A Toast to Fort Tryon: Party in the Park with Live Music

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Thank you to everyone who supported fundraising for the park and its programs at A Toast to Fort Tryon Park last week! We were delighted that so many of the park’s neighbors came out in their colorful Flower Power attire on an atmospheric evening to honor Cafe Buunni owners Sarina Prabasi and Elias Gurmu. We had great music, delicious food, dancing, and fireflies for our annual fundraising event to help sustain our beloved 67-acre City, State, and National Scenic Landmark.

Dyckman Beer Co., New Leaf Restaurant, Simone Song Properties, The Bauml Family, Corcoran’s The Cornerstone Team, Evydent Dentistry, Vines on Pine, Growing Minds Therapeutics, Kismat Restaurant, and Hudson Heights Pediatrics all provided essential support. Check out these beautiful photos of the event taken by Michael Palma Mir:

All proceeds go toward sustaining the park! Benefit proceeds will help underwrite horticulture staff, provide free environmental, cultural, and fitness programs, and support targeted capital improvements in the park.
