About Treasure Your Island

Treasure Your Island" was created by an ad hoc committee of individuals from cultural and recreational organizations throughout Staten Island.   Realizing that many islanders are unaware of what Staten Island has to offer, the committee created an event which would show all islanders that everything they need can be found on Staten Island.


  • To increase visitorship and use of Staten Island organizations
  • To increase volunteerism of Staten Island organizations
  • To increase awareness of Staten Island organizations
