Via the EV Grieve inbox... New York Councilmember Rosie Mendez is hosting a benefit tonight from 5-10 at Tompkins Square Bagels (165 Avenue A) for East Village-based photographer Shell Sheddy.
Per the invite:
Shell Sheddy embodies the very soul of the East Village and we will gather to honor her contributions and fundraise for her endeavors and livelihood. She is an artist, activist, humanitarian and East Village cultural historian of the very highest pedigree, photographing everything from punk shows at CBGBs to political events, nightlife, streetlife, and seemingly everything in between.
"Photos by Shell Sheddy" will be on display for sale for the night, and a percentage of the proceeds from Tompkins Square Bagels during those hours will be donated to Sheddy. There is also a raffle, featuring "Dinner w/Rosie" and selected prints as prizes.
