First responders host amateur fight night to raise money for corrections officer battling cancer
First responders stepped into the ring Friday in Yaphank to help one of their own.
They organized an amateur fight night to raise money for 53-year-old Ralph Felice who is battling cancer.
Felice works for the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office as a corrections officer in Riverhead.
He has been out of work for over two years so his fellow officers put on boxing gloves to their support.
Their goal was to raise $25,000, but they wound up raising $30,000.
