Aid To The Developmentally Disabledís Shark Tank Showdown Winner To Swim With The Sharks At The Shamrock Shindig

Nicole Barylski

On Thursday, March 16th, Aid to the Developmentally Disabled (ADD) will host their third annual Shamrock Shindig at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead.

"Our organization is thrilled about the support for our Shamrock Shindig this year," said Melissa Martin, marketing coordinator for Aid to the Developmentally Disabled. "We have an amazing group of sponsors, including Suffolk County National Bank, and an overall magical evening planned with raffles, food and live music."

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day a wee bit early as you enjoy traditional Irish food, live music by Tommy Sullivan of The Brooklyn Bridge, a raffle, hors d'oeuvres, and more. However, the most exciting part of the evening will hands down be the 120,000 Gallon Shark Tank Showdown. What is a Shark Tank Showdown you may be wondering? Well, leading up to the Shindig, those brave enough to take the plunge into the Aquarium's shark tank can set up a crowdfunding page through ADD on www.crowdrise.com. The person that raises the most money will be awarded the opportunity of a lifetime - experiencing a nose-to-nose swim with the sharks in the 120,000-gallon Lost City tank.

"Everyone is particularly looking forward to the Shark Tank Showdown," Martin added.

Tickets to the third annual Shamrock Shindig are $65 per person and $25 for children.

Founded in 1980, Aid to the Developmentally Disabled, runs a 24/7 operation in 30 residential homes throughout both the North Fork and South Fork that services over 200 individuals. The nonprofit 5013(c) agency's mission is "to create a supportive environment whereby people with a range of abilities are actively encouraged to develop an direct services that recognize their unique desires,ambitions, values and abilities."

The Shamrock Shindig will support ADD programs and services, as well as community engagement efforts for more than 160 of the organization's differently-abled population at ADD residential and supported homes.

Long Island Aquarium is located at 431 East Main Street in Riverhead. For more information, call 631-727-6220 or visit www.addny.org.
