SI School's Coaches Challenge Eighth Graders to Game, Raise Funds for Student's Medical Costs

PBA Financial Secretary for Lower Manhattan and Richmond, Al Acierno, also serves as the team coach for Staten Island’s St. Christopher’s Cougars basketball team.  New York 1 News tells the story of a coaches vs. players benefit game that Acierno organized to raise money for 17 year old Brandon Belmonte who is recovering from a severe stroke.  Brandon, who can walk again, served as the “coaches’ coach.” (The video is available to Time-Warner customers only.)
