Fri, Nov 22nd, 2019

LOCAL LOVE, a benefit for Fort Greene’s Tillary Street Women’s Shelter, raised over $8,600 to purchase the shelter’s wishlist for supplies such as blankets, gloves, hats, and hygiene products. 

Jill Lindsey, a local Myrtle Avenue merchant, gathered a team of volunteers to host the benefit on November 15th. Many local merchants donated food and drinks to the event, and items to be auctioned off for the event.

Event attendees were treated to free mini sessions from Jill Lindsey practitioners, including acupressure, reiki, portraitures, and Tarot card readings.

Guests enjoyed quick portraits by a local artist.

Guests also included Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership board members Samantha Johnson left) and Amanda Neville right).

A HUGE thank you to Jill Lindsey for hosting & leading the event, and to local businesses who donated food & auction items. The Owl & The Pussycat Salon, Tipsy, Cardiff Giant, Villa Pancho, Graziella’s, Joe and Sal’s Pizza, Petee’s Pie, Bar Bolinas, LaRina, and to all of our generous neighbors.

Sometimes it takes a village and we’re so proud to be a part of this one and to lead this important work in supporting our neighbors.
