Culture on the Cheap
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Those of you who are familiar with Greenpoint know its people, while occasionally brusque, have a lot of heart. Which brings me to the purpose of this post: yesterday I was contacted by Ann Kansfield, the co-Pastor of the Greenpoint Reformed Church, about an upcoming fundraiser she is organizing. On Thursday, December 3rd, our very own TBD will be hosting a trivia night with proceeds to benefit the Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry. Other than attending (that’s pretty much a no-brainer) here’s another way you can help: by donating prizes. A number of local businesses have already stepped up to the plate (thanks Mousey Brown, Dandelion Wine, Cafe Grumpy and anyone else I am missing!). I myself am planning on donating a piece of art work. Truth be told, the possibilities are pretty limitless.
If you too would like to lend a hand by donating a gift certificate, handicraft, or whatever your imagination can muster please contact Ms. Kansfield via email at ann (at) greenpointchurch (dot) org. Not only will it make you feel good, but you will be supporting a great cause: feeding your fellow Greenpointers!
