Scheduled to be in attendance and performing are musical groups Lords of the underground and Lost Boys, along with DJ's Omen, Red Man and Tony Touch to go along with other surprise performances. Grammy Award-winning producer and music icon Sid Omen Brown is helping with musical direction and supervision.
As a 2020 Community Impact Award recipient from the American Heart Association Long Island Chapter, Arneberg is prioritizing the promotion of healthy eating throughout the event. The birthday fundraiser will feature a vegan and plant-based menu that will include Ingrid Arneberg's own raw food desserts along with catering provided by Long Island New York's own Green Street Food Truck and Indian cuisine from Saaz Restaurant in Hampton Bays.
"We're using this birthday fundraiser as a way to show that there are people in our community actively trying to make a difference,"
Arneberg and Marin's focus for the event is on supporting these two local nonprofits that greatly impact the area's youth and adults through their community programs at a time where community art centers are more important and threatened than ever. "We hope this event helps further strengthen community ties by pulling us together as we focus on art, health and education in our community," says Arneberg.
