Evening on the Lake




The 11th Annual Evening on the Lake will take place

Monday, September 14, 2020

Please see below for more information on last year's event.

Evening on the Lake was the place to be on September 9, 2019. New Yorkers packed the Central Park Boathouse to support Citizens Committee - raising over $300,000! Special thanks to honorees Heather Lennox, who received the Oz Elliott Good Neighbor Award, Bill Henrich, who received the Mollie Parnis Award for Dedication to New York City, Chairman Paul Deutch, and Co-Chairs Amy Edgy and Tracy Klestadt for making the night a success.

Guests enjoyed a performance by Citizens Committee grantee - the wonderful kids from Prototype Music- and they were spectacular! The NYC Champion Award was presented to Aleeia Abraham-Toussaint of Prototype Music. This incredible group fosters artistic talent among youth and develops their self-esteem, motivation, and civic participation. Children from Hamilton Heights Darkroom and Photography Center - another Citizens Committee grantee - took instant photos of guests throughout the evening which they took home as a souvenir of the event.
