‘Sunset In The Park’ Moved To Saturday

The annual “Sunset in the Park fundraiser for the “Friends of Tribute Park” has been moved to Saturday, June 23 at 6 p.m. due to the threat of heavy thunderstorms predicted for Friday evening.

Event coordinators said they did not want to wait until the last minute to postpone the event and bother the hundreds of people who plan to attend.

The annual fundraiser for the park, which is a memorial to those from the Rockaways who died on September 11, 2001, as well as those 343 firefighters who died trying to save them, begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. All proceeds from this popular community event go toward paying off the remaining construction debt as well as paying for ongoing maintenance of the park.
