NEW YORK, NY – A celebrity-filled guest list will add glamour and excitement to Riverkeeper’s annual Fishermen’s Ball, which returns to the Chelsea Pier 60 dining room on Earth Day, Wednesday, Aprill 22. The evening will also feature intimate live performances by top performance artists. Recent appearances have included Lenny Kravitz and Patty Smyth.

The dinner dance begins with a cocktail reception at 6:30, followed by dinner and honors for environmental advocates who have given generously to improve the health of the earth, including “green” architect William McDonough, Majora Carter, Pete Seeger and others.

The event, which raises more than $1.5 million annually to benefit Riverkeeper’s critical, year-round environmental work, will also pay tribute to the Quadricentennial Anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage up the mighty river bearing his name.
