Party for the Park
On June 11, 2014, the Prospect Park Alliance brought together two of the Park's favorite traditions, the Spring Swing and Summer Soiree, to create the Party for the Park. Taking place at the scenic and historic Boathouse, the event raised nearly $100,000 for the Alliance’s work to preserve and maintain Prospect Park.
The evening kicked off with a special pre-party, the Lullwater Lounge, featuring live music by the Smoke Rings. Guests enjoyed tasting menus prepared by local Brooklyn chefs from Calexico, Fleisher's and Third & 3rd Whole Foods, paired with Brooklyn Brewery craft beers, spirits from Slow & Low and Ilegal Mezcal, wine by Juice Box, and specialty cocktails by Clover Club and Dutch Kills created with New York Distilling Company Gin. The main party continued the fun with music and dancing with DJs AndrewAndrew.
