To commemorate Human Rights Day (December 10th) and as part of the Snowflake Festival we’ve organised a fundraising raffle with the generous support of sixteen local 5th Ave Park Slope businesses - the total proceeds of which will be donated to GEMS.

One lucky winner will win sixteen $50 gift certificates each donated by one of the participating Park Slope businesses: Alchemy Restaurant and Tavern, Amazing Brooklyn Race, Asha Veza, Aunt Suzie's Restaurant, Beacon's Closet (Park Slope location), Bierkraft, Canaille Bistro, Element Beauty Lounge (Park Slope location),Gorilla Coffee, Luscious Food, Miriam RestaurantOlia Designs (Gift Certificate for collection at Asha Veza), SIP, Southpaw, St. Kilda and Tabeel.
