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.

The CHN Breakfast Series

Thursday, May 9, 2019 | 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. | Wetherby Pembridge School

The CHN Breakfast Series was developed by two career, turned full-time moms who recognized the need for a variation from our traditional evening forum and lecture series, to accommodate neighbors with non traditional schedules. CHN has been able to capture the interest of new members, interested neighbors and potential volunteers with this series and is a way for new neighbors to meet people, make friends, and, network in interested areas or discover a new avocation from our inspiring topics.

This year’s breakfast is all about Parks. The Central Park Conservancy will fill us in on what is happening at the 96th Street playground, NY4P (New Yorkers for Parks) will introduce the new advocacy campaign Play Fair and discuss the importance of citywide parks funding, and we will update you on the progress CHN and our coalition partners have made at Marx Brothers Playground.
