Gloria Gaynor headlines Boogie Frights Hulaween Friday, October 29th at Cipriani South Street to benefit The New York Restoration Project (NYRP).
October 31, 2021: Disco legend and two-time GRAMMY Award winner Gloria Gaynor will headline Boogie Frights Hulaween, the 25th Annual Hulaween Bash to benefit the New York Restoration Project, October 29 at Cipriani South Street. Bette Midler, currently in pre-production for Hocus Pocus 2, is unable to attend this year’s event. As Founder of NYRP, she continues to enthusiastically support the organization and this event and will be virtually co-presenting the awards to the two honorees via video during the evening. Lance Le Pere will receive the Wind Beneath My Wings Award for his longstanding support of NYRP and Miriam Wheeler, Co- head of the Americas Real Estate Financing Group at Goldman Sachs, will receive the Green Goddess Award for her commitment to serving underserved communities in New York City.
Hulaween is one of New York City’s most anticipated Halloween parties every year. Described as one of the “most fashionable, talked-about and dress-to-impress”parties in NYC by The New York Times, the star-studded costume gala raises crucial funds for NYRP’s work cleaning and greening the city. Michael Kors, fashion designer and NYRP Trustee, will judge the annual Costume Competition and Mario Cantone will serve as the evening’s emcee. Thorgy Thor of Rupaul’s Drag Race will serve as this year’s fabulous Red Carpet Correspondent.
New York Restoration Project (NYRP) is a non-profit organization driven by the conviction that all New Yorkers deserve beautiful, high-quality public space within ready walking distance of their homes. Since its founding in 1995 by Bette Midler, NYRP has planted trees, renovated gardens, restored parks, and transformed open space for communities throughout New York City’s five boroughs. As New York’s only citywide nature conservancy, NYRP brings private resources to spaces that lack adequate municipal support, fortifying the City’s aging infrastructure and creating a healthier environment for those who live in the most densely populated and least green neighborhoods.
