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.

Marcum Challenge 2017

July 25, 2017

We are combing the elements of charity and exercise, with the addition of friends, family, and laughter to put together The Marcum WorkPlace Challenge. Taking place on July 25, 2017, Long Island will host their largest office picnic at 7 p.m., with their annual challenge. Being a quarter of the official beneficiaries, Long Island Cares encourage you to participate in the 3.5 run-walk on Jones Beach. Here's what people had to say about last year's challenge:

 "One of top priorities is increasing employee engagement here at Marchon. The Marcum Workplace Challenge is a great way for us to gather our employees in an event that fosters team building and comradery. Each year the participation increases as more and more employees talk about what a great event it is. And even better - it supports LOCAL charities."
Alison Mulcahy
Marchon Eyewear Inc.
"We are always grateful for opportunities to give back to our community, especially through fun and engaging initiatives such as this one. It was an honor for Didit to participate in this year's Marcum Workplace Challenge and support the local charities, all while getting a great workout."
Dave Pasternack
"A primary reason for our sponsorship each year is to support Marcum in bringing this event to LI. Our employees look forward to the Marcum Workplace Challenge for the camaraderie. It's a fun evening near the beach where everyone is welcome to invite their family members and significant others."
Lorraine C. Sullivan, Director of Marketing
Farrell Fritz, P.C.
We encourage you to create memories with us! What could possibly be better than running on a beach, camaraderie with fellow friends, and the challenge of completing.
