T-SHIRTS, RAFFLES TO HELP WITH 'ALTERNATIVE' COSTS

Dec. 5, 2001 – It was full moon jazz and more for last week's "Friday Night Alternative" on the deck outside The Color of Joy at American Yacht Harbor. Coming up this weekend: More of the same (with less moonlight), and who knows what else, musically speaking, with "Sunshine" Sally Smith and Marty Beechler as co-hosts.
Last Friday's gathering featured the drawing for the raffle of Jane Clemo's moko jumbie soft sculpture — and the winner was Jeannie Pepper. The month-long raffle raised $250 for Sept. 11 relief efforts.
This Friday will bring two innovations, both aimed at making FNA self-sustaining, according to organizer Corinne Van Rensselaer, who owns The Color of Joy.
The first is the introduction of the official "FNA" T-shirt, featuring artwork by Madeleine Meehan and Greg Miller. Proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go toward the goal of keeping "Friday Night Alternative" "a free community concert for all to enjoy," Van Rensselaer said.
The other is the start of a new month-long raffle, also in support of the Friday night music get-togethers. "FNA will be raffling a piece of framed local artwork every month to support the event," Van Rensselaer said. "Tickets will be available all month at The Color of Joy, and the drawing will be made on the last Friday of each month."
Proceeds from each week's raffle will be split evenly between FNA and the artist. "If not enough tickets have been sold for the artists to receive their commission, we will roll the drawings over for another month," she said.
This weekend, along with live music on the Marlin Deck overlooking the AYH marina, there will be complimentary wine, cheese and crackers. Lance from Red Hook Video "will be providing some of the wine, and maybe even a video set up apart from the music for the kids to watch," Van Rensselaer said. The event is from 6 to 8 p.m. To learn more, call 775-4020.
