Bring Back the Boardwalks

November 14, 2012

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy we would like to join forces to help rebuild our beloved beach communities of Far Rockaway and Coney Island through art. We want to do something more than just write a check so we are all rallying together to raise money in a fun, unified way so that these places can recover, rebuild and come back stronger than ever.

We are asking many friends to donate, artists to contribute their work, companies to sponsor our event and friends to join our committee to make this event the success it needs to be – and you are one of them!  So please join us and consider being a part of our fundraising effort on Saturday, November 17th from 2-9pm at Trais Gallery on 76 Wooster Street.

100% of the proceeds of the silent auction and all cash donations will go to the recovery and rebuilding of the communities of the Rockaways and Coney Island and we’re not stopping there!  In the coming days we aim to secure a separate fund for our project within their organization to be evenly split 50/50 between Rockaway and Coney Island!

As passionate lovers of Coney Island, and heavily dependent recreationalist’s in the Rockaways we all have a sincere interest to bring these communities back and help the neighborhoods to recover, rebuild and come back from this disastrous nightmare.   Click for more info.
