 Division Avenue High School Sophomores Alex Sorbello and Bailey Gribben won a contest and were invited by the NBC News staff to join them in the taping of their holiday sing along TV commercial .
They went to the NBC Studios and met with the President of NBC , anchors, reporters and staff and joined them by the ice rink at Rockefeller Center to tape a 60 second and a 30 second commercial that will air on NBC  throughout December.They are standing on the left side of the group- Alex is in front row , next to the lady with the green coat. Bailey is standing behind the person next to Alex. Maria, Alex's Mom , is standing next to Bailey. This was such a cool experience for them . They even got a mention on the NBC 5 o'clock news.The commercial will begin to air on NBC this weekend.

On another note , recently Alex Sorbello celebrated her Sweet 15 birthday and she generously donated $500 of her gift money to Bailey Gribben's fundraising for Children's Tumor Foundation , for which he has so far raised over $30,000 in the past 3 years to help fund research for a cure for Neurofibromatosis . This selfness act of generosity from Alex is to be admired and applauded. Bailey's ability to inspire such generosity and support from friends and family is amazing. To make a donation to help Bailey find a cure for NF go to his fundraising page www.ctf.kintera.org/r4r2013/baileygribben
