The Long Island Claims Association began an initiative last year to select a charities who are providing benefits to local Long Island and/or New York residents. We began this effort with our successful 2019 Summer Charity Social. This year we decided to be a little more aggressive. Instead of one single event, we are embarking on a three month long fundraising campaign that will kick off at our Winter Social and conclude at our Summer Charity Social in June.
This year we are proud to partner with the MARTY LYONS FOUNDATION. The Marty Lyons Foundation was established in 1982 to fulfill the wishes of children ages three (3) to seventeen (17) who have been diagnosed with a terminal or life threatening illness. Our goal in 2020 is to help them achieve the fulfillment of one of those wishes. They grant wishes today, for a better tomorrow.
if we reach our goal - we will fulfill the wish of Larry Rivery of Oakdale, NY. funds raised would enable the foundation to make his wish come true and send him and his family to tour 343 industries and meet the creators of halo.
