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.
