We are thrilled to be able to offer small grants through our Community Builders Mini-Grant program to support local events and activities! This June, we supported Just Because's Prom Queen Project, and the annual Hillstock Music Festival. A little here about each...
(submitted by Hillstock organizers)
The Hillstock 2012 was a runaway success! The three-day, all-ages do-it-yourself music festival was made possible by the great many artists, volunteers, and supportive area residents who contributed to this eclectic showcase of talent. This year's events brought almost 1,500 people out to venues all around Clinton Hill, shattering previous Hillstock attendance records.
The highlight of the weekend was Saturday's block party, supported by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership Community Builders Mini-Grant Program. Neighbors and newcomers alike dropped by Emerson Place to enjoy the great weather, eat up at a barbecue potluck, and listen to the mostly local lineup of live music. Hillstock organizers are grateful to everyone who took the time to participate in the weekend's festivities, and can't wait to do it again next year!
Just Because Prom Queen Project
For many young ladies prom preparation starts early, and can be overwhelmingly expensive for the girls and their families. This year, Just Because raised funds to provide 6 local teens with the full prom pampering experience! Check out their Facebook page for fabulous photos!
