The Randall’s Island Park Alliance 2021 Virtual Gala is a celebration of the critical ways we continued to serve our community throughout the pandemic, and a recognition of the longstanding partnerships and outstanding leaders that made our work possible. We are delighted to honor Aimee Boden, former Randall’s Island Park Alliance President, and Ray Selvadurai, Manhattan Soccer Club Direction of Coaching.

Despite a 35% reduction in budget due to COVID related financial shortfall, the Alliance retained all staff and remains devoted to caring for this Park. We invite all to enjoy this year’s Virtual Gala, and please consider supporting our work with a fully tax-deductible contribution.

A gift of any size will support over 300 free outdoor education, fitness and nature programs throughout the year. 

  • $1,000 supports over 7,000 students in the Waterfront Stewardship Program
  • $750 provides tools and supplies for the Urban Farm to harvest over 3,000 pounds of produce
  • $500 helps raise a flock of chickens at our Urban Farm
  • $250 plants flowers in our award-winning Water’s Edge Garden
  • $100 seeds our fields used by over 1 million New York City children
