Tags: Summer in the City, New York City
Talk about rainy days and mondays... I woke up to a leaky ceiling in the bedroom... wxman says it's going to continue to rain... so, I will look forward to something happening near the end of the week: Friday (June 8), NYCity Parks Foundation will host its annual fundraising benefit, Summer in the City. The evening treats guests to an outdoor musical performance at CPF's celebrated Central Park SummerStage outdoor arts venue, along with a private pre-show cocktail party featuring cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and raffle prizes. It's a splendid affair.
Summer in the City is a great way to enjoy summer while helping to support City Parks Foundation and its parks programs.
This year's show will feature the funk-inflected soul chanteuse Joss Stone, the fearless rapper Common, and the powerfully expressive Ryan Shaw. The cocktail party, held in a tent adjacent to SummerStage, will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. Central Park SummerStage is located at Rumsey Playfield (72nd Street, mid-park). See you there!
