Selle San Marco Helps to Rebuild Red Hook, Brooklyn

Join Selle San Marco and help restore Red Hook: the money raised from the on-line sale of the special Concor Light RHC will be donated to rebuild the neighborhood destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. The announcement:

Selle San Marco is touched by the tragedy that hit people of Red Hook, a post-industrial area of Brooklyn devasted by superstorm Hurricane Sandy. Our company feels particularly close to them because of the relationship with the organizers of the “Red Hook Criterium”, that have their headquarters inside the destroyed areas.
In order to help them, San Marco has launched a charity activity to raise funds for the rebuild of the neighborhood of the New York district. The whole money raised from the on-line sale of the special Concor Light RHC saddle, will be donated to Red Hook Initiative and Restore Red Hook relief efforts (www.rhicenter.org and www.restoreredhook.org), that are involved in various humanitarian activities to help people that have been most affected by the devastation and to help the small businesses reopen their doors as soon as possible.

The sale will go on for a month, starting from November 12th. To join Selle San Marco and help restore Red Hook click this link: www.sellesanmarco.it
