Long Island Music Hall of Fame Announces Concert Supporting United Way of Long Island's United Together For Health Care Heroes
News 12 to Broadcast Music Event
The Long Island Music Hall of Fame (LIMHOF) is excited to announce the upcoming News 12 Concert Series Supporting Health Care Heroes Concert Presented by the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. This event is a fundraiser for United Way of Long Island’s United Together for Health Care Heroes, which will help support health care workers at this vital time.
LIMHOF and News 12 are producing this unique music event to be broadcast on Sunday May 31st at 8PM-9:30PM on News 12 Plus (Channel 61), on FIOS Channel 530 and will stream on News12 Facebook Live featuring performances and words of support from many LIMHOF Inductees including Joan Jett, Richie Cannata, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, Debbie Gibson, Kurtis Blow, Taking Back Sunday, Gary US Bonds, members of Dream Theater, the Stray Cats and many more.
The concert will benefit United Together for Health Care Heroes, an initiative of United Way of Long Island's Response Fund For COVID-19. The not-for-profit is working with local restaurants to deliver meals to responders at hospitals across Long Island. Take-home meal kits are also provided, which allow hospital staff to make dinner at home, resulting in additional family time. The initiative is the organization's way of giving back to those who are helping maintain the health and safety of the community at large. Funds raised during the Long Island Music Hall of Fame concert increase United Way of Long Island's capacity to continue delivering meals to health care heroes.
"We're pleased to be the beneficiary of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame concert proceeds,” said Theresa Regnante, President and CEO of United Way of Long Island. “Our region is struggling right now, and it is United Way’s obligation to help bring equity to vulnerable populations. Health care responders have been on the frontlines of battling COVID-19, all while putting their own lives, and those of their families, at risk. Together, with the support of the public, we can continue to nourish and give thanks to these heroes."
