly memorable as we were also honoring those lost on 9/11/01. I believe we were all gathered together in a spirit of gratitude, knowing that we were helping others and respecting life. We were especially honored when we had a flyover of Army helicopters (see video herewith). Players and spectators literally stopped playing, eating, conversing -- whatever they were doing -- and waved, receiving waves in return. We were also blessed to have several of the “kids” we’ve been able to assist -- Vincent, Payton, Paige, Natalie, Layla and Amanda -- come to enjoy the event and witness firsthand how we raise our funds to help them. We certainly couldn’t do it without all of you!

We are offering 4 sponsorship opportunities for this year's annual fundraiser:

  1.  T-shirt sponsor - donation $2,500 - your logo is imprinted on 2,500+ t-shirts/tank tops;
  2. Court marker sponsor - donation $750 - 2' X 6' banner imprinted double sided with your logo and displayed around center courts;
  3. Friends of the Foundation net banner sponsor  - donation $150 - 18" X 36" banner imprinted with green lettering and displayed on the boardwalk in front of our nets; and
  4. Prize/gift certificate donation for our raffle held on beach mid to late afternoon
If you want to help us help the “kids,” please save the date of 9/10/22 (rain date 9/11/22) and join us. For more information, please email info@monfoundation.org. If you cannot participate in person, or you just want to donate, you can visit us at www.monfoundation.org. On behalf of my family and the children and families we help, I thank you.


With gratitude,
