Neumann Leathers fundraiser
If you care about the future of downtown Hoboken, it’s recommended that you attend and support the cause!
From Tim Daly:
Emergency legal warchest fundraiser this Thursday!
When: This Thursday, August 7, 2008 (7pm to midnight)
Where: Tim Daly’s Studio, 5th floor, 300 Observer Highway
“This event is to raise emergency funds for our legal warchest!
Any contribution will get you in the door BUT a contribution over $25 (apart from art purchases or tenant dues) gets you a swanky NLTA t-shirt (normal price: $20), white on black — ladies’ tanktops too! Perfect to wear to the Zoning Board meetings, future demonstrations and civil disobedience actions!
This party/event will feature original artwork and prints for sale and auction by myself (Tim Daly) and various Neumann artists. Check www.neumanntenants.org after 6 pm Monday to see some images. On Thursday evening at 9 pm, final bids on artwork will be taken, artwork auctioned, followed immediately by loud dance music from 10:30 pm to midnight; salsa y Prince solamente!
No joke, NLTA needs to raise tens of thousands of dollars in the next few weeks to defend Neumann Leathers (the last remaining Arts and Industry building left in Hoboken) against TCR’s doomsday plan for the Neumann site. Multiple Zoning Board meetings will start August 19, and we’ll need to present our own expert witnesses on historic preservation, environmental issues, traffic and city planning.
We’ll also need a large supportive crowd at these meetings. We will attempt to predict the best times to come to meetings so your time and energy isn’t wasted in this cumbersome process.
Friends of Neumann–Now is the time!
