Eat It, Maria – A Fundraiser for Service Santurce
Unless you live under a rock or are named D*nald Tr*mp, you acknowledge the absolute devastation that Puerto Rico, a US territory with just about as many people as the state of Connecticut, is experiencing in the wake of Hurricane Maria. The situation is dire and thankfully people and organizations are stepping up to help, since our president won’t. “Chef Maria Grubb of Santurce’s Gallo Negro will be at The Brooklyn Kitchen for a party to raise money to support the hospitality workers in Puerto Rico through Service Santurce (a nonprofit still in formation following the storm). She will be serving up passed bites, while bartenders Rafa García Febles and Roberto Rosa shake up cocktails.” There will also be music by SAREEN and portraits by Kevin Alvir Draws You. To aid the fundraiser, there will be a dozen raffles by a variety of sponsors. If you want to help make a difference, but are not sure how to make a palpable impact, this may very well be a worthy option.
