FBW’s Annual Fundraising Party
Thursday, October 23, 2014
7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
The Hoboken Elks Club
1005 Washington Street (@10th Street)
Hoboken, New Jersey
Join us for an evening of music, dancing, entertainment, fine food & drink, all for a great cause! Emily Turonis and her quintet will provide the music, and Col. John Stevens, creator of the original plan for Hoboken in 1804, will make a special appearance. Enjoy a silent auction of harbor cruises, fine wine, a signed football jersey from Eli Manning & more.* FBW will present its annual Riparian Award to honor Craig Whitaker for his special contribution to the Hudson River waterfront. Zafra Restaurant will cater the event with its Little Latin Dishes.
Our past: In 1990, the citizens of Hoboken defeated an ill-conceived waterfront development scheme proposed by the City and Port Authority. Subsequently, FBW was formed and created a vision for Hoboken’s waterfront that included a continuous, public park along the Hudson River.
Our present: Today, FBW is working to extend the exceptional features of Hoboken’s South Waterfront — the public park, the generous tree canopy, bike path and lively, pedestrian-friendly streetscape — throughout Hoboken’s central waterfront.
Our future: Utilizing the best thinking in urban and landscape design, FBW is committed to creating a continuous public waterfront park in Hoboken – a remarkable, invaluable asset for generations to come.
