Raising Funds For Hudson River Park

My offices in the historic Starrett Lehigh building in New York City, overlook the mighty Hudson River and the beautiful Hudson River Park.  As a neighbor of the park, I see first-hand the rich diversity of activities the park has to offer.  I enjoy walking through the park and visiting the park’s playgrounds with my grandchildren.  Many of my employees use the bike paths to commute to work.  It’s also a great place to enjoy a picnic lunch on pleasant days.  I think Hudson River Park is so special that I even joined the board of the Friends of the Hudson River Park to help keep this wonderful space available to the public.

The Friends were looking for a unique way to raise some funds and to highlight all of the ways you can use the park.  They asked board members and supporters to auction off some time - sharing in their favorite activities.  I’m offering a two-hour walk, exploring the park and what is growing there.  These items are available to bid on until Thursday afternoon.  Please visit charitybuzz now to bid!
