Red Hook is a place that holds not only some of our favorite people, but also some of the amazing food folks that we get to work with every week here at 61 Local. So, it seemed fitting that the Sunday after Sandy hit we all rallied together to give back to the neighborhood. The South Brooklyn Running Club
was quick on their feet and organized an awesome local fundraiser run with the help of 61 Local. The response was inspiring! Hundreds of people from all over the borough made their way to 61 to help raise money for the Red Hook Initiative
, an integral organization committed to rebuilding one of our favorite neighborhoods. We were honored to be asked to host the start and finish of the race. We served up some pre and post race brew to the many thirsty runners.
Come help us continue to support Red Hook and our local community! Join us this Thursday when Manufacture New York
holds their benefit for Red Hook recovery. There will be a silent auction full of one-of-a-kind, NYC made designs. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the Red Hook Initiative. Be sure to swing by, and help us celebrate the resilience of Red Hook!
