A little drizzle could not put a damper on the festivities. The annual Toast To Fort Tryon benefit bash did not, as usual, disappoint. Event goers were treated to fine wines, delectable food and craft beers courtesy of the Dyckman Beer Company. By the way, you have to try their latest offering; the Suave IPA. The Live Latin Jazz set by Ran Kan Kan was the perfect soundtrack for a truly special gathering dedicated to sustaining the majestic Fort Tryon Park. This year’s honorees were Marcela Xavier, Liz Ritter, P. Ricardo Brown, and Lourdes Rodríguez. Neighborhood stalwart and American treasure, Dr. Ruth, also joined in on the celebration. Funds raised will help maintain this Uptown treasure, underwriting horticulture staff, free environmental, cultural and fitness programs, and targeted capital improvements in the park. Great food, great libations and a great cause, it really doesn’t get better than that.
