Angels of Long Island planning huge hoedown June 6 in Hauppauge


Dress your country best and let the alcohol do the rest.

That’s the driving slogan behind this year’s first-ever Hoe Down fundraising event planned for Thursday, June 6, at the Simplay Indoor Golf Simulator with Multisport ballroom in Hauppauge.

DJ Beso will have you ready to saddle up and dance the night away, the organizers promise.

There will be dinner, an open bar, baskets on auction and 50/50 raffles.

It’s all to help the Angels of Long Island help your neighbors in need in the coming weeks and months ahead — especially by supporting the Angels’ new Mastic grocery store for families in need.

And where everything is free to shoppers.

“These type of services are no longer about families affected by mental health or addiction,” said Angels co-founder Debbie Loesch. “People are finding it more and more difficult to just go about their daily lives here on Long Island. We have a problem now where both mom and dad are both working and are still having trouble affording groceries and household items for their kids.”

“And our senior citizens, they’re just not making it,” she added.

OK, so now we need to help the Angels throw the best and most memorable fundraising bash on the Island, the Angels are still seeking Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Buckle sponsors.

Event sponsorships start at $500 and go to $2,000.

“It’s time to put the dough down for the Hoe Down,” the Angels say.

Simply call 631-205-3457 to see your name in bulb lights and Angels founder Debbie Loesch will explain the benefits of being a sponsor. Or simply click here to purchase tickets now.

About the new grocery

The Angels run things discreetly at their new grocer.

And don’t call it a food pantry.

“This is a free grocery store, Loesch says. “They come through with a grocery ccrt like anywhere else, and there’s a big emphasis here that no one should feel bad, ashamed or guilty to come.

“People are already feeling bad enough to even need our grocery.”

The Angels of Long Island also operate two thrift centers and community outreach centers in Mastic, adjacent to the supermarket, and in Patchogue. Shopping at the thrift store helps support all the Angels of Long Island’s efforts, including the grocery.
