This year I’ll be attending the New York Restoration Project Spring Picnic at Morris-Jumel Mansion. I’m being honored along with Richard Gess of Home Depot, and the event will be hosted by Sandra Bernhard. Additionally, Streetbird will be catering the evening, so you know the food and drinks will be exceptional.

Celebrate the start of summer by supporting NYRP’s work in parks and community gardens throughout New York City. You can visit their website for more information and tickets.
