26th Annual Long Island Event
September 24, 2020
A tradition since 1995, every Spring, Outreach’s Long Island Luncheon brought us together to recognize, honor, and celebrate our colleagues and partners in the Long Island business, labor and trade communities whose enduring commitment helps support Outreach’s lifesaving work in building healthy lives. 2020 would have marked our 26th Annual Long Island Luncheon event. Though the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to gather in person, Outreach’s work continues and is more important than ever. On September 24, 2020, we will host our very first ‘virtual’ “Rebuilding Healthy Long Island Lives – Hope and Courage” event and invite your support.

6th Annual 5K Walk
Saturday, September 12, 2020
Jones Beach

The John Brower Jr. Foundation holds this annual 5K Walk in memory of John, a young man who tragically lost his life to opiate addiction at the age of 25. The family-friendly walk builds awareness about the opioid epidemic. All funds raised from the event benefit Outreach’s life-saving drug and alcohol treatment services.

39th Annual Metropolitan Luncheon
December 2020
An annual tradition since 1982, Outreach celebrates the accomplishments of our clients and families, and recognizes distinguished members of the New York metropolitan area business, labor, and trade communities who have made a commitment to helping us build healthy lives. Our biggest fundraiser of the year, we dedicate the ‘Person of the Year,’ ‘Labor Leader of the Year,’ and the prestigious ‘Jim Berg Memorial Award’ to our honorees. Owing to the COVID pandemic, the 2020 event will take place on a different platform. Stay tuned.
