Queen of Astoria 2nd Annual School Supply Drive


“Genius is in the idea. Impact, however, comes from action.” 

For the last 7 years, it’s been a pleasure to watch how adopted Astoria, Queens resident Ashley Dean has rallied the folks of this borough with a multitude of different community events.

I’ve been inspired with how smoothly she can transition from organizing a St. Patrick’s Day bar crawl on the outskirts of Little Egypt to creating a monthly birthday celebration for the children of the Pan Am Hotel homeless shelter in a largely ignored section of Elmhurst.

And now with summer fading fast, and the school year just weeks away, Ashley represents for her Astoria neighborhood yet again, by presenting her 2nd Annual Queen of Astoria School Supply Drive & After Work Mixer.

Join us this Thursday evening at August 15th 2019 at Katch Astoria as we collaborate with @QofAstoria for an awesome night of fun that will also benefit the young participants of Queens Community House.

Suggested Donations: Pens, Pencils, Highlighters, Calculators, 3-Ring Binders, Folders, Loose Leaf Paper. In lieu of school supplies, a monetary $5 donation is suggested. If you cannot attend, donations will be accepted until tomorrow Wednesday August 13th at Mount Sinai Queens locations.

Music by DJ Ray BLK.

Event co-sponsored by Queenscapes, Katch Astoria, Escape2NY, Dogfish Head, Mount Sinai Queens.
