On February 16th HLF Young Ambassador Madalyn Burhart hosted her independent service project at the Port Jefferson ice rink. Her ice skating fundraiser raised a total of $2300 which she has chosen to donate to HLF community partner New York Presbyterian Children’s Hospitals. Madalyn sold tickets to the event during lunch periods at her school and across social media. She also sold raffle tickets for baskets, gift certificates and donated items from HLF.

“This experience was extremely rewarding and a lot of Children will ​​benefit from this event. I am so grateful for all the support and compassion that people have shown for children in need.​”, said Madalyn Burhart, HLF Young Ambassador from the 2017/18 class.
