Five weeks after 9/11, twenty of the biggest names in contemporary culture came together to raise money for the Robin Hood Relief Fund, benefiting families of those lost to the World Trade Center attacks. Organized by Paul McCartney and featuring music heavyweights like The Who, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Jay-Z, Destiny’s Child and Billy Joel, this event became one of the most successful benefit concerts in history, raising a total of over $35 million, with a hundred percent of the proceeds going to charity. Tonight, you can revisit this tremendous occasion in its entire star-studded splendor, at a free screening following an hour of free bowling (shoes included!) at Brooklyn Bowl.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the actual screening (with “full concert sound”) begins at 8 p.m. Just make sure to be at least 21 years of age, and to mention free bowling at the door. You might also want to brush up on the lyrics to this ditty by Adam Sandler, in which he — in typically silly Sandler fashion — serenades former Mayor Guliani and chides Osama Bin Laden for being a coward.
