ISLANDERS ASSIST PROGRAM LAUNCHED
The Musella Foundation jump starts new charity promoting initiative


The Islanders are pleased to announce the launch of their newest initiative - the Islanders Assist Program. This project is the latest initiative geared towards helping the Long Island community at large. The program is designed to give charity organizations a fun and easy way to raise money for their particular cause.

Recently, The Musella Foundation For Brain Tumor Research became the first organization sign up for the Islanders Assist Program, purchasing 200 tickets to the Oct. 6 Home Opener against the Buffalo Sabres.

Al Musella, DPM., the president and founder of The Musella Foundation For Brain Tumor Research has been an Islanders season ticket holder for ten years and felt this was a perfect opportunity to raise money for his foundation.

"I love the Islanders and over the past ten years have gone to many of their games," said Musella. "What better way is there to combine my passion for the Islanders with raising money for cancer research?"

The Islanders Assist Program works to help promote foundations through a number of mediums. Besides the profit earned from the sale of the tickets, the Islanders work diligently, leading up to and during the game to raise awareness for the foundation. Along with publicity on newyorkislanders.com, the foundation will receive placement on the Video Board during the game. In addition, the organization is reserved a table in the Nassau Coliseum concourse throughout the designated game, to help endorse their cause.

The Musella Foundation For Brain Tumor Research is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality and quantity of life for brain tumor patients by using computer technology to streamline the flow of information, organize the brain tumor community and raise money for brain tumor research.

"I was prompted to start this foundation because two relatives of mine contracted brain cancer," said Musella. "Back then, there were very few resources that cataloged treatment availability. There was no comprehensive list of treatments. Our website gives people not just a list of available treatments, but also gives them an easy way to get in contact with the best doctors. We also influence the type of research and testing done by labs to help improve treatments. With brain tumors, you have to be active because the standard treatments don't work well enough."
