Let's come together to celebrate the incredible resilience and strength of our local community in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. We will be holding a recovery benefit for the hard-hit Red Hook area of Brooklyn. Join the designers of Manufacture New York (www.manufactureny.org) in a silent auction benefit for Red Hook Initiative (www.rhicenter.org) of one-of-kind designs, made here in NYC. Also, you can find out more about the Manufacture NY movement, and how to help us bring back local apparel manufacturing jobs and resources to NY. Together, we can thrive and create an innovative, community-driven incubator/factory hybrid for the new generation of fashion professionals.
Admittance will be free, with a variety of ways to give including silent auction bidding, purchasing benefit tees + totes (supplied by Brooklyn Royalty, USA-made) and cash/credit card donations will also be accepted. Participating designers include Nathalie Kraynina, Brooklyn Royalty, Apartment 4B, Malca BK, Gina Schiappacasse, Natalya Gorova, E. Kammeyer Jewelry and more will be in attendance.
Details: 100% of the proceeds to benefit Red Hook Initiative (www.rhicenter.org). Open to the public, free admission and silent auction will run from 8pm-9pm, with winners announced at 10pm. You do not have to be present to place a winning bid.
