Elmhurst Hospital First Responders Drive-In Movie
Organized by Keeley McNamara
As a midwife at Elmhurst Hospital, I am one of many first responders who have worked hard for the past two months to keep Queens safe. We are all happy to do it, but we also miss spending time relaxing with our families. When I heard about the drive in movie at Bel Aire Diner, I realized this would be a perfect opportunity for first responders, and their families, to spend a fun night out. Please help me send a first responder to the movies. Note: Movie and date will be selected after the fundraiser ends.
Queens Together is matching funds for this event! Please note this is a closed event for first responders. Tickets are not for sale.
What is Queens Together?
Queens Together is a non-profit association of independent restaurants supporting each other in business and feeding communities during crises. Their motto is “One Borough. One Voice.”
During the COVID-19 crisis they are building a bridge that connects local restaurants with food relief efforts in their communities. The dollars raised allow restaurants to make real money, pay their workers, fuel the local economy and most importantly do what restaurants do best: care for others with food. That's because the meals and groceries they fund, prepared by these local chefs, go to neighbors facing food and economic insecurity. The work benefits the full circle of the community: from food businesses to those in need to those who donate. This mission will continue beyond COVID-19 and become a tool for future needs and projects.
