In celebration of our 20th anniversary, please consider a $20 donation to support First Descents and extend the healing power of adventure to young adults impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions.
The First Descents NYC Local Adventure Community invites you to join us for our third annual Brooklyn Bash. This year’s Bash will celebrate a Fall week of grit and gratitude as we cheer on our NYC Marathon runners and celebrate our NYC programs.
Join us as we sip on complimentary handcrafted cocktails made from the New York Distilling Company‘s own spirits, as well as enjoying delicious food, music, entertainment, and the latest FD updates!
All proceeds from this event will directly benefit local programming provided by First Descents to our ever-growing alumni community. We seek to raise $25,000 to sponsor all local adventure programs in NYC in the 2020 season.
Please note this event is for ages 18 and up.
