Boy George Announces Free Shows for NYC Sanitation Workers
"New York's Strongest are delighted that Boy George will join us at our Family Day outing in August and perform some of his fabulous hits for our hard-working men and women and their families. Keeping New York City safe and clean is a daunting challenge – as Boy George well knows – and we welcome his generous offer to entertain those who have made our City the cleanest it has been in more than 30 years," said First Deputy Commissioner Michael A. Bimonte, who coordinates the DSNY Family Day event.
DSNY Family Day is an annual event for Sanitation workers and their families to enjoy a picnic and entertainment at the Department of Sanitation training facility in Brooklyn. This year will be the 4th Annual Family Day Outing.
