City Reliquary Museum and Civic Organization Fundraiser
7-9pm Monday 10 December
Automotive Highschool Auditorium –
On Bedford Ave. across from McCarren Park in Williamsburg
On Monday, 10 December, the City Reliquary Museum and Civic Organization, a self-described for-the-people not-for-profit alternative history museum will be hosting its annual fundraiser. Located in Williamsburg at Metropolitan and Havemayer, the Reliquary Museum was originally conceived as a sidewalk museum and window display case where personal collections from community members could be displayed along with other local ephemera. Since then the organization has blossomed into a full non-profit that seeks to serve the people of New York City as a site for public events and where local history is celebrated and constituted by exhibitions of local artifacts. Admission to the fundraiser is $30, at which author Lawrence Weschler and sportswriter Paul Lukas will speak, while filmmaker JL Aronson will show excerpts from a new documentary about a South Williamsburg rooftop pigeon keeper. Admittance to the dinner afterwards costs $125, and will be hosted by Bamonte's, one of Williamsburg's historic Italian resaurants — RSVPs for the dinner are due tonight, and can be emailed in to rsvp at cityreliquary dot org.
