August 26-27th 1995. Pink Umbrellas concieved & designed by Harry Bader and sponsored by Absolut was an art installation of 500 pink umbrellas that helped raise funds for awareness about Aids. DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids) and Absolut vodka joined forces together in various cities across the US with NY being the finale on this poignant tour. This started in the FIP on the above date on our beach. It truly was a historic time with the Pines community coming together to take care of their own!
