KMAD Productions presents The Long island FunkFest, a nonprofit, nonstop, 9 hour music festival consisting of four bands, 3 solo artists, raffles for gift cards and gift baskets, a 50/50, and food and t-shirts for sale. The event is set up to benefit two outstanding charities that have been assisting our communities for years, and many more to come. Answer The Call assists the widows and children of deceased NYPD, FDNY, EMS, and Port Authority Police officers who have died in the line of duty. Island Harvest is responsible for feeding over 550,000 families here in Nassau and Suffolk counties alone. I lost my father at a young age, and he was an arson explosion detective on the NYPD who died in the line of duty. We have been a part of Answer The Call since they were formed more than 35 years ago. I also had the opportunity to tour Island Harvest's new facility, and to learn about their other programs including their work training program and nutrition program. They do so much more than just feeding so many needy families. Both beneficiaries sit very close to my heart. This event gives us the opportunity to celebrate life, dance and sing the day away, and celebrate some incredible, locally talented musician, all while giving back to these two amazing charities.
Come celebrate with us and help make this event a tremendous success. It is never too late to Answer the Call!
