City Winery is always thrilled to have the opportunity to support local organizations and national causes. Over the past few weeks, we’ve hosted two important fundraisers.
On January 4th, neighbors and supporters of The Church Street School for Music & Art came together to help the school raise crucial funds. Organized by City Winery CEO and Tribeca resident, the benefit concert featured appearances by Jennifer Nettles, Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Ed Burns and more. $100,000 was raised to help keep the school open. The Church Street school is also a beneficiary of Dorf’s “Music Of” series.

Then, on January 15th, we hosted a fundraiser for NYC Supports the Women’s March on Washington. In collaboration with City Winery, the concert was organized by Karen Waltuch and the official local New York City Chapter of the Women’s March on Washington (WMW) and 100% of the net proceeds from the event was donated to directly to support the Women’s March on Washington. The concert featured performances by a multi-cultural lineup of NYC artists, including Yo La Tengo Mazz Swift, Ani Cordero, Larkin Grimm & Anais Maviel, Arooj Aftab and Charlotte Greve, Felice Rosser’s Faith, Pyeng Threadgill & Derek Neivergelt, Elena Moon Park, Sonia De Los Santos, and members of LADAMA, Camila Meza, Leni Stern and Kyp Malone. In addition, a sign making workshop was hosted during the afternoon.
