ARTISTS JOIN FOR FOOD DRIVE
NEW YORK, NY (December 30, 2007) What a great way to end the year! The ever-alert and multi-talented artist, Julie Mardin, and her good friend Michelle, open their hearts and their doors to friends, family and new faces for their annual food drive.
It all started a few years back when Julie’s friend Michelle pointed out the fact that many of the New York City’s food pantries are on the verge of shutting down. So, the ladies “put their money where their mouth is” and held a food drive, where the price of admission was a canned or dry food item(s). Complete with great music, wine, and other refreshments, a good time was had by all! The event was held at Julie’s 39th Street art space. Thanks Julie & Michelle! You ladies Rock!
Although the party is over, Julie & Michelle recommend that interested people visit foodbanknyc.org for donation suggestions. We here at AF hope this inspires others to try a similar drive of their own for this worthwhile cause.
