A Central Park West Celebration to Benefit The Nature Conservancy

A Central Park West Celebration to Benefit The Nature Conservancy

A Central Park West Celebration to Benefit The Nature Conservancy's Work to protect the Heart of New York took place on June 8th, 2010 in NYC.

Keith Monda, former president of Coach, and his wife, Linda, hosted The Nature Conservancy's most recent celebration at their fabulous Central Park West home in NYC. This fête benefited New York State's most treasured lands and waters and highlighted the Conservancy's Heart of the Adirondacks project. Amidst the clinking of glasses, the evening raised over $140,000 for the protection of lands and waters across New York.

Special guest, Hall of Fame goalie for the New York Rangers, Mike Richter, also attended this event, along with over 60 other important figures in conservation. Set against the backdrop of contemporary pieces by artists such as Louise Nevelson, Frank Stella and Bill Thompson, guests learned about The Nature Conservancy's historic acquisition of 175,600 acres of forestland in the heart of the Adirondack Park, and the work that the organization is doing to preserve these lands .

Hailed as "A Deal Worth Cheering" in The New York Times, The Nature Conservancy's acquisition and subsequent work to protect these pristine forestlands has created a legacy for those who are concerned about clean water, outdoor recreation, tourism, sustainable forestry and pristine beauty.
