Matthew Broderick Will Be Honored at Friends of Hudson River Park Gala 2016

Gala Co-Chairs Mia Jung & Scott M. Lawin, Sukey & Michael E. Novogratz
Megan Walsh Shaoul & Ben Shaoul, and Diana L. Taylor have announced the Friends of Hudson River Park Gala 2016, hosted by Harry Connick, Jr.

The event will honor Matthew Broderick, Assembly Member Richard Gottfried, and Paula Madoff. CeeLo Green will also perform.

Join Friends of Hudson River Park as they pay tribute to their honorees' accomplishments and their commitment to Hudson River Park, the city's premier waterfront park, which attracts millions every year to its reconstructed piers, educational programming and limitless recreational activities. As this nearly 550-acre park and estuarine sanctuary receives no public funding for its annual operating budget, your support is crucial to guarantee that this vital destination and urban oasis continues to flourish and grow.

The evening, produced by Josh Wood Productions, is slated for Thursday, October 13 with cocktails by the carousel, Pier 62 in Hudson River Park at 6 p.m., dinner and auction at Pier 60 starting at 7:30 p.m., and dessert and performance at Pier 60 at 9:30 p.m.

Tickets & Tables: (212) 219-0111 x 7008, or FoHRP@stampeventco.com. Visit hudsonriverpark.org/gala for more information.
