Will Skate For Change: Coney Island Roller Queen Drumming Up Cash For Rink

Coney Island merchant Dianna Carlin continues her quest to reopen her Lola Staar Dreamland Roller Rink in the abandoned Childs Restaurant building with the first of two fund-raisers tonight.

Ms. Carlin is trying to raise the necessary funds for an assembly permit to cover the whole 60,000-square-foot building — the cost of which is considerable.

Tonight’s benefit, a 1920s-themed soiree with 3-D projections of Coney Island’s heyday, takes place at 8 at Peggy O’Neils at 1904 Surf Avenue.

The second benefit is a burlesque show, including a performance by Brooklyn’s own Angie Pontani, scheduled for 8:30 p.m. on Monday, June 15, at Superfine, 63 York Street, in Dumbo.

Suggested donation for each event is $10 to $20.
