Outreach luncheon raises $200K to support addiction treatment

Outreach, a nonprofit organization providing addiction treatment services, raised $200,000 at its 30th annual Long Island Luncheon.

The event, held on Wednesday, June 5 at Stonebridge Country Club in Smithtown, was chaired by Matthew “Matty” Aracich, president of Building & Construction Trades Council of Nassau & Suffolk Counties, and featured a speech from Aaron, an Outreach graduate, who recently enlisted in the U.S. Army.

Jason Lipiec, executive vice president and Long Island regional president of M&T Bank, John Guadagno, president of IBEW Local 24, and Robyn Fellrath, Long Island regional director of the Workforce Development Institute, all received the John Brower, Jr. Award, in memory of a young man who died of an overdose and whose family has since helped Outreach raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in his name for addiction treatment services and awareness.

Later this year, Outreach will open its first residential program for transitional aged youth between the ages of 18 and 25 with a new 25-bed facility in Brentwood.To learn more about Outreach’s programs and services, visit:
