We’ll also bring you “Live” musical performances from the David Smith Trio, and NYC’s favorite Dance Band – METROPOLIS! A Live Auction with auctioneer offering our guests various NYC sailing trips, a delicious sunset dinner for eight on-board the Barge as well as wonderful gifts and prizes for the very popular ‘Walk the Plank” and “Best Costume” of the night. Enjoy the breath taking sunset views of NY Harbor, the Statue of Liberty and the warm summer nights breeze on the pier……come on; how can you miss all that?
Yes, we guarantee a fantastic evening but what is not a guarantee is that without your support, the Lehigh Valley Barge No. 79 and the Red Hook Waterfront Barge Museum may not be able to continue this annual fundraiser in the future. So please, purchase your tickets now and share this extraordinary event with your family and friends. On behalf of David Sharps, and all of us on the Barge100 committee, thank you!
