Tidal Toast 2023!

Date: 10/18/2023
Time: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: TBA

Join NCA for our annual benefit, celebrating Newtown Creek and raising funds to support our vital work advocacy, education, and stewardship work. This year we are thrilled to be celebrating our wonderful partnership with LaGuardia Community College.

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. 

Stay tuned for an upcoming announcement about our *special surprise location*, a link to purchase tickets, as well as opportunities for sponsorship and volunteering!
