On March 23, I was trilled to attend the New York Loves New York Sandy Relief Fundraiser at the Bohemian Beer Garden in Astoria. The fundraiser was spearheaded by Jennifer Carr and all funds raised went to benefit the following causes: Breezy Point Disaster Fund,  Empire State Relief Fund, Lindy Manpower, and Staten Strong. Jennifer is a New York Native and this was her way of giving back to so many affected by Hurricane Sandy this past October. The fundraiser was filled with fun for all ages. Games and face painting for the little ones, raffles, a silent art auction, incredible bar food, yummy cupcakes, beer for the grown ups, and let's not forget an awesome DJ!
Unfortunately so many neighborhoods & families are still suffering from the effects of Sandy. You can still help by making a donation in any amount to the causes mentioned above or a Sandy Relief Charitable Organization of your choice.  Thank you!

  7. I attended this event. Since I was fortunate enough to come out of this terrible storm unscathed, I felt that it was my obligation to give to those who are still suffering today. Even though sometimes we can be at odds with our neighbors, when hardship hits our town, we always come together. Vivo Nueva New York!!

  8. This looks like such a great event, and for a great cause. It's sad to think that there are quite a few people still not in their homes post Sandy. Will definitely donate. Thanks for sharing!
