Unexpected Hero Fund

BENEFITING: UPRISING NYC INC

EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2016

THE STORY:

What does it mean to be a superhero?
Is it just wearing a great cape and saving the world with your bulging biceps? 

At The Uprising, we love a good cape, but we believe being a hero is more than that. A true hero is judged not by how much you can lift, but by who you choose to lift up.

This summer, we are celebrating our superhero community with an outdoor series of the classic movies that have us cheering for the "unexpected hero."

In The Sound of Music, being a hero is defending family and literally fighting the Nazis. (Plus twirling)

In The Princess Bride, it's relentlessly pursuing justice and overcoming inconceivable odds. (Plus great sword fights)

In The Goonies, it's rising to the occasion and forming unexpected allegiances. (Plus buried treasure)

In The Shining, it's... well, every hero needs a great villain, right?

You don't want to miss your only chance to see these films under the stars in New York City. Donate to The Uprising for a code to reserve your VIP experience!

Donate $39 to reserve one VIP lounge chair for one screening.

Donate $60 to reserve TWO VIP lounge chairs (may be used at same screening or for two different films)

When you make a donation to The Uprising, you are investing in our community of superheroes - everyday New Yorkers making a habit of making a difference. We have three programs to make an impact with our generosity:

  • LevelUp Academy: Day-long mini-camps for college-bound Juniors and Seniors. Teens learn one-on-one with a mentor in a high-energy, interactive setting where they develop skills that will allow them to thrive in the transition to college.
  • SWARMS: Transformative physical makeovers to improve the spaces where NYC teens live, learn, and play. Our Superhero army rallies together to enhance and upgrade physical spaces like schools, playgrounds, and community centers.
  • Uprising Connect: Curated volunteer opportunities to support meaningful projects around the City. The Uprising commits to ongoing projects with organizations where our volunteers can make meaningful impacts on the diverse challenges facing NYC.
