On Aug. 26, a fire in 81 and 81A Seventh Ave. destroyed ZuZu’s Petals, Fonda Sara’s flower shop which had served the Park Slope community for 33 years.

Sara has found a new location at 374 Fifth Ave., between Fifth and Sixth streets, to transplant her blooms. To help with the renovation costs, chef Bill Snell and his wife Christine (pictured) will hold a fundraiser on Tuesday, Oct. 5, from 7 pm to 11 pm, at their restaurant Cocotte (337 Fifth Ave. at Fourth Street).

The Snells will supply French hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar to toast Sara’s next venture. Park Slope Councilman Bill DeBlasio and Borough President Marty Markowitz are scheduled to attend.

The hors d’oeuvres are free, but checks made out to ZuZu’s Petals for $100, seed level; $150, leaf; $200, petal; $250, flower; and $300, garden - or whatever you can afford - will be accepted at the party. Checks can also be mailed to ZuZu’s Petals, 81A Seventh Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11217. For more information about the fundraiser, call (718) 832-6848.
