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.

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.
