What's happening

There's always something going on at Life's WORC for individuals with developmental disabilities and autism—and the families who love them.

NEW VENUE: Chefs of Long Island – Sold Out!

Attention Guests: Due to the overwhelming response, Chefs of Long Island is moving to The Carltun at Eisenhower Park to allow our vendors more space to prepare and present their signature dishes while affording our guests more room to walk and sample the dishes from Long Island’s best restaurants. Please note that, although we are moving to The Carltun, the event remains SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets and sponsorships for this incredible event.

If you missed out, check back for updates on next year’s event, and be sure to buy your tickets early!
