On October 18th, 2023 we honored our wonderful partnership with LaGuardia Community College at the 2023 Tidal Toast benefit. For years the professors, students, and faculty of LaGuardia have been key advocates in fighting for a cleaner, more accessible, and more resilient Newtown Creek. Located just a block from the Dutch Kills tributary, the school has partnered with NCA, and a number of other local organizations, to pilot a variety of education, restoration, and planning projects to improve the waterway. The college truly embodies NCA’s mission to Reveal, Restore, and Revitalize Newtown Creek which is why we are honoring them with all three awards this year.
Our annual fundraiser party is focussed on celebrating Newtown Creek and our ongoing work with partners, community members and local businesses to a cleaner, more resilient, and more accessible waterway. The 2023 Tidal Toast took place on the Creek itself, aboard the Royal Princess, a chartered boat from Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
