Farmingville, NY – On April 22, Councilwoman Jane Bonner, the Town of Brookhaven and Hope House Ministries will co-sponsor the Hope Walk for Addiction in memory of Billy Reitzig of Miller Place.

The Hope Walk for Addiction, which will be held along the Town’s Cedar Beach Nature Walk in Mount Sinai, is designed to generate awareness, educate and raise funds to help fight addiction and save lives. All proceeds will benefit Hope House Ministries in Port Jefferson and the work that they do to help fight addiction and care for those who are trapped by drug and alcohol abuse. Councilwoman Bonner said, “Billy left behind family and friends who will forever be touched by his beautiful life and heartbreaking story of pain and addiction. Now, one year to the day after his untimely death, we will all join in at the Hope Walk for Addiction to help those who struggle with drug and alcohol abuse. Together, we can make a difference.” Visit Hope Walk for Addiction website for multi-level sponsorship and donation opportunities, registration forms and more information about Hope Walk for Addiction.
