Supplies are limited, community members are encouraged to arrive early.

"We are thrilled to once again host a Back-To-School event for the Flatbush community" said Crystal Longo, General Manager of Kings Theatre. "The reality is the costs associated with a new school year can be a big challenge for many local families. We hope by providing these much-needed supplies that students will feel prepared and maybe even a little excited to return to the classroom."

In addition to the book bag and school supply giveaways, attendees are invited to enter a free raffle for the chance to win items including tickets to the upcoming performance of R.E.S.P.E.C.T. A Tribute to Aretha Franklin at Kings Theatre on Saturday, October 8 or MasterChef Junior Live! on Sunday, October 9.

Raffle entry is free! DJ Quest is set to play music in the courtyard next to Kings Theatre starting at 11am.

"On behalf of the Church Avenue BID, Flatbush Avenue BID, and Honeydew Drop, we're gearing up for a great school year and we're glad to support this 2nd annual back-to-school community event," says Fabiola Santos-Gaerlan, owner of Honeydew Drop and Vice-Chair of the Church Avenue BID.
