Immigrant Families Together presents “Dining for Justice” A food hall fundraiser with the best of Queens restaurants supporting the reunification of families detained at the border. On the waterfront at Sound River Studios in Long Island City, Queens. Tickets are $125. Children under 12 are free.
Since June 2018, Immigrant Families Together has responded to the family separation crisis caused by the zero tolerance policy and immigration detention by raising funds and posting bond for more than 70 parents, grandparents, and older siblings. But that's just the first step. Once the adult is freed from immigration detention, IFT provides ongoing support to families, ensuring that they have the resources that they need to build a safe, healthy, and stable life while they are pursuing their asylum claims.
Buying a ticket to this event gets you unlimited access to 25 chef, beer and wine tasting stations. With live music from Seth Goldberg and MG4. The chefs and restaurants are mainly Queens based but some come from as far as New Jersey, Philadelphia and Virginia. The chefs and businesses are donating 100% of their efforts, food and products.
