Forest Park Carousel to Hold Alzheimer’s Fundraiser August 17th

July 17, 2012

Here is a fantastic opportunity to have a great time and raise money for a worthy cause at the same time.

NY Carousel Entertainment, LLC, operator of the recently re-opened Forest Park Carousel, is proud to host the first annual fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter,, on Friday, August 17th, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.  This event is RAIN or SHINE.

That evening, NY Carousel Entertainment will be donating one hundred percent of all proceeds from carousel rides to the Alzheimer’s NYC Chapter. Visitors can have unlimited carousel rides, including face-painting for $10 — or enjoy individual rides for $3. There will be lots more fun as well, with a raffle, including some great prizes and Magical Pete, the king of amazing tricks and silly jokes will be there to entertain the children.

This is a great event that we are proud to be participating in – and we hope that all of our friends in Woodhaven and the surrounding communities will come out and support this important cause. Click here to view the official flyer for the event, please share with your friends and neighbors.
