The Heroes of the Harbor Award Dinner & Parade of Boats honors extraordinary members of the New York and New Jersey waterfront community whose efforts have helped to improve some aspect of our waterfront. It also raises awareness and critically needed support for the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance’s work to transform our harbor into a healthy, thriving, world-class resource for all.
The Heroes of the Harbor Award Dinner & Parade of Boats is a unique evening of fine food, drink, and entertainment set against the backdrop of the waterfront. The event is a perfect opportunity to relax, celebrate, and honor some of the region's most distinguished waterfront leaders.
This year’s event will be held on October 6th at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers and will honor several people and organizations for their commitments to revitalize and improve the New York - New Jersey waterfront.
This year MWA will honor Sims Metal Management for their leadership in the recycling business and for their new Brooklyn waterfront state-of-the-art facility servicing the region. We will also honor the New York and New Jersey Ferry Industry, for moving people and bringing vitality to our waters and neighborhoods in good times and for being a lifeline in times of duress for all of us. Finally, we will honor Captain John Doswell for a lifetime of service to our harbor.
We hope that you will join us for this unique waterfront event by reserving tickets or a table today.
