BRING BACK THE BOARDWALKS is an art auction to benefit the Far Rockaway and Coney Island shorelines which have been wrecked by Hurricane Sandy. A team of united professionals from varied backgrounds has assembled to rebuild these affected New York communities through art, and want to do it with your help.
Artists have donated work which will be available at a silent auction on Saturday, November 17th from 2pm – 9pm at Trais Gallery in Soho. 100% of the proceeds of the silent auction will go to the recovery and rebuilding of the communities of the Rockaways and Coney Island. As passionate lovers of Coney Island and the Rockaways, BBTB wants to help the communities to recover, rebuild and come back from this disaster.
