The New Hyde Park community will be holding a fundraiser for David Eisermann, a teacher, volleyball coach and mentor at New Hyde Park Memorial High School for over 12 years.
Eisermann had the misfortune of having a virus attack his heart a few years ago which had resulted in his heart working at a deminished capacity.
He will be undergoing experimental stem therapy treatment. The community will be holding a fundraiser on Thursday night at Your Mother's House in Garden City Park from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. to defray these costs.
A Shave-A-Thon fundraiser was held in November and raised over $1,400.
Tickets for the Jan. 23 fundraiser are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and includes a light buffet and a beverage. Raffles will also be offered.
