On behalf of Suffolk County Legislator Tom Muratore and Brookhaven Town Councilman Kevin J. LaValle, I would like to extend to you an invitation to participate in our Third Annual Hobbs Farm "Run the Farm 4 Mile Challenge."

Hobbs Farm
178 Oxhead Road, Centereach

Saturday, August 19, 2017
Starting at 9:00 AM - Awards Ceremony immediately following the race at 10:30 AM

Hobbs Farm is the only remaining African American farm in the middle of Long Island, with a rich history dating back to 1906 when James Hobb brought his family to North Centereach from Georgia. Currently, the farm is an all volunteer non-profit where 90% of their annual yield is donated to a network of local food pantries and programs.

Please consider sponsoring this special event. Last year, we had over 250 participants and over 200 guests attend. Below, you can find details on sponsorship opportunities.

We are looking for community organizations who want to pitch-in at various stations along the course. It is an early morning start and we wrap-up by 10:30am. Please let me know if your organization can engage.

All proceeds to benefit Hobbs Farm, a volunteer non-profit local farm who provides fresh, wholesome produce to those in need in the community.

Thank you all very much in advance for your consideration and continued support.

It is truly an honor to serve as Suffolk County Legislator for a fourth term. I’d like to thank the residents of the Fourth Legislative District for their continued support and trust. As a man of the people, my commitment is to keep Suffolk County a great place to live, work and raise families.

My district is located in the heart of Brookhaven Town, encompassing Selden, Centereach and the Brookhaven portion of Ronkonkoma, plus parts of Farmingville, Medford, Coram, Holbrook, Holtsville and Port Jefferson Station.


Currently, I sit on the Environment, Planning and Agriculture and Seniors and Consumer Protection committees, and serve as Vice Chair of Public Works, Transportation and Energy. My energies will be focused on modernizing our aging County infrastructure and ensuring that all services in Suffolk County, especially for our senior population are top notch.

It is my job to listen to the needs of the community, and relay those needs to county government; as your elected official I take that responsibility very seriously. MY door is always open, and I invite my constituents to contact my staff and me if we can be of assistance. Thank you again.
