Currently in its 19th year, the Groundbreakers’ Celebration Gala is New Ground’s premier event raising critical funds to support Veterans and families who are caught in the vicious cycle of homelessness on Long Island.
Each year, supporters, volunteers, as well as local business and community leaders gather for a truly special evening to celebrate the accomplishments of the Veterans, adults and children participating in New Ground’s programs. The Groundbreakers’ Award is also presented to individuals who have given their time, talent and/or expertise to benefit New Ground’s vision and goals and the local community. Past honorees include Valley Bank, NYCB Family of Banks, Farrell Fritz, P.C., Thomas & Eileen Lamberti, Habitat for Humanity of Nassau County, Albanese Organization, Waldorf Risk Solutions and many others.
The Gala features a premier Silent Auction and Raffles, filled with unforgettable experiences, such as a Mexico vacation for four, weekend getaway to Vermont, dinner for ten in your home with Chef William Holden of West End Café, golf foursomes to exclusive clubs, tickets to see your favorite sports teams, and much more!
The event takes place at the Garden City Hotel and kicks off at 6:30pm with a cocktail reception, followed by an exquisite dinner and awards presentation to the honorees. Highlights include a special presentation by the Marine Corp. Color Guard and a touching performance by the 2018 Fame Show Choir National Champions, Uniondale High School Show Choir “Rhythm of the Knight.”
