"With food, music and dancing, it's going to be a great party," said Peter Mazzeo, Moonjumpers' president and The Hit Squad's frontman. "Moonjumpers is very happy to be teaming up with the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians to co-sponsor this event. It will be a fun night out for everyone and will help us continue to provide assistance to community members in need."

The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians practices friendship, unity and charity. It provides support to Huntington's food pantries and for programs that assist battered and abused woman and children. The active and energetic group meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the VFW Hall on Pulaksi Road in Huntington Station. New members are welcome.
