It has always been our belief that having a festival of this size, with the amount of music lovers that will attend, is a perfect opportunity to raise awareness and support for our less fortunate.
Since our first festival, 14 years ago we have allowed no less than four organizations to set up at the fest to raise awareness and funds to help their cause. By 2019 we were hosting seven organizations in our “ Storyville Tent” to confront homelessness, drug abuse, mental health, feeding the hungry and more.
Our most passionate commitment has been to fight the worldwide menace that is cancer. Since 2007 we are proud to say that we have raised over a quarter of a million dollars with our “Stickey Finger Bike Run”. And in 2017 we started the “GSB-SB Hospital Cancer Fund”, where Great South Bay donates $1 from every ticket purchased.
We are all residents of one world!
We have all been impacted by setbacks in health or quality of life, either personally or from family or friends.
Great South Bay is proud to partner with Long Island Cares, the legendary Harry Chapin Food Bank, who’s mission is to bring together all available resources for the benefit of the hungry, and to supply emergency food where and when it is needed
Help us feed the less fortunate … it’s easy…
Bring a can of food or a non-perishable item. LI Cares will be on site to collect and distribute.
The Great South Bay Music Fest supports the endeavors of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame and invites you to visit their booth during the festival. Buy a hat, a tee-shirt or just make a donation and help support this worthy cause.
To provide safety, food, clothing, health care, education and the means for children and young adults in our care to create a productive and successful future for themselves.
To provide compassionate, comprehensive and competent care for the poor, the marginal and the wounded among us.
