According to Harry D'Agostino, a CYC board trustee, the youth center has been seeking other means of funding to support the programs and services it offers.
"We're seeking all we can to continue the programs and pay for the facility," he said. "This will go towards helping that shortfall."
D'Agostino labeled the contribution a "wonderful Christmas present, if you will" and said that Cammarota would have been proud of where the money went.
"His heart was as big as his body," D'Agostino said of Cammarota. "I know that if he were alive, this would have been a cause that he was supporting."
