SirKevBags, who organised it, writes "I'm pleased to announce that the first hand-over of raffle fund proceeds has taken place. Forum member bmwlego was tasked with spending $600 to purchase LEGO for the Cohen Children's Medical Centre in New Hyde Park, New York.
"With hard work, savvy spending and some help from his friends at ILUGNY Brian managed to stretch the initial budget of $600 to purchase LEGO worth more than $1200. Great work Brian!
"All of the other donations will be taking place as soon as possible so check back for more updates and more pictures soon!"
