23rd Annual Long Island Cares Golf Classic

May 7, 2019

Join us Tuesday, May 7, 2019 for a round of golf at The Meadow Brook Club in Jericho, New York

About the Meadow Book Club:

The Meadow Brook Golf Club is a sprawling course with a rich history embedded in Nassau County. It originated as the Meadow Brook Hunt Club, established in 1881 in Westbury, New York and home of the Meadow Brook Hounds. The hunt club had its headquarters in Westbury, but convened in different rural parts of Nassau County where the hounds and horses could run free. Future President Theodore Roosevelt was a member of the hunt club, which met at his home in Oyster Bay in 1886. The members sometimes hunted foxes, but often drag hunted, where the hounds followed a trail of anise scent.

The Hunt Club gave birth to the Meadowbrook Polo Club, and later extended to a nine-hole golf course, built in 1894. A new site for an 18-hole golf course in Jericho, New York was selected in October 1953 by Dick Wilson, the architect of the course. Today, the course sits on a meadow where each green feels like a breath of fresh air. Every hump and hollow, every rise and fall, every valley and peak feels like a joy to discover and traverse across. In short, if you have not yet experienced the delight of the Meadow Brook Golf Course, you'll want to add this one to your list and support a positive cause while you play.

Suffolk AME’s May Day MAYDAY Festival

May 11, 2019

As New York State’s largest independent labor union, the Suffolk Association of Municipal Employees is organizing the May Day “Mayday” Festival in the spirit of singer activists like Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger and modern rock artists who have carried on their tradition, successfully capturing the voice of the working class hero.

The May Day “Mayday” Festival is being organized to raise awareness of the issues facing working people today and to promote solidarity not only across labor unions but between all people who work to provide for their families. Considering this purpose, we are proud to have the support and partnership of our brothers and sisters from the Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO.

This event is a wholly non-profit endeavor open to the general public, with all net proceeds going to fund charitable causes—from scholarships for union members and their families, to promoting union organizing and activism, to putting food on our neighbors’ tables by supporting Long Island Cares: The Harry Chapin Food Bank.

We are your friends, family members, and neighbors. Come join us for a great day of live music, award winning craft beer, local Long Island wine, and a multitude of diverse food truck options all amidst the bucolic scenery of Suffolk County’s Southaven Park.
