On Tuesday, April 26, 2022, the Long Island Imagine Awards took place at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. These awards were created to showcase the non-profit sector and all the good work that it does. Of the many entrants submitted, RSVP was chosen as a finalist! The awards were presented in five categories, each with four finalists. RSVP was proud to be in the company of the Andrew McMorris Foundation, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck and Birthday Wishes in the “Rising Star” category.

Our congratulations to the winner—The Andrew McMorris Foundation, and we wish to thank all the sponsors who made this event possible with the purpose of shining a light on the important work being done by not-for-profits on Long Island.
