Sachem High School East students filled the gymnasium for the building’s March Madness event, bringing the school community together while raising money for the Louis J. Acompora Memorial Foundation. Sachem East’s student government, under the direction of Mr. Gallo and Mr. Jannace, worked with the officers and club members to make a fun-filled day for all grade levels. The event also promoted the importance of being a heart hero.

Students participated in basketball games and various challenges including a three-point contest and dodgeball championship. The Suffolk County Police Department even made a special appearance to play students in basketball and dodgeball to help raise money for the foundation. Ultimately, Sachem East raised $3,000 for the Louis J. Acompora Memorial Foundation. The foundation is returning the funds to the Sachem community by installing an AED station at the community field on Furrows Road.
