Celebrate Brooklyn! Opening Night Gala 2011
Something to Celebrate!
Thanks to all our supporters who made the 2011 Celebrate Brooklyn! Opening Night Gala such an incredible success!
The evening kicked off BRIC Arts | Media |Bklyn’s 33rd summer of performances in style. We welcomed approximately 400 guests for the Gala and surpassed our fundraising goal. More than 12,000 audience members filled the Bandshell area for a rousing free performance by Andrew Bird. We are so grateful for the contributions of our guests, sponsors and supporters, which helped us to present nine weeks of fantastic free concerts at the Prospect Park Bandshell this summer. From all of us at BRIC and our Brooklyn community… THANK YOU!
During the evening, BRIC was thrilled to recognize the commitment of Ray Levin and jetBlue Airways, two long-time supporters of Celebrate Brooklyn! We were also honored to have remarks from distinguished public leaders, including Commissioner Adrian Benepe, New York City Department of Parks and Recreation; Commissioner Kate Levin, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; and Borough President Marty Markowitz.
