On Aug. 26,
a fire in 81 and 81A Seventh Ave. destroyed ZuZu’s Petals, Fonda
Sara’s flower shop which had served the Park Slope community
for 33 years.
Sara has found a new location at 374 Fifth Ave., between Fifth
and Sixth streets, to transplant her blooms. To help with the
renovation costs, chef Bill Snell and his wife Christine (pictured)
will hold a fundraiser on Tuesday, Oct. 5, from 7 pm to 11 pm,
at their restaurant Cocotte (337 Fifth Ave. at Fourth Street).
The Snells will supply French hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar
to toast Sara’s next venture. Park Slope Councilman Bill DeBlasio
and Borough President Marty Markowitz are scheduled to attend.
The hors d’oeuvres are free, but checks made out to ZuZu’s Petals
for $100, seed level; $150, leaf; $200, petal; $250, flower;
and $300, garden - or whatever you can afford - will be accepted
at the party. Checks can also be mailed to ZuZu’s Petals, 81A
Seventh Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11217. For more information about
the fundraiser, call (718) 832-6848.
