Astella Development Corporation and Brooklyn Community Services partnered to host this year's Coney Island Sand Sculpting Contest and raised funds to support individuals and families impacted by Superstorm Sandy.  There are many people in Coney Island who still need help.  All donations and sponsorships in support of the Coney Island Sand Sculpting Contest benefit individuals and families still recovering from Superstorm Sandy.

We would like to thank event sponsors for making this event possible.
