In previous years, The Nature Conservancy asked patrons to care for nature for nature’s sake. This year, we made it clear that although nature is beautiful, it is also essential to humans. Our theme for the gala was, “The World We Depend On, Depends On Us.” On May 25th, 2016 at Ciprani 42nd Street– we helped the Nature Conservancy raise $11m at their global gala.
The event featured an 8 foot living wall, live entertainment and three videos played for a diverse audience of young bankers and senior conservationists. The late, great Bill Cunningham photographed the event– and his picture was featured in the Sunday edition of the New York Times.
