NYRP’s Hulaween Gala

NYRP’s annual Hulaween gala will return on Friday, October 27, 2023. Save the date and stay tuned for exciting updates on this year’s honorees, entertainment, and ticket sales.

Thank you to everyone who made our 2022 Hulaween gala a wicked success! Because of your generous support, we raised over $2 MILLION to fund our work in community greens spaces citywide.


“New York Restoration Project’s Hulaween and the Seven Deadly Sins brought down the house! Our much-anticipated annual gala never ceases to raise both critical funds and awareness of NYRP’s cleaning and greening work throughout our city,” said NYRP Executive Director Lynn Bodnar Kelly.

Emcee Kerry Coddett welcomed guests, and global pop sensation Ava Max had us on our feet with her international hit “Sweet but Psycho” and latest single “Million Dollar Baby.”

Congratulations to our honorees Samuel M. Ashner (Greed God Award), Jane Krakowski (Wind Beneath My Wings Award), the Hon. Ritchie Torres (Green Visionary Award), and Sondra Wenger (Green Goddess Award).

Thanks to Michael Kors and Lance Le Pere for once again bringing their discerning eyes as the judges of our annual costume competition.

Drag performer Thorgy Thor returned as this year’s fabulous Red Carpet Correspondent, providing fans an exclusive virtual look behind the scenes all evening long. Check out NYRP’s Instagram to relive all the fun of the night!
