Startup Weekend New York is a month away (September 10 to 12), and New Work was gracious enough to open its doors to host the event. New Work City (NWC) wants to build its own self-sustaining community, where everyone who needs some legroom to work can just come in and plug in his laptop whenever they please.

September 1 is the target date to open up their new space, but renovations are still in process, and funds are still coming up a little short. So, New Work City needs your help to make it to the finish line.

You can check out their Kickstarter project where you can pledge as little or as much as you are willing to contribute. New Work City needs all kinds of stuff, from paints, chairs, lighting fixtures, to kitchen appliances (because we will never have too much espresso for the day), so pledging as little as $10 can make a huge difference. If you’re feeling a little generous, you can even pledge as much as $500 or $1000 to help out.

And to make the fundraising even more fun and exciting, New Work City’s own crazy Tony is even daring you to dare him. You can choose to have Tony write a NWC rap song to perform at the NY Tech Meetup, or appoint him chef of the day and make breakfast for all the NWC gang.

Right now, many people are putting their money on Tony’s impersonation of Lady Gaga (complete with the outfit and the song!), so if you want to see it happen, help New Work City raise some money. And make sure you’re there for the “Dare Tony” event to see what’s going to go down.
