2017 Greater Patchogue Foundation Gala Dia de los Muertos
November 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Join the Greater Patchogue Foundation and the Cemetery Restoration Committee as we celebrate the lives of residents and families, local celebrities, decorated military and sailors who all reside in the Lakeview Cemetery in Patchogue with the Latin American holiday of Dia de los Muertos on the grounds of the Patchogue Family YMCA.
Dia de los Muertos is Spanish for “Day of the Dead” and this event mirrors a popular feast celebrated in many Latin American countries to honor and celebrate those who have passed on.
Like many historic cemeteries, it is deteriorating over time due to weather, vegetation and vandals, which is why the Cemetery Restoration Committee needs support to continue to preserve, maintain and restore the cemetery grounds for the generations who reside in the cemetery and for generations to come.
There will be Latin American food, a mariachi band, beer from BrickHouse Brewery & Restaurant, coffee from Roast Coffee & Tea Trading Company, volunteers from St. Joseph’s College NY, artwork from The Patchogue Arts Council and South Bay Art Association, tours of the cementary for those who want to take the walk and more!
Tickets are $85 each.
Sponsorships and journal ads are available.
