Rise on the Vine, a fundraising event hosted by Lisa and Fred Giachetti and Del Vino Vineyards, supported RISE Life Services, a Long Island based nonprofit organization.
For more than 35 years, RISE Life Services has worked tirelessly to provide individuals with special needs, United States Military veterans, and others coping with significant and compromising physical and/or emotional issues, with professional support. RISE’s services include residential housing, day programs, a mental health clinic, food pantries, a sensory garden, and a growing art therapy program.
The funds raised at Rise on the Vine will go to support RISE’s ongoing efforts and its expansion into the Huntington vicinity, including RISE’s collaboration with the Suffolk County VA that will include an outpatient clinic and job program. The event raised more than $50,000 for the Huntington Cultural Center, one of RISE’s initiatives.
