On Monday, June 22nd, friends of Camp Brooklyn bowled the night away at Brooklyn Bowl's state of the art bowling lanes. Brooklyn Bowl provided tasty food made to perfection by Blue Ribbon: fried chicken, green salad and mac & cheese. Bowlers also enjoyed live music and the incredible ambience of Brooklyn Bowl, which Rolling Stone magazine called “one of the most incredible places on Earth.” Camp Brooklyn greatly appreciates the support of everyone who came out to the event and also those who donated. Thanks to you, we’ll be able to send even more kids to sleep-away camp this summer!
On Thursday night, supporters of Camp Brooklyn gathered in Marco Polo Ristorante for a lovely evening of Italian wine and savories. Many thanks to Marco and Joe Chirico for hosting the event in their iconic restaurant, and providing a buffet of artfully-prepared delicacies. Thanks also to the distributors that generously provided the evening's exquisite wine selection: Palm Bay Wines, PW Distributors, and Vin Divino. Camp Brooklyn greatly appreciates the support of everyone who attended the wine tasting, and those who donated. Thanks to your generosity camp Brooklyn will be able to send more low income Brooklyn children to sleep away camp this summer.

March 13th was a wonderful night filled with great food in a great space, exciting auction items and old and new friends as we honored Bruce Ratner, Chairman and CEO of Forest City Ratner Companies, and Peter Meyer, President of TD Bank's New York City Market, for their outstanding philanthropic endeavors and commitment to the community, at the 40/40 CLUB & Restaurant by American Express at Barclays Center. We are thrilled to report that through their tremendous efforts as well as all those who contributed, we have raised enough money, from this event alone, to send over 150 low-income Brooklyn kids to accredited sleep-away camps this summer for an experience they'll never forget.
