BENEFITING: Brooklyn Academy of Music
ORGANIZER: Brooklyn Academy of Music
EVENT: BAM 24-Hour Movie Marathon
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2014
Some people run for a cause. Running's not so much my thing. But sleep depravation I can do! WILL do, gladly, for The Brooklyn Academy of Music's 24-Hour Movie Marathon, benefitting arts education in this here fine borough.
Yes, I pledge to sit in a dark, historic theatre watching movies for an entire day and night, and every dollar I raise will help give kids greater access to the performances, after-school programs, and workshops that BAM offers.
Just $25, for instance, helps get one kid involved in Arts & Justice, a free after-school program in which high school students create original theater works about social issues.
But even just $1 is appreciated, and will earn you a share of my bleary-eyed gratitude. It's for an excellent cause that makes a difference in the lives of many New York kids. Thank you!
