Description

On September 20th Hurricane María, the fifth strongest storm to hit the United States and Puerto Rico’s largest natural disaster in one century, left a path of destruction in its wake.

As a fellow Puerto Rican, I experienced first-hand the anguish that came along with not being able to communicate with my loved ones for days on end and watching my hometown, the place that saw me grow-get battered to an unrecognizable state.

We are on the brink of a humanitarian crisis as the majority of the island is without electricity and will be for the foreseeable future. Most are without running water, are low on medicine, gasoline and food among many other basic items. In response to the necessities the island faces, myself along with Kors Culture want to take action.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 25th for an event aimed to raise funds for citizens of Puerto Rico! WE ARE EXTENDING THE INVITATION TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY! Please help spread the word.

    • NOTE: You will be asked to show your Eventbrite purchase at the entrance of the event in order to receive your raffle and drink ticket.
    • You may purchase additional raffle tickets for $10 each to increase your chances to win a particular prize.
    • The suggested minimum donation cover is $15, but you can donate as much as you’d like!
    • Please RSVP by EOD 10/20 to gauge food orders.
    • Tickets will still be available for purchase on the day of the event.

  • Where will the proceeds go?

The majority of people on the island have had trouble receiving packages and withdrawing funds from their accounts, which is why I have partnered with two friends on the island- Mario Albergini and Karina Pagán who have been tirelessly spearheading local relief efforts. They have been providing food, water and basic items to the elderly and others from the moment the Hurricane hit.

All proceeds from the $15 donation cover will be utilized for the purchase of gift cards and food. The money raised will be transferred via Western Union, and gift cards will be distributed directly on the island.

The $15 donation affords you the following on the day of the event:

  • Free Appetizers
  • Drink tickets (on a first come first serve basis!)
  • A ticket to participate in the event’s raffle
    • A chance to win one of the following prizes:
      • $150 Gift Card to Jospeh Leonard , a casual West Village neighborhood spot with heart and soul, serving seasonal American food in a welcoming, relaxed setting.
      • $70 Certificate to http://www.vanityprojectsnyc.com/ (3 opportunities to win)
      • A 5 class pack from http://fhittingroom.com/, an upscale boutique fitness studio delivering body-changing, high intensity workouts in small classes (valued at $185.00).
      • Original Art Piece commissioned by Juan Benet (check out his work @epicuno on instagram)
      • MMK Tote Bag
      • MMK Crossbody Bag
      • More prizes to come!

If you cannot make the event, please also consider donating here (www.helpprdespacito.com) which is run by ConPRmetidos, a non-profit founded by a young team of millennials that are passionate about seeing Puerto Rico move forward. You can read an article Forbes wrote about the organization on October 6th here.

The road to recovery will be a long one, and WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GET THERE.

I appreciate your support in advance!! Do not hesitate to reach out to me for any questions.
