MJM Plumbing & Mechanical Inc. will hold its 8th annual Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day Parade Party on Sunday, March 13 and will again be collecting donations for the Fortunato Breast Health Center.

James Mangan, one of the owners of MJM, lost his wife to breast cancer almost five years ago. "Before she passed away, John T. Mather Memorial Hospital cared for my wife on several occasions with professionalism and dignity," he said. "Everyone from the staff in the Emergency Department to the physicians and physician assistants, the wonderful, caring nursing staff and Environmental Services treated Marie as though she was a member of their family, and I will be forever grateful."

Last year, MJM raised more than $4,300 for the Breast Health Center. "We have doubled the donations made each year and our goal is to double it again this year," Mangan said.

MJM is located at 576 Route 25A along the parade route. The parade begins at noon in Miller Place and moves east along Route 25A to Rocky Point. Call MJM at 631-209-1845 for more information.
