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. Billy tragically passed away from a first time heroin overdose at 25 years young. 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. “I want to thank all the residents and businesses across Brookhaven Town who made a commitment to be part of the Hope Walk for Addiction,” said Councilwoman Bonner. “Drug and alcohol addiction is an epidemic on Long Island and far too prevalent among young people, but if we work together we can make a difference.” Registration and Sponsorship Opportunities Visit Hope Walk Addiction website for multi-level sponsorship and donation opportunities, registration forms and more information about Hope Walk for Addiction.
