“This Christmas in July event was so much fun,” said John Cronin, Co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks. 

A Fun Event for the Community 

The event brought together nearly two dozen organizations to offer fun and games including music, a snowball toss, cookie decorating and pictures with Santa in his summer Hawaiian shirt. Attendees ate hot dogs from Diesel Dogs, ice cream from Mister Softee and enjoyed refreshments from Sweetwater’s.

There were presentations by Community Care Home Health Services, Day Haven, and John’s Crazy Socks. John and his co-founder and father, Mark X. Cronin, gave an inspiring talk on overcoming obstacles and shared how John’s Crazy Socks does so much more than offering more socks that any other sock store in the world, as they provide employment for people with differing abilities and have a generous Giving Back program that has raised over $625,000 for charity partners. The Nassau Suffolk Chapter of the Autism Society of America (NSASA) is one of their charity partners.
