GIA invites you to celebrate the summer season at our annual benefit on Thursday, June 20, 2013. Join the Governors Island Alliance at the Governors Beach Club to enjoy breath-taking views of the Manhattan skyline, and mingle under the stars with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres & live music. At this year’s Gala we will honor the Bloomberg administration and Leslie Koch, President of the Trust for Governors Island, for their leadership in the ongoing development of the Island. We are also pleased to honor Arthur Imperatore, Jr., Executive Vice President, Vice Chairman of NY Waterway, for his leadership in the NY Waterfront community.
Ferries will depart from the Battery Maritime Building for the GIA Gala at 6, 6:30, 7 and 7:30. Ferries will return from Governors Island to the Battery Martime Building at 7:15, 7:45, 8:30 and 9.
GIA welcomes thousands of New Yorkers to the Island every summer with arts & educational programs. Our volunteers help stretch the capacity of government and other non-profit partners. Your support also enables us to continue our advocacy on behalf of the Island during the rest of the year.
Please contact Maya Borgenicht at maya[at]governorsislandalliance.org or 917.652.6359 to discuss supporting the event or with any questions.
When & Where
Governors Island Alliance
The mission of the Governors Island Alliance is to celebrate the Island’s rich history, create memorable parks and public spaces, and ensure appropriate reuse of the Island and its historic structures.
Since 1995, the Alliance has worked collaboratively to return the Island to the people of New York. Our concept of redeveloping the Island as a great civic space was the basis for the 2003 transfer from the Federal Government to New York and the National Park Service.
