Blue Moon Fish Hosts a Benefit for Two Fellow Greenmarket Farmers at Southpaw on November 6

Blue Moon Fish will be hosting a fundraiser at Southpaw on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope on Sunday, November 6th from 2 to 8 p.m. The shindig is to support two fellow Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket farmers whose fields were destroyed by Hurricane Irene: Kira Kinney at Evolutionary Organics and Ray Bradley of Bradley Farm, whom we just profiled this summer in the magazine.

Speaking of Blue Moon Fish–yesterday we gave away two tickets to their sea-to-table dinner at Bubby’s tomorrow night–the Mattituck-based business is hosting a fundraiser at Southpaw on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope on Sunday, November 6th from 2 to 8 p.m.

The shindig is to support two fellow Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket farmers whose fields were destroyed by Hurricane Irene: Kira Kinney at Evolutionary Organics and Ray Bradley of Bradley Farm, whom we just profiled this summer in the magazine. For a $20 donation, there’ll be eight bands, a dance company, Blue Moon owner Alex Villani’s clam chowder, more food from local farmers and restaurants, and a raffle–and 100% of the proceeds go to Ray and Kira.  If you can’t make it, you can also donate online. See more on BlueMoonBash.com or on Facebook.
