Surpassing 19 years is an impressive accomplishment for any organization, let alone one that has successfully mentored and embraced hundreds of young business professionals on Long Island. That, though, is not all the Long Island Elite (LIE) has achieved over the past 19 years.
Approximately seven years ago, the LIE began to focus its philanthropic efforts by supporting one Long Island based not-for-profit organization that serves the neighborhoods we live in, work in and call home. By partnering with these organizations, we have not only helped to raise vital funds for new programs and initiatives that are needed within our communities, but we have also spread an awareness of the important work that these incredible not-for-profits do. This year, the LIE is honored to partner with SIBS Place whose mission has been to provide support and services for the healthy child in a family whose parent or sibling is suffering from a devastating illness.
Few organizations touch as many lives as SIBS Place. Most of us have been touched by someone with some type of devastating illness. SIBS Place is a free program serving well and healthy children ages 5 – 17 who are living with a sibling or parent suffering from cancer or another catastrophic illness. By selecting SIBS Place as this year’s charity partner, the LIE looks to not only support SIBS Place as an organization but to get to know and help all that they support.
Together, the LIE and SIBS Place strive to improve the quality of life for individuals and families that are dealing with these horrible illnesses. Please share in this opportunity to make a truly meaningful impact in the lives of those we know and love.
