Long Island Cares' 3rd Annual Concert for Children's Hunger Awareness

Press Releases

Long Island Cares and NBTY Helping Hands Announce the 3rd Annual Concert for Children's Hunger Awareness at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury.

Westbury, NY - June 24, 2014 - Long Island Cares, Inc. and NBTY Helping Hands are teaming up again to present our Third Annual Concert for Children's Hunger Awareness featuring Tom Chapin & Friends at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Tuesday, October 7, 2014.  
 
This free event is open to all Long Island school children in grades 1-4. Last year, 24 local school districts joined us at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury with 2,800 children in the audience. All of the children and their teachers received a special lesson plan prepared by Tom Chapin addressing the issue of children's hunger and good nutrition. The children also received free t-shirts, and they donated more than 4,000 pounds of food to support The Harry Chapin Food Bank.
 
As a result of the continued generosity of our corporate partners at NBTY Helping Hands, this year's concert will be just as exciting as our first two. Long Island Cares, Inc. and our sponsors will provide stipends for transportation services, t-shirts, lyrics and other support for the children and teachers to attend. The children will also receive fresh fruit and nutritious snacks after the show, courtesy of our corporate partners at Stop & Shop 
 
Once again, we expect to sell out very quickly and encourage all schools interested in attending to reserve their tickets early by emailing Claire Fratello at cfratello@licares.org or by calling (631) 582-3663 x 102. Tickets are also available to the public while they last.
