Halloween hero: Generous donor saves Greenwich Village parade
Jason Feldman heard that the parade might not go on this year due to lack of funds and felt called to donate, Via NY Daily News
Last year, the parade, like so many events, was canceled because of the pandemic. This year, ghouls and goblins got the green light to gallivant through Greenwich Village, but organizers didn’t have enough time to raise the money.
That was before Feldman stepped in with $150,000 to save the spooky spectacle.
