Ann Asparro Run Fundraising Dinner Series

The 2021 Ann Asparro Run Fundraising Dinners were a great success! The community gathered on Tuesday, July 13th at Craft 387 Bar & Bistro and Monday, July 26th at Morrison's Restaurant to support the LIAD Center's hands-on services. The events were filled live music, life-size raffles, delicious food, and exhilarating energy. Attendees helped to create a unforgettable night, benefiting two local restaurants and a nonprofit post pandemic, and raising over $5,000 for families living with Alzheimer's and dementia!

Each year since 2016, Jay Asparro has participated in marathons, triathlons and organized runs and events to support his community. Through hard work and perseverance, he has raised over $100,000 for the LIAD Center! The 2021 Ann Asparro run will occur Saturday, October 2nd - Sunday, October 3rd. Jay Asparro will complete 100 miles starting at the Montauk Lighthouse to the LIAD Center.
