Past Events

Thank you for your support of Project REACH events. 

3rd Annual REACH at the BEACH

Our 3rd Annual REACH at the BEACH event was held on July 13th, 2019. We raised over $20,000. Proceeds were shared with the Walter Hoving Home in memory of Italia Palmiotto, St Christopher’s Inn in memory of Alec Lewkowicz, and St. Anthony's Shelter

A great day was shared by guests from near and far. Over 30 families received NarCan training and the event was covered by News 12 and NBC News 4 NY

We're looking forward to another great year. Please save the date for our 4th Annual REACH at the BEACH on July 11, 2020!

2nd Annual REACH at the BEACH

Our 2nd annual REACH at the BEACH event was held on July 14th, 2018. We raised over $15,000. Proceeds were shared with St Christopher’s Inn and St. Anthony’s Shelter in memory of Andrew DiMaggio, son of Eileen and Andrew who passed away on October 14, 2017. He was 25 years old. Like James, Andrew struggled with addiction. It is our hope that his family will find peace knowing they are not alone and that Andrew will be remembered as someone who helped change the way we see addiction.

As well as being a family fun barbecue with music, volleyball, yoga, and face painting, we offered free NarCan training and families shared their stories of loss, hope and recovery.  Representatives from both facilities also shared their mission with us.

1st Annual REACH at the BEACH

Our first event, REACH at the BEACH on July 8th, 2017, was inspired by James’ love of the beach. On that day, over 300 friends and family came together at Oakland Beach, where we raised over $8,000 for the St. Anthony’s Shelter for Recovery and Renewal and St. Vincent’s Hospital in Harrison.
