On Thursday, October 8th, Friends of Hudson River Park hosted their 17th Annual Gala at Chelsea Piers. The sold-out event raised nearly $3 million to benefit the city’s premier riverfront Park. Padma Lakshmi, host of Top Chef, served as the evening's host. Martha Stewart and Scott Lawin, Vice Chair of Friend's Board of Directors, were honored for their outstanding commitment to the Park’s development. The Gala stage welcomed many luminaries including Olympic figure skater Sarah Hughes, Senator Chuck Schumer and Late Night host Seth Meyers. The Gala was an exhilarating celebration of the Park and its generous supporters.
Hudson River Park is the longest waterfront park in the United States. Friends of Hudson River Park is an nonprofit that serves as the Park's source of fundraising, advocacy and support. For more information, click here.
