2020 LIVE UNITED Celebration Luncheon

Rescheduled for Wednesday, October 14, 2020

​With growing concerns of the health and safety of our supporters, as well as the recent statewide ban to eliminate large-scale events, the LIVE UNITED Celebration Luncheon has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 14, 2020.

While we are taking these precautionary measures, this change of date will ensure that we properly highlight the collaboration of Long Island businesses, labor and individuals in support of helping our neighbors.
United Way is ready with a network of services and will identify and respond to the needs of the people who are impacted. This is more the reason why it is so critical that we achieve our goal.
Please support us as we continue to fundraise leading up to our event. Now is more important than ever.

Wednesday, October 14, 2020
11:30am - 2:00pm
Crest Hollow Country Club, Woodbury, NY

We were founded upon the understanding that no challenge can be tackled alone. It takes collaboration, innovation, determination and community. That’s why, over the years, we’ve grown to expand our network of community partners and programs to help us create change…right here on Long Island. For five and a half decades, United Way of Long Island, along with our community partners, has been advancing the common good and creating opportunities for a better life for all.
Celebrate with us to re-discover how we’ve helped Long Islanders for 55 years and counting. Be part of the change.
