Save the Imani Willow Fundraiser A Great Success!

A fund raiser held on October 1st at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture raised over $5,000 to help save the Imani willow. On a beautiful sunny Sunday at this historic mansion on Prospect Park, scores of supporters gathered for music, a panel discussion and art auction. Sarah Taylor received a plaque honoring her legacy of hard work in support of the Weeksville Heritage Society and the Weeksville community. Here are a few photos from the event.
