Culture on the Cheap
TOMORROW: Benefit For A Good Cause
Jennifer Hilton, a local activist for and long-time resident of the Greenpoint/Williamsburg community is asking for our help.
…in early June Jennifer had emergency surgery and was diagnosed with stage three color cancer. A single mother who is in between jobs and who recently sent her daughter off to college, she is faced with a tidal wave of costs associated with her treatment. To chill out this wave, Jen has decided to hold a fundraiser to help defray these costs and to contribute to an organization that has been instrumental in easing her burden, CancerCare.
This benefit will be no small affair. People and businesses from the area have generously offered their support:
- Teddy’s Bar & Grill will be hosting the event
- Brooklyn Brewery will be providing a keg of their fine local brew – profits to Jen.
- One of most amazing guitar players on the planet, Hugh Pool, and his band will be jamming live
In addition there will be a raffle and silent auction for items donated by local businesses, artists and artisans.
