42nd Annual Metropolitan Luncheon
‘Building Stronger Communities Together’

The annual Metropolitan Luncheon is Outreach’s largest fundraising event of the year, where we celebrate the people and programs that help make a difference in the lives of fellow New Yorkers struggling with addiction, substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.
