BENEFITING: ST BARTHOLOMEWS PRESERVATION FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
Thanks for visiting. I'm running a 10K on May 11 and will give all sponsor donations to St. Bart's Conservancy, a non-religious foundation dedicated to maintaining the beautiful Landmark building that is St. Bart's Church on Park Ave. .
Like many NYers, I'd walked past the building many times over the years but didn't know much about it. St. Bart's plays an important role in our community through things like its soup kitchen, food pantry, women's shelter, education and youth programs, social groups and concerts.
The church itself is Episcopalian and welcomes people of all faiths (I became a member last year and enjoy the lovely community of people). The Episcopalian Church, and St. Bart's in particular, is quite progressive and offers a welcome place for people to pray, explore and/or participate in the many activities and programs. .
Crowdrise accepts donations starting at $10. If you're moved to give, any amount will be warmly appreciated.
