A yearly fundraising tradition at Bay Ridge Catholic Academy in Brooklyn has earned ‘double the dimes’ of previous years to help the tiniest among us.

The Catholic Academy raised more than $1,600 dollars for the March of Dimes New York, which assists new mothers and families in taking care of babies born premature. 

The fifth annual “Dress Down Donation Day” and newly added cookie sale was held in support of one of their classmates who was born premature and received help from the March of Dimes. The event was held on World Prematurity Day.
