We were very excited to be able to have our Summer Fun Party at White Post Farms. The party included free admission and food at the beautiful White Post Farms, voted Best Petting Zoo on Long Island by the Long Island Press and ranked among the best places on Long Island to take your kids for family fun.
We had a beautiful day for our golf outing. Our event was at Indian Hills Country Club in Northport which is a hidden gem on the water. Our honoree was Thomas LaCascia , North Shore – LIJ CareConnect Insurance Company, Inc. Thomas has been a great support to Angela’s House in our mission to assist families care for children that are medically frail.
The Golf was great, the food was delicious, the raffles were the best we ever had and our presentation helped us to bring a greater understand of the lives of the medically frail children and their families
Ryan Seacrest’s team was very generous to one of the children from our new home Angela’s House III in Stony Brook
Seeing OneRepublic in concert is a special experience for most fans, but for one little girl, it truly was life-changing.
In a video for The Giver ”First Experiences,” a 13-year-old named Torren not only sees her favorite band for the first time, but it’s her very first concert as well.
After being confined to a hospital and nursing home for the first 12 years of her life due to a respiratory illness, Torren has only recently stepped outside … and on this special night, she’s celebrating.
Not only does Torren get to see OneRepublic play — and watch as lead singer Ryan Tedder dedicated their song “I Lived” to their special fan — but she even gets to meet the band.
This project is much more than us creating videos of awesome individuals experiencing something for the first time, it’s about inspiring others to give their own first experiences.
Families, children, and friends of Angela’s House set sail on Tuesday evening on a voyage that was relatively short in nature, but a long time coming. People of all ages took over the boardwalk at Captree Park in Babylon, NY as they waited patiently to step aboard their boats.
It was a warm evening, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping and soon the fish were biting, but not even the warmth of the sun could compare to the warm, appreciative smile and energy of the eager fishermen and women. The biggest smile of them all came from Founder of Angela’s House, Bob Policastro. As he greeting each person and helped the children on to the boat, joy radiated off of him, and caused the ocean to glisten that much more.
“The 8th Angela’s House fishing trip was as usual, beautiful. Being on the boat with the kids and other people who are passionate about helping the children and families of Angela’s House is simply alluring. The sites of the sun setting while the kids are fishing and understanding the value of why they are there is exhilarating.” – Karin Caro, Blu Chip Marketing
A fishing trip that first eight years ago with one boat Fish Taleand is now up to 4 boats which has become one of the largest groups at Captree Piers. Dr. and Mrs. Anthony Policastro sponsored the fishing trip fundraiser.Supporters from all walks of life, young and old, came together, all of whom showed their support not only by fishing for a cause but by wearing it literally on their sleeves. All 250 people in attendance wore the purple Angela’s House t-shirts throughout the evening. As the boats sailed into the sunset everyone laughed, ate, and fished together, and soon strangers became friends, united by their love for Angela’s House.
On August 30, 1989, Bob and Angie Policastro's daughter, Angela, was born. She had suffered severe brain damage during birth leaving her very medically frail, requiring nursing care.
The Policastros received tremendous support while in hospital but they realized there were few services available to help them if they were to leave. The few services that were available were very fragmented and difficult to coordinate. Read More
