Mamaroneck Shares is a local not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting local charities and drawing business to our local merchants. For the second year in a row, we will be hosting "Mamaroneck Shares Block Parties" which will take place directly on Mamaroneck Avenue in the heart of the Village of Mamaroneck. The streets are shut down to vehicular traffic, and visitors enjoy the evening strolling from venue to venue, visiting our local businesses and eateries, and enjoying the free music and entertainment that is provided.
The goal of the four evenings is to raise money through a fun assortment of children's games, face painting, dunk tanks and raffle sales, to support four local charities. This year we have chosen the following organizations: At Home on the Sound, to provide assistance to aging seniors, Keep aBreast, a local "Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure" organization, Mamaroneck E.M.S., our local volunteer ambulance corp., and Pediatric Cancer Foundation, in support of childhood cancers. Last year, through these events, we raised $12,000 which was divided equally amongst our recipients.
This year our FUN +FREE block parties will take place on the following dates:
Thursday July 14th- "International Night"
Thursday July 28th- "Country Western Night" with square dancing + a line caller
Thursday August 18th- "50's Night"
Friday September 9th- "Paint the Town Pink" dedicated to breast cancer awareness
Come spend a lovely evening in our friendly village for a good cause! The more people who attend, the more support we can give to these amazing groups who do so much for our community.
