An acrylic painting will be raffled off Sunday to benefit the victims of a massive fire that tore through a Jackson Heights apartment building in April.
The raffle will take place at the Queens Pop-up Market– a market that will feature about 30 vendors– that is being held from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights, located at 37-06 77th Street, on July 25.
Raffle tickets are priced at $5 each, with a painting of the Empire State Building at sunset—by Queens artist Rafael Rivera—going to the winner. The raffle proceeds will be donated to the victims of a fire that destroyed two apartment buildings located at 89-07 and 89-11 34th Ave on April 6.
