Surrounded by 360 degrees of some of the best views our city has to offer, supporters joined together on Thursday, October 8th to celebrate Row New York’s highly anticipated expansion to Brooklyn. Excellence Award winners Celia Rodriguez, Gislaine Garcia, and Margaret Rajnic shared their inspiring stories and Jim Dietz, Row New York’s first Buoy Award winner, captivated and encouraged the guests with tales of his experience as a renowned rower and coach while also sharing his deep appreciation for what Row New York has done for the sport of rowing.
In addition to a cocktail reception, silent auction and a delicious dinner, guests were entertained by a spectacular performance by renowned operatic soprano Susanna Phillips and pianist Myra Huang. The evening wrapped up with an interactive and exciting Call to Action that raised over $50,000 to be used to establish the new Brooklyn location.
