FDC’s 2018 Benefit Gala

Purchase Tickets and Ads Now Join Us at the Picnic House in Prospect Park on May 1st, 2018 (6:30-10:30pm) in celebration of the vitality of Flatbush!  Honoring: 2018 Leadership Award: Eric Gonzalez, Brooklyn District Attorney 2018 Impact Award: Bea De La Torre, Managing Director of Housing at Robin Hood 2018 Lifetime Service Award: Nicholas Correra, Newkirk Plaza Association President Emeritus Our Annual Benefit Gala, held every May in Brooklyn, is FDC’s most important fundraiser of the year.
