Supporters gathered to attend the 1st Annual Shamrock Shindig to benefit addny.org.
 
Guests enjoyed an evening of Irish charm with a mix of marine life.  The event was  planned as Aid to the Developmentally Disabled (ADD)  for its 1st Annual Shamrock Shindig on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead. The fundraiser included hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, an Irish buffet and private access to the spectacular aquarium. The night was filled with fun and humor as guests were treated to comedy entertainment, as well as witness one ADD Executive or Manager being lowered into the aquarium’s 120,000-gallon Lost City tank for a nose-to-nose swim with the sharks.
 
Aid to the Developmentally Disabled is a nonprofit organization that was established in 1980 by family members who were concerned about the physical and emotional decline of patients compelled to live in crowded institutions. These family members believed that appropriate treatment and training in a warm, sheltered, homelike environment would enhance their physical and emotional growth. With the support, funding and licensing of New York State’s Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (OMRDD) and the Office of Mental Health (OMH), Aid to the Developmentally Disabled came to life.
 
In March of 1984 we opened our first residential program in the hamlet of Northville, in Riverhead Long Island. As a result of the initial success, ADD rapidly grew into a multi-service organization providing residential programs, supported apartments, clinical supports and case management services for the mentally retarded, mentally ill and dual diagnosed adults. Aid to the Developmentally Disabled presently operates thirty residential programs in locations throughout the North and South Forks of Eastern Long Island, with several additional programs in the planning stages.
 
Their team is the bread and butter of their existence — without them, they simply could not do what they do. At Aid to the Developmentally Disabled, they feel grateful to work in such a rewarding environment. From their shift supervisors, to house managers, to administrative staff — they are one big family.

They also have partnered with the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park, New York as their volunteers created a Valentine’s Day Luncheon Event for its members and family members.
 
Contributors to this year's silent auction and rafflesincluded: Say La Vie; Cold Spring Harbor, The Wine Shoppe; Cold Spring Harbor, The Paramount, Huntington, Messina Market, La Piele Spa,Papillon Hair, Abby Sheeline Photography, Gold Nails; Huntington, a NYC helicopter ride by The Blainey Family, a round of golf at The Creek Club by the Foster Family, a flat screen TV by Mittleman Brother’s LLC, SB Love Rocks, a car service gift card by the Telese Family, Gourmet Gift Baskets by Book About Food, Lilly Pulitzer, Heather Blond Fashion, Hewlett Packard, The Cleaning Girls, Hunter Mountain Weekend Stay, Red Door Spa to name a few!
 
The Junior League of Long Island was formed in 1962.  Since its foundation, the Junior League of Long Island has been at the forefront of identifying and fulfilling community needs. The Junior League has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live. Junior League members, reflecting a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and professional pursuits work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions, and work for change. Time and time again, the Junior League is among the first organizations to step up to the plate and tackle a community’s biggest challenges.
 
The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc., http://www.ajli.orga network of 292 individual Junior Leagues in four countries, has committed itself to, “reaching out to women of all races, religions and national origins who share an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.”  Founded in 1901 by social activism pioneer Mary Harriman, the Junior Leagues are charitable nonprofit organizations of women, developed as civic leaders, making a demonstrable impact on their communities.
 
True to their legacy, today’s members are at the forefront of tackling society’s toughest and most critical issues—childhood nutrition and obesity, human trafficking, foster care, juvenile justice, teen self-esteem, cybercrimes, literacy and the environment, among others—for the purpose of enhancing the social, cultural and political fabric of our civil society.
 

Together their 155,000 members in the U.S., the U.K., Mexico and Canada constitute one of the largest, most effective volunteer organizations in the world.

Board members and supporters attended the 2nd Anniversary of the North Shore Historical Museum on January 31, 2015.
 
The year 2007 celebrated the centennial of their home, the Justices Court Building in Glen Cove. Sterling Glen of Glen Cove has donated this historic building to the North Shore Historical Museum and the exterior renovation of the building has begun. The Courthouse, built in 1907, is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places and is the ideal permanent home for the North Shore Historical Museum. Their plans are to fully restore this building, which has been vacant for over 10 years, and to preserve a piece of North Shore history for the future.
 
With a well-deserved thank you to NSHM President Brian Mercadante for 15 years of leadership, the Museum welcomed members, friends, supporters and dignitaries to celebrate two years since their opening in January 2013. Board Member Victoria Crosby composed and recited a poem in honor of the Brian's service.
 
In 1997 Brian Mercadante had an epiphany,
a brilliant idea, a concept most thrilling.
So he went to the Mayor to ask if he was willing to allow him to create a museum in the crumbling old courthouse which was an eye sore, and nobody used it anymore. Brian was VP of the BID at the time, and he thought that to demolish the historic courthouse would be a crime.  The building had been neglected and was in a terrible state, but with Brian’s vision, it was not too late to preserve and restore to its original glory, yet how to raise the money was another story.
 
With members of the BID a board was created.
From New York State a charter was obtained,
now all that remained was the grant writing and fund raising.
 
How it was accomplished is really quite amazing.  With an evolving board and many fundraising events under Brian’s leadership there were many accomplishments.
 
Now after all these years of hard work the museum finally opened two years ago, and so board members congratulate him for all his years of dedication.
 
President - Georgie Connett is now the new President of the North Shore Historical Museum.  Georgie started  on February 1, 2014.

There was also a performance by music composer Robert Frankenberg called "Symphony of Oblivion" and a DJ spinning until midnight.
 
On Saturday January 17th, the event begans at 10am with all sorts of vendors in the Main Ball Room and this room is open from 10am until 8pm. There were 4 separate conference rooms which was converted into screening rooms from 10am until midnight in each. These rooms were the: Diplomat, Amphitheater, Brookhaven, & Huntington. There were 2 separate panel rooms which were the: Regency & Hampton.

On Sunday January 18th, the event began at 10am and runs until 5pm at which time the vendor floor closed and all screening rooms were closed as well. There was an award ceremony from 5pm to 6pm for the filmmakers that were chosen for the Macabre Faire Film Festival Winter 2015.

Songs like “Baby Hold On,” “Take Me Home Tonight” and “Shakin” catapult you back to the wild resolution of an era gone by while at the same time you root for Eddie to succeed in a business that changes as quickly as the seasons. The play also boasts an exciting array of Broadway dancers that move the story that enhance the story.

The play features Eddie narrating throughout the story and showcases Eddie’s longtime touring band which includes: guitarist, Benito Dibartoli; bassist Lee Beverly; drummer Glenn Symmonds; and on Keyboards, Chris Grove (formerly of Survivor).

Eddie’s signature raspy husky voice brings the story to life; enhancing the characters while showcasing the softer side of Eddie Money as well as his classic hits. Jump back in time with The Money Man and you too can live the dream and regain the naivety we all emitted we were young… when we thought anything was possible!!!

the show will be running from January 16th through the 25th.
