Love, Food, Soul Charity Fundraiser
Feb 28, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm
A concerned citizens group is combating local hunger with an evening of the arts.
Love, Food, Soul Project will host an evening of art music, to fight hunger in New York City with a suggested donation of $25 at the door or donate online at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/love-food-soul-charity-fundraiser-tickets-15593891750
ALL of the advance donations through eventbrite, donations at the day of the event and a portion of art sales will be donated to City Harvest.
Love Food Soul Project aims to raise $2500 to feed 316 children in New York City for one month. Currently 1.7 million New Yorkers live in poverty and nearly 3 million New Yorkers are facing food insecurity, and are forced to make difficult decisions every day–choosing between basic necessities such as rent and food.
This event will feature the work of New York City artists, which will be sold at a silent auction, and performances by Bareopera.org In addition, Rooster’s Caribbean Tapas, one of the partners for the event will provide a full dinner for two for patrons who choose to donate $50 or more. Proceeds of the event will go towards the New York City Harvest, the country’s first food rescue organization, that serves 1.4 million food insecure New Yorker’s annually.
