fundraiserThe Port Washington Crisis Relief Team (PWCRT), which was formed by residents after Hurricane Sandy, raised about $2,000 during its first fundraising event in early November.

The money is being used for operational costs and emergency supplies.

The fundraiser had a costume theme, attracting vampires, Kardashians, hippies and more.

Entrance fees and a silent auction raised the funds to support PWCRT initiatives, all of which are focused exclusively in Port Washington. Suzanne and Peter Grabiner, won the silent auction and donated the full proceeds back the PWCRT.

The PWCRT came together soon after Hurricane Sandy left most of Port Washington with no power and considerable damage. The group felt there should be an entity that could be a resource when Port Washington faced another emergency.

The Port Washington Crisis Relief Team has eight board members and about 100 registered volunteers. The board’s president is Rob Seiden of Port Washington.

Organizers of the fundraising event were Randy and Michelle Shain, Gail Seiden and Joe Cohen. Many individuals and businesses donated time, products and services. They include Port residents Viv Moy, Debbie Greco Cohen, Gary Cohen, Hugh Colocott, Jon Liegey, Marion Cohen, Heidi and Dave Jarach, Debbie and Jack Mishan, Chris Nadolne, Shari and Rob Shedrosfky, Robin Sigman and Jane Walsh. Businesses that helped out included The Training Station and Ayhan’s Mediterranean Marketplace.
