Spring has sprung and we’re moving full steam ahead to the summer season. You know, the time we wait for all year long. From rooftop hopping during the week to planning our weekend getaways, the weather makes us all crazy and it will be here before you know it.

New York Events is constantly on the hunt for things to do in the summer; whether it’s an outdoor movie, kayaking or just lounging in Central Park, being outside is what we strive for. Let’s take it a step further. We’re on an island, so why not party on the water?! Yes, we mean that quite literally. And, we found the perfect organization for it – The New York Harbor Sailing Foundation.

The New York Harbor Sailing Foundation’s mission is to foster and promote amateur sailing of national and international importance in New York Harbor. New York Harbor is experiencing a renaissance. Recreational sailing has returned after an absence of many decades. The New York Harbor Sailing Foundation is proud to help lead the way. By bringing important sailing events to the harbor, the Foundation is increasing the awareness of all New Yorkers in our great recreational resource.

Okay, so what about the event? The Benefit Committee and the NY Harbor Sailing Foundation are hosting the 19th Annual Sailors Ball! The event is held to raise money for “Operation Optimist” the largest junior sailing programs in the New York harbor. It’s for a great cause and totally aligns with your mission of making New York City a vacation all summer long. If you don’t know about this event, The Sailors Ball is one of our city’s largest celebrations of Spring. It has become a NYC institution. Every year, about 1,000 sailing enthusiasts attend this fun black tie party.

The event takes place on Friday, April 29th at the Down Town Association located at 60 Pine Street. Put on your finest as this black tie affair includes open bar and light hors d’oeuvres. There will be dancing all night long in many themed rooms including the secret Silent Disco room.

The best part is that you can get in for less than 100 bucks and contribute to the cause! Tickets are still available for $95 and are on sale until April 26. After that, it will cost you $120 at the door (if there is availability).

Always considered one of the best black tie parties of the year. Celebrate spring and help raise money for Operation Optimist. Tickets for the 19th Annual Sailors Ball are now on sale at http://nyharborsailing.com/sailors-ball/.
