We will host a fundraiser benefit for Puerto Rico relief on Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Slidin’ Dirty Schenectady (512 State Street, Schenectady). The event also serves to commemorate the agency’s sixth anniversary.
“As one of the few public relations agencies nationally with a managing principal of Puerto Rican descent, I felt compelled to do something here in New York to help. At a time when many Puerto Ricans are still without electricity, we’re especially proud Slidin’ Dirty agreed to help make this event a reality. We hope this continues to raise awareness of devastating storm effects still felt in Puerto Rico,” said Joe Bonilla, managing partner and senior media director, Relentless Awareness.
Attendees who match or exceed the suggested donation of $25 will receive their first beer, wine, or cider for free. There will be a cash bar, as well as light refreshments for all in attendance. Checks can be written directly to Unidos Disaster Relief Fund, c/o Hispanic Federation, 55 Exchange Place, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10005.
“In our busy lives, we often forget about what’s going on in the world around us. The rebuilding of Puerto Rico is an ongoing process. We turn on the lights every day and completely take for granted the fact that we always have electricity, and running water. I feel honored to take an active role in making this event a reality,” said Ty Versocki, partner and director of events and operations, Relentless Awareness.
