Sunset Soirée on Governors Island

Jul 31, 2018
6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

On Tuesday, July 31, 2018 the Friends of Governors Island hosted the first-ever Sunset Soirée at the Island’s newest attraction, Collective Governors Island. Over 200 guests joined us for a festive evening of creative cocktails, great company and a view of the sunset unlike anywhere in NYC! Check out more photos from the event.

Best of all, it was a party for a good cause! Ticket sales directly supported the Friends of Governors Island’s mission to ensure the Island remains a vibrant public resource for all New Yorkers.

A special thank you to the generous supporters who made this event possible:
Collective Governors Island, New York Water Taxi, Brooklyn Brewery, Earth Matter, Monkey Shoulder Whisky, and Reyka Vodka and Acker Merrall & Condit for making the evening so refreshing.
