Annual Spring Benefit

Thursday, May 2, 2019 | 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. | The Burden Mansion

The Carnegie Hill Neighbors Annual Spring Benefit is CHN’s major fundraiser, and always a festive evening of camaraderie among neighbors, who gather in one of Carnegie Hill’s historic venues to celebrate our community. The CHN Enrichment Award is presented for an outstanding neighborhood enhancement, and other lucky guests win raffle and silent auction prizes.

This year’s co-chairs, board member Trish Preston and CH neighbor Ranika Cohen decided to liven up the party this year, with DJ Olivier Meiji (you can hear him Saturdays at popular Upper East Side eaterie Le Bilboquet) a limited raffle, in addition to our classic raffle series of 10 neighborhood packages to take you out to lunch, in for an exercise class, or all around the neighborhood on a Classic Carnegie Hill shopping spree. Our carefully curated silent auction table boasts such priceless experiences as an intimate dinner with former FBI director James Comey and last chance weekend at The Wales Hotel.

This year, take a chance on our luxury limited raffle – only 200 tickets sold for a chance to win a stay of 7 – 10 days for six or seven guests in three one-bedroom suites in sunny Barbados! For more information on how to take advantage of this exclusive offer, please contact the CHN office for more details: 212.996.5520 or send us an email here.

Annual Meeting

Our annual meeting is a legal requirement, but members attending always enjoy refreshments and a social time, before and after a presentation given by a noted author, historian, or representative of another preservation or parks organization. Topics presented are always pertinent to Carnegie Hill, such as a famous architect or nearby Central Park projects. In addition, CHN president and executive director give a presentation about current building issues, CHN’s activities, and local news; a slate of the board of directors is elected and CHN board members are available to answer neighbors’ questions.
