"It's pretty cool to raise money to help others less fortunate than us", said 13-year-old Noah Horak, who founded Home Runs for Charity (HR4C). "In two years we have raised about $5,000- that's incredible. Our donors are awesome, but so are our players."
HR4C, a Sayville not-for-profit organization that supports local charitable foundations, recently presented checks to the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, Brookhaven Hospital's Cardiac Unit, Long Island Cares
and the Neighborhood House.
For the second year in a row, donors pledged a contribution for each home run hit by a Sayville Little League player during the season. This year, 22 players hit a total of 44 home runs, which resulted in approximately $3,500 in donations.
"As a volunteer for the Ronald McDonald House of LI, I was honored to accept the generous check from the Home Runs for Charity (HR4C) to support the good works of the Ronald McDonald House of LI," expressed Shelly Psaris. "As I looked around at all the children from the Sayville Little League I thought about their efforts to make a difference in the world and it touched me deeply."

Horak and HR4C are already looking ahead to next year. "We look forward to working with HR4C once again in the 2015 season," said Bill Sukow, President of the Sayville Little League. "The Little League experience is so much more when the kids have an opportunity to give back."
