The evening will feature cocktails, dining, dancing and a short talk by Dr. Matthew Hare about growing oysters in the Hudson River.




On June 19, Groundwork Hudson Valley will host its annual Sunset Cruise on the Majestic Princess, which will board at 5:30 p.m. from the Science Barge, located just north of the Yonkers Pier; sail up the Hudson River to the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge; and return to Yonkers between 9 and 9:30 p.m. The evening will feature cocktails, dining, dancing and a short talk by Dr. Matthew Hare, associate professor in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University, about growing oysters in the Hudson River.

Groundwork Hudson Valley creates sustainable environmental change in urban neighborhoods through community-based partnerships that promote equity, youth leadership and economic opportunity. For almost 20 years, Groundwork has made neighborhoods more livable and sustainable through an array of on-the-ground environmental projects that directly involve local residents. It restores rivers and builds trails, parks and playgrounds, engaging community members in all its work, with a particular focus on educating and employing young people.

Proceeds from the cruise will help support Groundwork’s flagship programs. A Commander ticket ($250) includes cocktails, a buffet dinner and a raffle ticket to win dinner for two at Le Moulin Restaurant in Yonkers. A Steward ticket ($150) includes cocktails and buffet dinner. To purchase tickets, mail a check to Groundwork Hudson Valley, 22 Main St., 2nd Floor, Yonkers, NY, 10701, or visit GroundworkHV.org.
