LES BID Creates Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund

Later this week we’ll have a report from Friday’s workshop for small businesses seeking assistance in overcoming the after-effects of Hurricane Sandy.  But here’s one tidbit announced at the event by the LES Business Improvement District. They’re creating a relief fund — offering grants to businesses impacted by the storm.  A fundraiser in support of the program will be held at the DL (95 Delancey Street) November 27. Tickets will range from $25-100.  Small businesses on the Lower East Side will be able to apply for relief through the fund. We’ll have more details about the fundraiser and the fund in the next few days.
