Want to contribute to a good cause? If you’re in the NYC area this week, go have fun at The Staten Strong Gala — it’s not only five hours of partying and prizes, it’s a way to help your fellow man (and possibly get a tattoo)!
If there’s a better way to contribute to charity than five hours of open bar, we’ve yet to hear it. So we asked the folks at Staten Strong to tell us more. But remember — even if you can’t attend, you can still give.
After Hurricane Sandy left many on Staten Island without electricity, gasoline, cars and even their homes, we didn’t wait for help to come. We rose up to help those who needed it. You can too. Staten Strong is more than a charity—we’re a community taking care of each other when and where we need it most. Founded by a group of Staten Island natives, including Theo Rossi of FX’s Sons of Anarchy we’re working day in and day out to help our neighbors get back on their feet after the storm.
Your donation will help fulfill immediate needs on the ground in the Staten Island community. From purchasing clothing a groceries, to generators and building supplies—you’ll be helping residents recover and rebuild after this devastating storm. Since we’re a community based group right here in Staten Island, we can get your donation to the people who need it more quickly and efficiently than national charities or government organizations.
In an effort to raise funds for those devastated by Hurricane Sandy, a group of local residents and celebrity supporters will host the Staten Strong Gala on December 27, 2012 from 8:00pm to 1:00am at the Excelsior Grand in the New Dorp section of Staten Island, NY. Tickets are only available for purchase on www.StatenStrongGala.com.
The event features guest Theo Rossi, Kim Coates and Ron Perlman of FX’s hit show Sons of Anarchy, The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe of Tru TV’s show Impractical Jokers, drummer AJ Pero, of the band Twisted Sister, DJ Skane of the Wu Tang Clan, Clemenza Caserta of FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen, Local Artist Scott Lobaido and Chris Franjola of E!’s Chelsey Lately.
Included in the $100 entry fee is a five-hour cocktail party/ open bar, live entertainment, auctions, raffles and a 50/50. In addition there will be tattoo stations and other attractions that will be announced as the event draws closer.
