The gala, according to press notes, hopes to raise "critical unrestricted funds for the park workers, maintenance, plant materials and emergency needs which collectively make the park a favorite retreat for New Yorkers."
In a previous statement actress Scott said, "I remember making out with a 21-year-old guy named Patrick, along the Hudson, right up there by 72nd Street when I was 15 (I told him I was 19, I don't think he cared either way). And there was only this little patch of green, which was all worn in from all the other kids making out there. All along the rest of the shore was trashed, destroyed, wasted. But kids like Patrick and me would travel up from downtown just for that patch of green, and the memories we could make there. I'm so happy we're giving our children a great, green, safe and clean place to make out...when they're old enough. Like 30."
In addition to the performance, the gala also features a live auction, hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, dinner and dessert.
Tickets, priced $500 and $1,000 per person, are available by contacting Liz Hydes at (212) 370-8070 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded in 1986, Riverside Park Fund is the park's non-profit conservancy organization.
