Raising GreenspaceNYC 2: 2014 Fundraiser and Concert

Raising GreenSpaceNYC[masked] Benefit
To join our growth and our fun, mark your calendars for July 25th! HI-NY has an amazing outdoor space on the Upper West Side that we are filling with great music, food, hands-on activities and speakers on sustainability. Our aim this year is to raise funds to host a month-long community storefront in Spring/Summer 2015. 

Artistic materials provided through Material for the Arts,
NYC Office of Cultural Affairs 

Beer provided by
Brooklyn Brewery http://brooklynbrewery.com 

Musical performance by Dan Asselin of Hayride Casualties and The Phantom and The Fox. 

Dan Asselin is singer-songwriter for Hayride Casualties, a "climate folk" band that draws on the absurd injustice of the climate crisis in original music that is funny, poignant and incendiary, with strong melodies to drive the message home. Download Hayride Casualties' single and live album at hayridecasualties.bandcamp.com.

The Phantom and The Fox was formed by longtime childhood friends Dan Hodgkinson and Pete DeMaio. After years of collaborative songwriting they finally landed the perfect lineup: Dave Hodgkinson ( Dan's brother) Michael Perlmutter on bass and Keith Caylor on drums.  You can see this first hand at every Twisted Shamrock event where their following loyally supports local music and each other. http://thephantomandthefox.bandcamp.com/releases

Earlier this Spring, GreenspaceNYC celebrated its 3rd birthday.  GreenspaceNYC (www.greenspacenyc.org) is a non-profit collaborative that develops and curates free educational programming, hands-on workshops, and public design projects that encourage dialogue, enliven public spaces, and promote the future of a more equitable and sustainable city. Activities take place at public parks, sidewalks, plazas, vacant lots, community gardens, hacker spaces, cultural institutions, and local businesses.

We are very excited to host this get-together! Considering 26 workshops and events and workshops, 1000+ event participants, this 3 year-old has covered a lot of ground and has some great things in store for its future. GreenspaceNYC continues to move the organization forward–we are committed to our goal of facilitating a green community in the city through free events, discussions and projects. We’ve done our work solely with help of volunteers and material and in-kind donations from our awesome community partners.
