While we were unable to gather together this spring for our annual benefit, Sunset Swing, we still felt the the need to celebrate and to provide more support to our essential employers and workforce. So, on July 2, 2020, we held our first virtual annual gala.
In a time of increasing need and declining resources, funds raised through our first virtual Sunset Swing allows the SBIDC team to continue helping our essential yet vulnerable employers to access lifelines of financial assistance, relaunch safely, hire our resident workers back into quality jobs, produce vital goods, and navigate the complex challenges ahead.
If you missed the boat, you can watch our Virtual Sunset Swing as we salute some of our own heroes going above and beyond to feed and supply New Yorkers: Red Hook Shipping, MTC Transportation and future neighbor, City Harvest. The event also included special messages, musical performances, fun programming and recognition of our sponsors.
Although Sunset Swing may be over, the need is still great. Please consider a donation of any amount to ensure the continued success of our programs.
