Events

Eastern Long Island Hospital welcomes you to attend or participate in one or more of our fundraising events throughout the year. These events are a fun way to connect with others while supporting a cause you believe in. The gift of good health is one we all can cherish.

When you attend an event, you have an opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow supporters of Eastern Long Island Hospital. Proceeds from Eastern Long Island Hospital’s main events have a big impact on the care our patients receive.

Golf Classic - This annual event takes place in June at the beautiful private golf club overlooking Gardiner’s Bay. Gardiner’s Bay Country Club is a par 70 private golf course, located on Shelter Island with scenic water views. Highlights of the event include a full day of golf with tournament prizes, breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner. Sponsorship opportunities offer signage on the course, media recognition, pre and post event advertising and cocktail reception tickets. Event sponsorship does much more than create an event to be remembered. Sponsorship builds the margin of excellence and joins others in a common goal … the health of the community, and the health of your community hospital. For more information about the Golf Classic or sponsorship, please contact Linda Sweeney, Executive Director, Foundation/Community Relations by phone, 631.477.5164 or email, linda.sweeney@elih.org .

ELIH Gala - Thanks to the many hosts who have provided beautiful outdoor spaces for Eastern Long Island Hospital’s Annual Summer Gala, no two Galas are ever quite the same. Held each year on the second Saturday in August since 2001, this event has grown in popularity and is attended by more than 450 guests under an expansive tent. Guests enjoy a festive cocktail party atmosphere with sumptuous local cuisine that includes flavorful hors d’oeuvres , signature drinks, a full course dinner and dessert. Opportunities to bid on fabulous luxury prizes are available throughout the evening, and include vacation getaways, private sail excursions, restaurant experiences, theater tickets, spa packages and more. Sponsorship opportunities offer special recognition at the event and premiere seating.
