Join Bette Midler, Jon Bon Jovi, and friends for New York Restoration Project’s biggest and most ghoulish night of the year, Hulaween to benefit on Monday, October 30. That’s right! The man whose name is synonymous with the most devilish of titles like Bad Medicine, Livin’ on a Prayer, and Wanted Dead or Alive will be rocking the house to over 700 of NYRP’s closest friends amid the magnificent Gothic architecture of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. This year, our theme is inspired by the surreal Renaissance masterpiece, The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch.
NYRP’s founder, THE DIVINE MISS M, BETTE MIDLER herself will be performing her famous parody from Hulaweens’ past, while Dita Von Teese, “The Queen of Burlesque” dazzles the audience during cocktails. The critically acclaimed and hilarious comedienne Judy Gold will serve as our Mistress of Ceremonies to skewer the crowd with laughter, while the world-renowned designer and Hulaween costume judge Michael Kors casts his judgment down upon all attendees. Meanwhile, celebrity DJ and tastemaker DJ Runna will be cranking out the tunes to let your wildest demons roam free on the dance floor.
And last, but certainly not least, the evening will be graced by our divine honorees – ERIC SCHMIDT, Executive Chairman of Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc., and DAVID EVANS SHAW, Managing Partner of BlackPoint Group. Bette will present Eric with NYRP’s Wind Beneath My Wings Leadership Award and David will receive our Green God Award for their outstanding environmental stewardship and the ability to affect innovative change.
Danny Meyer’s renowned UNION SQUARE HOSPITALITY GROUP (of Gramercy Tavern fame) has concocted a feast… should you dare to take a bite, with flavors ranging from fruit found in the Garden of Eden, to the rib of Adam, and a tart with citrus flames summoned from the pits of hell.
