A road in Houston post-Hurricane Harvey.

A bevy of Coney Island businesses and organizations – big and small – banded together in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and have raised over $27,000 for Houston through various collection projects.

Participating businesses included Applebee’s Grill & Bar, the Brooklyn Cyclones, Coney Island Brewery, Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park, Gargiulo’s Restaurant, Luna Park, Nathan’s Famous, the New York Cosmos, Paul’s Daughter and Totonno’s.

Proceeds raised by local businesses will be donated to the Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, while the proceeds raised by the Brooklyn Cyclones will go to the Minor League Baseball Charities’ relief efforts.

“We are proud to have brought together a variety of Coney Island businesses to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Harvey,” said Alexandra Silversmith, executive director of the Alliance for Coney Island. “We hope these funds will assist in the recovery and rebuilding efforts in Houston and are a small token of support for the city.”
