Vallone Jr. attended a telethon held to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, hosted by the Flushing Lions Club and New York TelePrensa, at LaBoom Night Club in Woodside. Approximately $1,500 was raised during the telethon, and the Flushing Lions Club and New York TelePrensa also united to collect enough supplies for roughly 2,000 victims of the hurricane. Vallone, who attended the event directly after taking a tour of the Rockaways on his motorcycle, described the devastation he witnessed and encouraged those in attendance to continue to donate to the relief efforts.
