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

After a year and a half of uncertainty and challenge, when we paused, transformed, reflected, revitalized and looked to restore balance to a world turned upside-down by COVID, the arrival of Fall 2021 has brought with it a sense of anticipation that we’ve turned many corners and are fully back on track to health and positive spirit. We’ve come a long way!

Throughout this challenging time, Outreach held steadfast, resolutely dedicated to our mission and work, so vital to assuring community health and wellbeing. Our doors remained open – physically and virtually – providing unique care in a time of unprecedented need. And now, a tradition that could only occur virtually in 2020, is also back ~ Outreach’s annual metropolitan luncheon event returns live and in person!  We are thrilled to kick-off the 40th Annual “Back Together Again” Metropolitan Luncheon – a landmark occasion, celebrating our milestone 40th Metro gathering on December 2, 2021 at Cipriani – 42nd Street, 11:45 a.m.

In accordance with New York City guidelines, all guests will be required to show ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination prior to entering this event. Link here for accepted forms of documentation.

Recognizing partners who inspire

The “Back Together Again” luncheon 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 doing so in the face of two continuing crises – the COVID-19 pandemic and the opioid epidemic. This year’s gathering recognizes incredible partners whose outstanding commitment and inspiring efforts help Outreach’s communities turn tragedy into hope.

Our honorees are: Kyle Bragg, President, SEIU 32BJ; Nick G. Hayden, Senior Vice President, Hudson Yards Management, Related Companies – Hudson Yards; and Vincent Alvarez, President, NYC Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO ~ partners whose enduring commitment helps support Outreach’s lifesaving work.
