Last night, men and women all over the country came out to celebrate National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.
The annual event is held throughout thousands of precincts nationwide, and brings community members closer to the servicemen and women who protect them every day, in a light and fun environment.
Gina Argento and her team at Broadway Stages, sponsored this year’s event with the 94th Precinct in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, which took place at Lorimer Street, between Meserole Avenue Calyer streets. In addition to serving tons of food to hundreds of families – adults and children alike – they also brought lots of fun attractions for all to enjoy, including amusement park favorite water-jet game, and several bouncy castles and slides.
Across the five boroughs, thousands of people came out to celebrate and enjoy the evening with their local precinct, and embraced the idea of community and law-enforcement unity, getting to know your neighbors, and sending a message about neighborhood unity and safety. Many celebrations turned into block parties with games, rides, live music, performances, food and more.
“It’s such an honor to be able to give back to these men and women who literally put their life on the line every day, to protect us,” said Argento, CEO of Broadway Stages. We’ve been sponsoring this event for the past several years because we believe it is so important to bring the community together with our police force in a positive way, to inspire and enhance the relationship between our local law-enforcement and the community.”
The evening ended with a showing of the brave servicemen and women who work to keep the local communities and families safe. They were greeted with rounds of applause by everyone in attendance in a show of gratefulness and thankfulness for everything that they do, and for dedicating their lives to the safety and well-being of the community.
