It's Time for the Coney Island USA Spring Gala!
From the Coney Island USA website:
Come out and celebrate the 2008 season with us, as we kick off the summer with a big blowout at the Angel Orensanz Foundation. See mermaids, burlesque performers, and practitioners of the sideshow arts while helping support Coney Island USA, the not-for-profit that produces the Mermaid Parade, the Coney Island Circus Sideshow, Burlesque at the Beach and that operates the Coney Island Museum.
On May 21, we'll be celebrating the 4th Annual Coney Island USA Spring Gala with popcorn, cotton candy, silent auction the Mini-Mermaid Parade and some of the best and craziest performers that New York City has to offer. We'll be putting the "fun" back into fundraising!
Tickets are $100 ($80 tax deductible) for regular Gala tickets and $250 ($200 tax deductible) for VIP tickets that include access to the VIP seating area, a gift bag, table service for food and drink, and meet and greets with our performers!
