The Funds of March

Brooklyn Currents | 3/23/2014 | 0 comments

Capitalizing on the Shakespearean warning to "Beware the Ides of March," Coney Island USA held its annual fundrasing gala precisely on March 15, at Webster Hall in Manhattan, complete with Caesar and Roman costumes. VIP tickets at $250 apiece were sold out; officials did not disclose the fundraising totals by this posting.

CIUSA makes possible such Coney favorites as the Mermaid Parade, the Coney Island Film Festival, the iconic freak shows, and the Coney Island Museum.

Fire Breather Ray Valenz and the Screamin' Rebel Angels band (pictured) were among the entertainers at the gala.
