Whale Of A Night
Whale-a-palooza, a musical benefit to raise awareness and raise funds for a new “Whalemina” for the Rockaways, went off as scheduled on Saturday, February 15th, at the Irish Circle.
The beloved sculptured whale was washed out to sea during Hurricane Sandy.
“We had a great time even though Mother Nature wasn't very nice!” said co-organizer Michael Benedetto.
Despite a heavy snow, the event had a good turn out and the enthusiastic audience enjoyed a great night.
“That being said, the focus was more so on the introduction of our organization (Projects of Peace) as well as the Rockaway whale project to the local communities,” Benedetto added.
Musical guests included Frank Persico, The Fog, Squid, Mr. Big Deal, Grim Pickens, Walker and the Brotherhood of the Grape, and Rattrap Bumpkin.
