What happened to community use of the arena? Program for ten events will wait until second year of operations
The Arena will be available to community groups for at least ten (10) events per year, at a reasonable rate, with net proceeds from such events to be used to support non-profit community organizations.
I checked back recently. "We are in the planning stages now and we're working out the details with Barclays and FCRC before making a formal public presentation," she said.
Graduations, fundraiser don't count
I asked Daughtry if any of the arena events already scheduled or held for nonprofit organizations--the Long Island University commencement last week, the NYU-POLY commencement today, and the fundraising event next month for the Brooklyn Hospital Foundation--qualify as among the ten community uses.
