We’ve come a long way… and the tradition continues!

After more than a year of uncertainty and challenge, when we paused, transformed, and looked to restore balance to a world turned upside-down by COVID, the arrival of Spring 2021 has brought with it a sense of anticipation that we’ve turned the corner and are back on track to health and positive spirit.

In 2020, as celebratory events and gatherings of all kinds were postponed or cancelled during the pandemic, Outreach’s Long Island Luncheon, a Spring tradition since 1995, was creatively re-imagined and transformed to an online campaign and virtual ‘event’ that premiered in the Fall. On September 24, 2020, Outreach hosted our very first ‘virtual’ “Rebuilding Healthy Long Island Lives – Hope and Courage” event.

We’ve come a long way! And though the impact of the pandemic continues to limit social gatherings, this year Outreach’s annual Long Island campaign and event returns to Spring! It will bring us together – virtually once again – with a program that recognizes, honors, and celebrates our colleagues and partners in Long Island communities whose enduring commitment helps support Outreach’s lifesaving work. Reflecting the reality of a renewed outlook for the future, Outreach’s “27th Annual Long Island – Rebuilding Healthy Lives Hope & Promise” campaign is kicking off!

Recognizing partners who inspire “Hope & Promise”

Rebuilding Healthy Lives Hope & Promise” is a campaign that invites support for Outreach to continue to make a difference in the lives of adolescents, adults, and families who are struggling with the devastating consequences of drug and alcohol addiction, and now doing so in the face of two crises – the COVID-19 pandemic and the opioid epidemic. This year’s event will recognize incredible partners whose outstanding commitment and inspiring efforts help Long Island communities turn tragedy into hope.

Our honorees are: Matthew Aracich, President, Building & Construction Trades Council of Nassau & Suffolk Counties; Kathy Riddle, President Emeritus of Outreach – our John Brower, Jr. Memorial Award Recipient; and special tribute will go to Outreach’s extraordinary Frontline Staff Heroes, who led the way with courage into a time of promise. The campaign will culminate in a live online event premiere on Outreach’s social media platforms on June 23, 2021, at 12 noon, repeat showing at 7 p.m.

A very special thank you to our longtime partner, the John Brower Jr. Foundation, for their years of tireless effort in raising awareness and support on Long Island to confront the opioid epidemic.
