AFTER THE STORM: HURRICANE SANDY ANNIVERSARY BENEFIT
Brooklyn Food & Wine Showcase at The Bowery Hotel |All Proceeds Support The Rockaway Rescue Alliance Shore Soup Project
This October marks the anniversary of the storm that drastically changed the face of our city – physically, economically and culturally. Several hours of torrential weather left New Yorkers with their homes in ruins. Widespread power outages cut whole families off from access to clean water, food and all the facilities we take for granted. And even one year later, people are still struggling to get back on their feet.
The Rockaway Rescue Alliance formed in the wake of this devastation with a mission to bring hot, good, wholesome meals to stranded residents and rebuild the community from the inside. Now the organization’s Shore Soup Project is raising funds to build a brick and mortar sliding-scale restaurant in Far Rockaway, spreading the gospel of nutritious, local foods beyond the scope of storm recovery.
Join the Rockaway Rescue Alliance on Wednesday, October 23 for a celebration of our progress and a look towards the future! The Bowery Hotel will showcase a monumental evening full of unlimited local and sustainable food, wine, craft beer, entertainment and art. Eat local, drink local & support local – it’s the Brooklyn way.
Tickets: $85 (general), $250 (VIP) | http://bit.ly/shoresoup
