The Kitchen is Flooded and Other Disasters: Storytelling and Networking in Support of Red Hook Businesses
On Tuesday, November 27, come out and support a community in Brooklyn that is dear to us–Red Hook’s unique businesses, over 30 of which were badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
Join us for a night of food, beer, and stories about kitchen mishaps and surviving Hurricane Sandy with Brooklyn chefs. Afterward Work It Brooklyn will lead one of their signature speed networking sessions, this time for food professionals as many in the industry lost their jobs after restaurants were destroyed by the storm. We’ll also have raffle giveaways from local food businesses.
Raffle and ticket sales will benefit ReStore Red Hook, which is helping businesses devastated by Hurricane Sandy (the majority of businesses on their site suffered damages of $50,000 or more, and they need help reaching their goal). Food vendors will also donate 10% of sales to ReStore Red Hook and Brooklyn Brewery will donate a beer token to each guest attending.
Tickets are $15 and include a free beer and one raffle ticket. You can also select “Donate More!” to support ReStore Red Hook even further.
Speakers to date include Allison Robicelli, who helped spearhead relief efforts in Sheepshead Bay and other South Brooklyn neighborhoods and started the Bay Ridge Cares Kitchen to feed Sandy victims; and Leisah Swenson and Monica Byrne of home/made in Red Hook, and also the co-founders of ReStore Red Hook.
More speakers, food vendors, and raffle prizes to be announced soon!
