Charity Partner of the Year Initiative

In 2014, Long Island Elite started a new chapter of our legacy, changing the way we support and raise funds for local charities. We began selecting one local non-profit to be our annual charity partner each year. This initiative has been a tremendous success that has helped both our organization, and our partners succeed.
