A lot to be thankful for


We have a lot to be thankful for this month at Helping Makes U Happy.  

We’ve been really busy collecting food for the holidays, and so thankful for the community members, organizations, and businesses who’ve been helping us!

We’ll be partnering up with our friends at Caitlyn’s Vision (Caitlyn and Keith are pictured below) again this Thanksgiving so we can help even more people.  

We’ll also be partnering with our friends, the 7th Precinct COPE officers, so there’ll be a lot of good stuff going on!

Speaking of good stuff—Helping Makes U Happy is finally having its long-postponed Keith’s 40th Birthday Casino Nite to help us raise money to make the holidays happy for local families. The Casino Nite/Chinese auction is scheduled for Nov. 20, at the Masury Estate Ballroom, from 7-11 p.m. It’s going to be a fun night of food, drinks, fun games, and chances to win fantastic prizes. We are thrilled to be honoring three local businessmen who are always helping others, too: Spiro Nikolopoulos of Moriches Bay Diner, Mike Moore of TJ’s Heros, and Justin DeMarco of Justin’s Chop Shop. Tickets are limited and must be pre-paid, so be sure to get yours now by calling 631-848-9008. This is a 21-and-over event, and carpooling is suggested if possible.

Lastly, we’ll be putting together the final arrangements for our HMUH Craft Night at Moriches Field Brewing Co. on Dec. 1 from 7-9:30 p.m.  Join us for a fun jump-start to your holidays by making something to brighten the season, sharing some camaraderie, and enjoying some delicious local drinks that include a raffle entry with every purchase. There will also be take-home kits available to purchase, and pick-up kits to pre-order for those who cannot attend, both with detailed instructions. These tickets are limited also, so please give us a call or text as soon as possible to reserve your spot!

This is my first Thanksgiving as an uncle and I’m very thankful for that and for all of you—always. Happy Thanksgiving everyone—stay safe and well!
