Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse Annual Fundraising Party!
May 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $20
Support free kayaking, and help the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse raise $12,300 for our 2016 season!
Come on out to our third annual fundraising party! It’s the perfect opportunity to mingle with your fellow kayaking enthusiasts, learn more about the BBPB and what we do, and have a drink or two (on us!). We’ve also got a kayak-themed photo booth and lots of awesome raffle prizes—like gift certificates to cool Brooklyn restaurants and tickets to a beer-making class. What could be better? Knowing that your donations will make this summer’s kayaking bigger and more awesome than ever!
Money raised this year will primarily go towards expanding and maintaining our fleet of kayaks as well as purchasing needed safety gear. Here’s a breakdown of where your funds are going:
-New boats ($6,000)
-Safety and other kayaking equipment ($1,000)
-Repairs to our boats and equipment ($1,000)
-Other expenses, including membership fees, website maintenance, promotional material, etc. ($2,000)
General admission tickets include drinks and are $20 online or $25 at the door. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the party for $5 each, or 12 tickets for $50. Additional donations are, of course, always welcome and can be made online or at the event.
So get your ticket now, grab a friend, and we’ll see you there!
