Just saw on the Brooklyn Daily Eagle that two longtime collaborator/partners of Dance Theatre Etcetera were recognized for their work in Brooklyn. The 5th Avenue Committee has joined DTE at our annual Red Hook Fest in the past, and
was honored by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation as a “Neighborhood Builder,” winning $200,000 in unrestricted funding.
F.A.C. is an organization that advocates for affordable housing, also offering job training programs and assisting in community organizing.
Jill Eisenhard of the Red Hook Initiative was also honored as a “Local Hero.” No surprise that Jill donated her award to the organization she works so hard for, as RHI continues to look ahead to its new, permanent home on Hicks Street.
Congratulations to Jill and everyone at the 5th Avenue Committee!
