NYHS Awards Dinner
Every year, the Harbor School Awards Dinner raises a substantial portion of the funds necessary for providing the on-water and environmental enrichment programs that make Harbor School both unique and successful. The evening is particularly special because it brings together a community of educators, environmentalists, maritime professionals, and generous donors who are united on the effort to train the next generation of marine stewards.
Over 200 supporters gather at the New York Yacht Club each year to celebrate Harbor School. Attendees have included; President Bill Clinton, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Jayni and Chevy Chase, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., NBC’s Willie Geist and Savannah Guthrie, New York State Senator Daniel Squadron, and many distinguished members of NYC’s finance, environmental, legal, and entertainment community.
Annual Benefit 2017
Harbor School Awards Dinner: 2/28/17
On Tuesday, February 28th, we are pleased to host the third annual Harbor School Awards Dinner at the New York Yacht Club. We are excited to honor New York State Senator Velmanette Montgomery with the Captains Award for her leadership in the development of a maritime “cradle to career” pathway for NYC public school students; and the Marine Society of the City of New York with the Admirals Award for their long-standing support of Harbor School students. In addition to providing annual support, each year the Marine Society offers a scholarship for a Harbor School senior to continue their studies at SUNY Maritime.
