Just Wild About Harry Tribute Concert

Free Event

Date: July 23, 2018

Several dozen of Long Island’s top folk and rock musicians will take to the stage in Eisenhower Park on Monday, July 23 to once again fill the air with the music of Harry Chapin, the late singer, Grammy Award-winning songwriter and social activist at the annual “Just Wild About Harry” tribute concert.

The show will feature 17 acts, including concert organizer Stuart Markus and his group Gathering Time, performing some of Chapin’s classics including “Taxi” and “Cat’s in the Cradle,” plus many lesser hits and fan favorites like “Flowers Are Red” and “The Rock.” Concertgoers are asked to bring donations of nonperishable food to support Long Island Cares, Inc., the regional food bank and humanitarian organization founded by Harry Chapin in 1980. “The annual Harry Chapin Tribute Concert in Eisenhower Park is always a very special event for all of us at Long Island Cares because so many of Harry’s fans attend and are extremely supportive of Long Island Cares and the work we do to assist the more than 316,000 Long Islanders struggling with domestic hunger and high food insecurity,” said Paule Pachter, Chief Executive Officer.  “It’s hard to believe it’s 37 years since Harry’s untimely passing, and Stuart Markus and the other talented performers featured have been keeping Harry’s musical legacy very much alive on Long Island for so many years.”

Besides Markus and Gathering Time, this year’s roster of performers includes newcomers Toby Tobias, Robinson Treacher, and Mike Barry; as well as veterans Frank Walker & Robin Eve, Grand Folk Railroad, Friends on the Journey, Robin Greenstein, Sid Cherry & Helene Schreier Pandal, Patricia Shih, MediaCrime, Karen Bella, Christine Solimeno, Jerry DeMeo, Debra Lynne & Melanie Fink, and Joe Iadanza. “I’m always very happy to be able to bring in some new talent I’ve had my eye on the past couple of years, and to welcome back people who have been in and out over the years,” Markus said.

Long Island Cares’ staff and volunteers will be collecting donations of non-perishable food at the Long Island Cares’ tent at the entrance to The Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre and also selling t-shirts, Harry Chapin CD’s and distributing literature about the organizations’ programs and services.  The program begins at 7:30 pm and is free and open to the public.  It will be held rain or shine, precluded only by thunderstorms.

Sebonack Golf Outing

Free Event

Date: October 16, 2018

Situated on 300 acres in Southampton, NY, and neighboring the historic National Golf Links of America and Shinnecock Hills Golf Course, Sebonack has been carved out of land which seems to have been long-destined to become a golf course.

Sebonack features holes that offer panoramic views of Long Island’s Great Peconic Bay and Cold Spring Pond. The visual impact of the water vistas competes for the golfer’s eye with the rolling fairways, expansive bunkers and waste dunes, and undulating greens that present tricky swales and burrows. Meant to look as if manicured by time, Sebonack appears to have fashioned itself from the wild terrain.

Jack Nicklaus and Tom Doak, two designers with dramatically different styles, have used the natural contours and features of the land to create a unique look. The result is that Sebonack looks quite different from its illustrious neighbors and provides a strong golfing challenge for players of all calibers.
