LICADD Teams Up with California Pizza Kitchen for Two Flavorful FUNdraising Days
(Long Island, NY) The Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (LICADD) is pleased to announce a new partnership with California Pizza Kitchen (CPK). On two great days in June, California Pizza Kitchen is offering a chance to support LICADD’s life-saving alcohol and drug prevention education and addiction support programs for children and families across Long Island. Dine-in, take-out or cater a meal from CPK, and 20% of your check will be donated to LICADD when you present the flyer to your server. On Thursday June 20, California Pizza Kitchen at Walt Whitman, Westbury and Smith Haven Mall will be offering a chance to support LICADD all day long while enjoying delicious pizzas, pasta, salads and desserts. A week later, on Thursday, June 27, the Walt Whitman and Westbury locations will be offering another opportunity to present the flyer and support LICADD with 20% of your bill.
2013 marks the 57th year of LICADD, and the expansion of many of the agency’s core prevention and early intervention programs including its Student Assistance Program (SAP), BUDDY Mentoring, and Start 2Stop. LICADD’s resources not only support individuals dealing with addiction and recovery but address the broad range of issues that friends and loved ones often experience. From sibling and grief and loss support groups, to family education and anger management programs, LICADD offers a comprehensive list of resources from its three offices in Mineola, Ronkonkoma and Riverhead, NY and runs a 24-hour crisis hotline.
