Housing Works Endless Summer

Housing Works is turning up the heat on its summer events series featuring FOUR ways to find steals, deals, food and fun. Join us for our annual outdoor tradition as Open Air Street Fair kicks off the season. This festive all-day shopping bazaar features thousands of books, movies, CDs, and records on sale for $1 or less. Shoppers will also enjoy discounts on clothes and accessories as well as beer, barbecue, and live music. Festivities will take place June 5th at 10am on the quaint cobblestone Crosby Street outside of the Bookstore Café with performances by the Darlings, Dinosaur Feathers, Friends, Grand Rapids and The Woes.

Stay cool with savings on summer looks and accessories at select Housing Works Thrift Shops with the premiere of our “Best of Summer” event. Shop Brooklyn Heights, Upper West, Upper East, Gramercy, West Village and for a special selection of the best fashion, furniture, artwork and accessories. Shopping starts June 21st so get there early on this first official day of summer. Lines form around the block!

Join Team Housing Works for its second annual Wimbledon-themed fundraiser at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club. Wimbledon on the Water is a round-robin, mixed doubles tennis tournament to support Housing Works’ advocacy efforts for low-income and homeless men and women living with HIV/AIDS. The fee is $50 for players to register online with a $250 fundraising requirement. Champagne and strawberries will be served. Creative white tennis dress encouraged. Come as your favorite grass court player or Wimbledon Champion! The tournament begins promptly at 6pm on June 21st.

End the sizzling season with the hottest patio party of the summer – Labor of Love! Located at the Fire Island Pines, this ocean-front pool party featuring live performances and the hottest DJs, benefits Housing Works and its Brooklyn-based outreach program targeting homeless youth living with HIV or at risk of infection. The event begins Saturday, September 5th from 1:30-5pm, rain or shine. Advance Online Tickets are available.
