[UPDATE: Due to the weather forecast, tonight’s benefit party at Pier 1 will be held at One Brooklyn Bridge Park (corner of Furman and Joralemon Streets). Please join us from 6pm-9pm for great food, music, and company in a beautiful — indoor — waterfront setting. Your contribution will help us bring more projects like Pier 1 to the park next summer. We hope to see you there.]
The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is having a benefit party on Pier 1 tonight (Sept 25), to raise funding for future programming and parks (like the interim park they created at Pier 1). They’ve made a lot of progress this year with the temporary Pier 1 park and the demolition of the old piers along the river. In 2007, they brought the floating pool and continue to organize educational programming for kids, Movies with a View, and art exhibitions…all free for the public. Support the Conservancy by attending the benefit party or make a donation online.
When: Thursday, September 25, 6:00-9:00 pm
at Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park One Brooklyn Bridge Park (corner of Furman and Joralemon Streets)
for a benefit party to say goodbye to SUMMER ’08 @ PIER 1 and help us get started on Summer ’09.
