In 2014, the Long Island Elite (LIE) embarked on a new chapter in its legacy, changing the way it supports and raises funds for local charities by choosing to partner with one organization. After tremendous success, the LIE is proud to continue this role and has selected New Ground as its “2016 LIE Charity Partner of the Year.” Their Mission is to assist families and veterans in breaking the cycle of homelessness, allowing them to function independently, for generations to come. Through the remainder of 2016, members of the LIE will be raising awareness and funds for this very special cause. Its main focus will be The New Ground 25th Anniversary Gala, to be held on November 10, 2016, at the Garden City Hotel.
Founded in 1991, New Ground provides social work and education services to help families and veterans break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. Comprehensive services consist of employment counseling, financial literacy and life skills development including parenting and household maintenance, educational tutoring, reading assistance, education advocacy, tuition assistance and much more.
Since opening its doors, more than 80% of the families assisted have graduated from New Ground self-sufficient and able to afford a home of their own. New Ground empowers children, parents and veterans to achieve their goals so they can secure a brighter future.
Funds raised by LIE Gives 2016 will directly support New Ground to educate and empower families and veterans who are caught in the vicious cycle of homelessness. Working together, we can make a difference in the lives of families on Long Island. For more information, visit www.newground.org.
By supporting LIE Gives you will have a special opportunity to be invited to its 2016 Holiday Party on December 15, 2016 at the Carlyle at the Palace, which will consist of a check presentation of the funds raised to New Ground. The LIE will also present its “Member of the Year” award to an exemplary individual who personifies the values and mission of the organization. Some sponsorship levels will include tickets and recognition at The New Ground 25th Anniversary Gala that will be held at the Garden City Hotel on November 10, 2016.
