    I’m so excited for this night of leisure, tribute, and fine wining and dining with the magnificent NYC skyline as our backdrop. We’ll also have live music, and be raffling prizes throughout the event. All proceeds will go to the care, beautification, and events at both Gantry State and the new Hunters Point South Park.

    You can purchase tickets early, and learn more by clicking on my name. If you have any ideas or suggestions for what we can do at these parks, an online ticket sale gives you complimentary membership to our organization. ‘Hope to see all of LIC!

    I hope both Jimmy Van Bramer and Melinda Katz stay home and don’t show their faces in LIC; those are the people to blame and are the single responsible for not having outdoor restaurants/bars in LIC.

    They request that you wear cocktail attire? Anyone have more info about that?

    Cocktail attire is preferred, but not enforced. We will be welcoming all visitors of the park to join us, so I recommend everyone arrive a little early. Nothing will beat the 70 degree weather by our beautiful waterfront, with the magnificent skyline and a brand new city park as our backdrop. Not to mention the free wine and food included with admission.
