El Museo Del Barrio was the place to be on Sunday, February 26 as Harlem Parks to Park program, the dance party series Sundae Sermon, took over El Museo Del Barrio in East Harlem, New York. Bridging the East and West sides of Harlem, the series united the community for an afternoon of soulful house music and education. GET DOWN partnered with Sundae Sermon to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and kickoff the Aids Walk Campaigns of FACES NY and Harlem United, two New York based HIV community-based organizations. GET DOWN helped organize the donations for the two charities and, along with Anita Bryant of A-Marketing, created goodie bags with donations from companies such as Fairway Market, Sokenbicha Teas, NY Sports Club of Harlem, Harlem Doggie Day Spa, Sesame Workshop, Land Yoga, Modell’s, A-Loft of Harlem and Jeffrey Richards Associates, producers of The Gershwins’ PORGY AND BESS.
