We have two exciting ways for you to get involved with food & community this week:
Kickstart the Northside Town Hall: Support our project with fellow local civic leader The People’s Firehouse to convert a historic firehouse on Wythe Avenue to a one-of-a-kind center for arts and community services. The Northside Town Hall Community and Cultural Center is at the tail-end of an impressive fundraising campaign on Kickstarter–but we still need your support to get us over the top of our goal so that we get all of the funds pledged. We’re up to $15,000 of the $20,000 we need to be successful, but have less that a week to raise the rest.
Follow this link to give today and help create a permanent public space for our community. Donations of $50 or more will also get you tickets to the annual Taste Williamsburg Greenpoint event, where more than 50 local restaurants will provide the best food and drink Brooklyn has to offer on our own Williamsburg waterfront. If you don’t have a Kickstarter account, sign in to Kickstarter by clicking here.
Which leads us to the second thing: TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint is this weekend! So gather up friends and family this Sunday the 9th and bring them down to the end of North 11th Street from 1pm to sunset for this wonderful day of food, music and neighborhood fun. All proceeds go to the Town Hall project. Like we said, helping your community never tasted so good!
