New York City Spring Benefit

 

 

YOU’RE INVITED TO AN EXCEPTIONAL EVENING IN SUPPORT OF
AN EXCEPTIONAL PLACE...

Reimagined for 2019, this year’s event promises to breathe fresh air into our annual city gathering. City Winery provides the perfect ambiance in addition to sumptuous food and wine. Our musical guests will offer entertainment with a laid-back vibe. You need only to bring lively conversation, laughter and your love of the Preserve. Together, it all adds up to one fabulous night! The evening starts with cocktails from 6 to 7 pm where you’ll have time to unwind and relax with dinner immediately following. We’ll highlight our conservation and stewardship efforts at historic Duck Pond with a brief live appeal. Finally, we’ll end the evening with dessert and entertainment by Roscoe & Etta, featuring seasoned singer-songwriters Maia Sharp and Anna Schulze.

We hope you’ll join us, along with your friends and family members, for a refreshing taste of the Gunks in Manhattan!
