Klaus Biesenbach Holding Sandy Relief Fundraiser at the Standard on Saturday

On Saturday, November 17, Klaus Biesenbach, along with The Standard and Opening Ceremony, are taking their plight to the Top of the Standard for “A Sandy Relief Effort,” a benefit fundraiser for Rockaway Relief. There’s a $30 minimum donation at the door and all of the proceeds will go to Rockaway Relief. What better way to spend a Saturday night out than to do it for a good cause?

In the past few weeks since Hurricane Sandy ravaged the Rockaways, the MoMA PS1 director and MoMA chief curator at large has been rallying his network — which includes bold-name creatives like James Franco, Marina Abramovic, and Lady Gaga — to head out there each weekend to bring food and supplies and to help clean up the destruction. The cause is close to Biesenbach, who has a home there.

Details for tomorrow night’s party are below:

The Top of the Standard, 442 West 13th Street
