Help Bring Back Whaleamina
It has been 16 months since Whaleamina swam away with Sandy. A group is determined to bring the beloved landmark back by holding a fundraiser concert. On Saturday, February 15th, Projects of Peace, Inc. will be holding the First Annual Rockaway Whale-APalooza at the Irish Circle at 10119 Rockaway Beach Boulevard. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert kicks off with the first act at 7:30 p.m. The fundraiser concert continues until 2:00 a.m. All proceeds will go towards helping Projects of Peace, Inc. rebuild the whale sculpture.
There will be performances by Frank Persico, The Fog, Squid, Mr. Big Deal, Rattrap Bumpkin, Grim Pickens & the High 5, the Kings Heartbeat, Knights of the Round and a DJ set by B3ar. Admission for the fundraiser is $10.
Items and baskets will also be raffled off.
