2022 City Parks Foundation Dinner & Concert Benefit at SummerStage in Central Park Announced

Honoring Anthony Mason, CBS News Senior Cultural Correspondent

and NYC GREEN RELIEF & RECOVERY FUND

 

Featuring special performances by 

Sheryl Crow 

 Nile Rodgers & CHIC

September 29, 2022

 

New York: City Parks Foundation (CPF) is pleased to announce their 2022 benefit fundraiser, taking place Thursday, September 29 in Central Park. Dinner and a concert under the stars will be held at the flagship SummerStage venue. This year’s event will honor CBS News Senior Cultural Correspondent Anthony Mason with the SummerStage Icon award and the  NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund with the People & Parks Award. Guests will enjoy special intimate performances by music icons Sheryl Crow and Nile Rodgers & CHIC with more special guests to be announced.

 

City Parks Foundation (CPF), through its Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage Festival, is one of the largest presenters of free arts and cultural programs in New York City parks, and serves 300,000 New Yorkers each year through arts, education, sports and community building initiatives. Thirty-two years ago, Kramer vs. Kramer author Avery Corman was concerned about the state of his local park and began looking for ways to improve it. Thanks to Avery, and many other dedicated New Yorkers who took action, today City Parks Foundation is dedicated to offering diverse programming to encourage residents to use and care for their local parks and green spaces, to bring these public spaces to life and make them accessible for all. 

 

City Parks Foundation is proud to honor Anthony Mason with its SummerStage Icon Award at this year’s awards ceremony, for his significant contribution to arts and culture and for his lifelong devotion to NYC’s parks. Mason is one the most experienced and versatile correspondents in television news. From 2019 to 2021, he was a co-host of "CBS This Morning" and prior to that, he was a co-host of "CBS This Morning: Saturday" for seven years. He has interviewed six U.S. Presidents and numerous senior federal officials, but Mason is perhaps best known for his interviews with many of the most prominent musicians of our time, including Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Adele, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Cher, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. He has also profiled performers Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Goldblum, Emily Blunt, Kate Winslet and Scarlett Johansson.

 

City Parks Foundation is also proud to honor NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund with the People and Parks Award for helping transform New York City with their extraordinary contribution to the stewardship of NYC’s parks and open spaces in a time of crisis. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, New Yorkers came to rely on parks more than ever before. Overnight, people suddenly needed more space for exercising, fresh air, socializing, and mental wellbeing. At the same time that usage increased, both private and public funding to maintain these spaces dried up. To address the potentially disastrous situation, a forward-thinking collective of national, family, corporate and community foundations launched the NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund to respond to the most urgent needs facing the City’s parks and open spaces, while spurring policy-makers to address ongoing systemic challenges and policy concerns. The Fund was launched in response to the efforts of the nascent Parks and Open Space Partners – NYC coalition to raise awareness of the financial impacts of the pandemic on open spaces and the many nonprofit and grassroots organizations that help keep these public spaces thriving. The NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund, administered by City Parks Foundation, has raised more than $8.4M in funding to serve organizations and communities most in need. We honor their remarkable generosity on behalf of NYC’s thriving parks and open spaces.

 

“I could not think of a better set of honorees to recognize at this year’s return of our in-person benefit.  After two years of pandemic restrictions and challenges, the role that parks play in our lives has never been more clear.  We need our open spaces for our collective community health.  The forward-thinking supporters of the NYC Green Fund saw that immediate and urgent need and responded with lightning speed to help ensure that New Yorkers had access to safe and clean parks,” said Heather Lubov, Executive Director of City Parks Foundation. “As a live music venue, we at SummerStage could not think of a better person to recognize than Anthony Mason, whose deeply personal interactions bring to life the intimate stories of some of today’s most important performing artists, highlighting the brilliance of their craft for all to enjoy and appreciate.”

 

Following dinner and the evening’s award ceremony, the crowd will be treated to special performances by Sheryl Crow and Nile Rodgers & CHIC

 

Nine-time GRAMMY AWARD recipient Sheryl Crow is an American music icon. In 2022, her life and career were the subject of a full-length documentary film entitled Sheryl, which premiered to critical acclaim earlier this year at the annual SXSW Film Festival ahead of its network premiere on SHOWTIME.  Her first nine studio albums have sold 35 million copies worldwide; seven of them charted in the Top 10 and five were certified for Multi-Platinum sales. In addition to such No. 1 hits as “All I Wanna Do,” “Soak Up the Sun” and “The First Cut Is the Deepest,” Crow has lofted 40 singles into the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Top 40, Adult Contemporary, Mainstream Top 40 and Hot Country Songs charts, with more No. 1 Triple A singles than any other female artist. Crow is known as well for her passionate support of multiple charities.  

 

 

Nile Rodgers & CHIC are truly exceptional. Rodgers is a multiple GRAMMY-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist who’s been inducted into both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. As the co-founder of CHIC, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like “Le Freak,” (the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records) and sparked the advent of hip-hop with “Good Times”. Nile transcends all styles of music and has made amongst the most important and successful albums in the careers of Diana Ross, David Bowie, Madonna, Duran Duran, Daft Punk and Beyonce, amongst a legacy that is responsible for over 500 million record sales. 

 

City Parks Foundation’s 2022 Gala is co-chaired by Lisa and David Barse, Jenny Lee and Joe Killian, and Katy and Greg Williamson. Other co-chairs include Angela Barkan, Bonnie and Steven Beer, Mia and Fergus Campbell, Chana and Cliff Chenfeld, Debbie and Richard Fife, Lori and David Moore, Claire Goodman Pellegrini and Rusty Cloud, Elizabeth Sarnoff and Andy Cohen, Rebecca and Peter Shapiro, Jean Troubh, and Louisa and John Troubh.
