First Annual Spotlight of the Season Sparkles Bright in LIC

On Friday, September 14, 2018 the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy held our first ever gala event, Spotlight of the Season.

The event was a wonderful celebration of the conservancy, the parks, and our community. Thank you to Donna Levinstone, Zog Sports, Bubblemaster Gabe, Melinda's Children's Parties and NYS Parks for providing activities for all ages and to Joe the Magician, Donofrio Dance Company, Cosmic Fit Club, and Noora Dance Theater for performing.

We were thrilled to be able to honor Dana Aussenberg, Vice Chair of the Gantry Parent Association, and Nest Seekers International for all the work they have done for the conservancy and the greater LIC community over the past several years.

We were also grateful to have Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, NYC Regional Director for NYS Parks Leslie Wright, Queens Parks Commissioner Dottie Lewandowski, SWA/Balsey Principal Thomas Balsey, and LIC Parternship President Liz Lusskin on hand who all shared some kind words about the conservancy.
