On Tuesday, April 25, 2017 New Yorkers from across the city will gather for City Harvest’s Evening of Practical Magic, our 23rd annual gala honoring the City Harvest supporters whose efforts have played a significant role in the fight against hunger in New York City.

We are pleased to honor Board member Michael Evans and his wife Lise with the Harry and Misook Doolittle Heart of the City Award and our Food Council Chairman Chef Geoffrey Zakarian with the Mnuchin Family Award for Excellence. Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, will be presented with the City Harvest Award for Commitment.  Each of these awards celebrate longtime, dedicated partners who strengthen the impact City Harvest has throughout New York City.

The gala, to be held at Cipriani 42nd Street, will raise funds to support City Harvest’s work and will feature a special night of cocktails, followed by an elegant dinner accompanied with entertainment and live auction. In 2016, the event attracted over 600 people and raised $2.2 million, enough to rescue eight million pounds of food to help City Harvest fight hunger in New York City.
