The Hell's Kitchen Cultural Center, Inc. hopes to present it''s Sixth Annual "Rhythm in the Kitchen Music Festival"  which features musicians who live or work in the Clinton/Hell's Kitchen Neighborhood of Manhattan. Our organization and festival is run completely by volunteers. We have raised about one-third of the money we need to present our sixth festival which is tentatively scheduled for Friday and Saturday June 1st and 2nd, 2012. Other than minimal festival expenses 100% of all of the funds that we raise are paid directly to the musicians who perform in our festival. Please give as generously as you can and any money that you donate will directly help us to present our sixth festival. Thank you.
