It’s been an exciting month here on Queens Boulevard!
The Courtyard has teamed up with nine other pubs/bars/restaurants to form Sunnyside’s Boulevard Bars. Dedicated to our neighborhood and our customers, our mission is to elevate our community by utilizing our joint efforts to organize monthly events that bring people together, give back to local organizations, and keep locals and visitors alike up-to-date about what’s happening in Sunnyside.
Sunnyside’s Boulevard Bars include: The Courtyard, Bar 43, Molly Bloom’s, PJ Horgan’s, Sidetracks, Maggie Mae’s, Arriba Arriba, The Gaslight, Bliss Street Station, and McGuinness.
Our first event, dubbed Sunnyside’s first ever Santathon, took place this past weekend and was a huge success! We raised $4,520 to buy toys for kids in Queens, Brooklyn, and the Rockaways. We contributed to St. Teresa’s, St. Raphael’s, and the 108 Police Precinct’s toy drives and also donated toys to the Angel Guardian Orphanage in Brooklyn.
In case you missed it, Santathon was a pub crawl and Christmas fundraiser unlike any Queens Boulevard has seen before. To partake in the festivities, all you had to do was buy a $10 wristband, dress in your Santa best, and enjoy $3 drink specials at any participating bars. We also encouraged everyone to bring a new toy with them that we could then donate to the toy drives.
We couldn’t have been more thrilled with the support we received for our first event and the excitement that’s already building about our next one. Stay tuned…the best Queens Boulevard has to offer is yet to come!
