Evening on the Lake

Evening on

the Lake



On Monday, September 19, more than 400 of Citizens Committee for New York City’s most dedicated donors and supports came together for a wonderful evening to raise funds for fellow New Yorkers.

The Central Park Boathouse was the ideal setting for guests to enjoy cocktails, dinner, and gondola rides on the lake.  We were pleased to honor our friend, Tom Califano, as well as Citizens Committee grantee, Reggie Gray and The D.R.E.A.M. Ring, for their contributions to New York City.  Sasheer Zamata and Zachary Quinto attended as special guests and remarked on the importance of Citizens Committee within the fabric of our city.

For more than four decades, Citizens Committee has worked to achieve its mission to help New Yorkers—especially those in low-income areas—come together and improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods.  In 2016 alone, we helped 419 community groups in 144 different neighborhoods, making New York City a better place to live, work and play.
