The Concert/Auction Reviews Are In…

The Kingston Parks Movies Under the Stars Concert/Silent Auction was a Blockbuster!

Many, many thanks go out to the Movies Under the Stars Planning Committee for pulling together an event that exceeded all of our expectations.  Thanks to the wonderful performers, generous donations from area businesses and supporters, and sweat equity from committee volunteers, our event cleared $3800!  We have now exceeded $11,000 in total money raised to bring movies back to our parks this summer.

A special thanks to:

Tony and Pete Levin, Harvey Sorgen trio w/ Teri Roiger, Machon Taylor, Charlie Knicely & Bob Shaut, and Rebecca Martin for putting together a great concert

Tamme Stitt Photography for capturing it all with special attention to making us all look 10 lbs thinner.

And our Silent Auction Donors- Adam’s Fairacre Farms, Mariner’s/Little Italy, Mid-City Lanes, Skate Time 209, Fun-E Farm, Maryann DeGroodt, Alderman Debbie Brown, Janai McDonough, KoKoKobi Chocolate, ArtCraft, Keith Bennett Karate Academy, Ulster Performing Arts Company (UPAC),  Alderman At-Large, James Noble, Mario’s Trattoria,  Alderman Shirley Whitlock, Rebecca Martin, Jen Fuentes, Pine Grove Ranch, Edelweiss Soap Company, Organic Nectars, Casa Villa, Family of Woodstock, Jay Mahler/Blue 57, Larry Grenadier, YMCA, Mike Madsen, Jesica Clark, Friends of Forsyth Nature Center, Mohonk Preserve Golf Course, Bearsville Theater, Burgevin Florist, Joe Beez Subs, Monkey Joe’s, Deising’s Bakery, JJ’s Rocking Cupcakes, Michael’s Candy Corner, Carly Williams, Saker Guitars, Transworld, Time McArdle, Woodstock Chimes, Andi Turco-Levin, Rendezvous Lounge, Samuels Pub, Armadillo, Nadine Lewis, JK Wines.

Finally, the beleaguered, bedraggled and just plain exhausted Movies Under the Stars Planning Committee, with special kudos to Concert/Auction “Executive Producers” Andi Turco Levin and Janai McDonough.  There will be a little well earned butt dragging for a few more days of recovery.

Check our Sponsors Page for updates on all of our Kingston Parks Stars, Co-Stars, Also Featured, and Movies Extras.  New sponsors are joining every week and bringing us closer to our goal.  Can you smell the popcorn yet? Soon our crazy “fun”raising will come to a close, and our committee can focus on promotion and logistics – all because of our Kingston Parks Movies Super Stars.  Thanks everybody!

We’ll see YOU at the movies!
