Friday, December 2nd, 7PM
The South Oxford Space, 138 South Oxford Street (between Atlantic Avenue & Hanson Place), Brooklyn, NY
The evening’s festivities includes:
Children’s Holiday Party: Studio G (ground floor)
This year the children of Fort Greene will be lead by Long Island University Brooklyn Campus and Pratt Institute art students and alumni to work on a community mural to be donated to The Brooklyn Hospital’s Children’s Ward. The Fort Greene Association (FGA) will provide the art materials and your child(ren) provides their artistic talent! Immediately following the activity we will have a surprise guest, sponsored by the Greenlight Bookstore for storytelling.
The Adult Holiday Party: Great Oak Room (2nd floor)
Join your neighbors, business owners and community leaders for caroling and our exciting Neighborhood Merchant Raffle! Don't miss this year's spectacular Fort Greene Merchant Raffle. Generous prizes of gift certificates for dining, shopping and services right here in Fort Greene. Last year we gave away $2000 worth of raffle prizes! Come prepared to purchase (cash) chances for your own winning holiday experience. Proceeds go to this year's Christmas dinners for the needy in Fort Greene.
In addition to bringing your covered pot luck dish for the party, the FGA is asking guests to bring canned goods which will be donated to local food pantries. Local pantries have been helping to provide food for those who would otherwise go hungry, providing food for well over 100,000 meals a year. Top ten items of need are pasta sauce, parmalat (shelf stable) milk, peanut butter, tuna fish, dry pasta, baby food, canned vegetables, dry beans, canned meats. Additionally dry pet food is a huge help to families whose pets often go hungry or are given up to high kill shelters as result of family hardship. Please give in this Season of Giving.
Please RSVP today via our Fort Greene Association Facebook Event Page or Holiday@HistoricFortGreene.org. Please tell us what holiday dish you plan to bring to the potluck and the number of children and their ages who will be participating in the children's activity.
