As 2016 comes to a close, I'm writing with best wishes for you and your family from Coney Island USA. This was an amazing year for us and I want to thank you for being a part of it.
Whether you came to see our one-and-only Circus Sideshow, sat in the Judges' Stand at our Mermaid Parade, or took a tour of our Coney Island Museum, we are very grateful for your support of our mission of defending the honor of popular American culture.
Looking forward, 2017 will truly be an historic year for us. It marks the 35th anniversary of our Mermaid Parade and the 100th anniversary of our landmarked headquarters on Surf Avenue. I'm so excited to share these events with you and look forward to celebrating them as only Coney Island can.
As a non-profit, we rely on your support to provide these kinds of unique programming that can't be found anywhere else. I ask that you please consider making a year-end donation today to help us get the momentum going for these spectacular events.
I look forward to sharing more details and exciting news with you in the weeks to come. Thank you once again for your support and happy holidays from everyone at Coney Island USA!
