Attend an Event

For a Long Island event that makes a difference, attend one of these fundraisers in support of Long Island Cares – The Harry Chapin Food Bank, one of our region’s most comprehensive hunger assistance organizations. Since our organization was founded by the late singer, Grammy Award-winning songwriter and social activist Harry Chapin, music is part of our operations – and fundraising efforts – so check back here often to see who’s bringing their talents to benefit Long Islanders experiencing hunger, poverty or food insecurity.

The 2018 Harry Chapin Practice-A-Thon

March 1, 2018

During the month of March, music students across New York State are invited to take part in the Harry Chapin Practice-A-Thon with all proceeds going to local food banks. The Practice-a-Thon is a wonderful way to strengthen students’ practice habits while encouraging empathy and empowering them to make a difference in their community. Locally, our Practice-A-Thon proceeds will be going to Long Island Cares, Inc. - The Harry Chapin Food Bank. Last year, over 50 schools participated in the NYS Practice-A-Thon and together we raised over $25,000.
