Kite flying is a breeze, but planning and funding a summer kite-flying festival can be hard work, especially if the organizers are competing with other sponsored events.

With that in mind, several well known Rockaway associations have joined together—to avoid event scheduling conflicts, and so that money can be raised more effectively.

Potential contributors were recently invited to a Beach Club breakfast, where members of the unified group, named Collaboration for Unity in the Rockaway Community (CURC), introduced their association.
