Save Gowanus Ballroom Fundraiser & FlutuArte NY!
Gowanus Ballroom (55 9th St., #61, Brooklyn)
The Gowanus Ballroom is recovering from severe damage after extensive flooding from hurricane Sandy. Due to ongoing clean-up, we are combining the Save Gowanus Ballroom Fundraiser with the FlutuArte NY! event. Both will now take place on Saturday, November 24th, 6pm.
Come out and show your support for the Gowanus Ballroom and FlutuArte. Experience a bit of Rio de Janeiro right here in Brooklyn. Bring your bikinis and swim trunks and take a dip in the HEATED SWIMMING POOL. Slow things down to a tropical pace, enjoy FREE Jerk BBQ from 7–10pm, sip on special FlutuTinis in our corner of paradise, and dance until the wee hours.
Donations of $15 per-person admission will support the Gowanus Ballroom and FlutuArte. We will also be accepting donations of canned goods, clothing and other emergency necessities for those suffering in the wake of hurricane Sandy.
