Long Island Experience

Join us on October 25, 2020


We had over 700 people join us for our Drive In experience.  Thank you for your support!  For those who were unable to attend, and for those who would like to view the video presentation, click here.

We will continue our fundraising efforts for this event through the end of the year, be sure to reach out to family and friends who may not have had a chance to support your team so far and let them know they can still support you.  Share photos, and share the video with them, its a great way for them to learn about what AFSP does.   

And Be sure to join us on November 7th for HOPE ROCKS, the live radio-thon hosted by 94.3 The Shark.

Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Long Island Experience


Until we meet again, we wanted you to be able to share your stories so we created a Memorial Wall/Why Wall for you to share pictures and stories of your loved ones.   We encourage you to share your story and tell us your why.
