Coney Island community raises money for Hurricane Harvey victims

Posted: Updated:
CONEY ISLAND -

The Brooklyn Cyclones and businesses in Coney Island are doing their part to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

All of the proceeds raised from Thursday night's Cyclones game will go to relief efforts. Coney Island Brewery, Gargiulos, Nathan's Famous and others are also donating money raised on Saturday to Hurricane Harvey victims.

Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park and Luna Park will also donate a portion of their earnings to Harvey relief funds.

Those in the community say they learned how every little bit helped during Superstorm Sandy five years ago.
