SIGN UP NOW TO JOIN FHL'S SUMMER BENEFIT HOST COMMITTEE

We're bringing the Summer Benefit back to the High Line neighborhood.
On Wednesday evening, June 20, we'll meet for cocktails at the new Frank Gehry-designed IAC building. Then we'll cross 19th Street for dinner at David Zwirner gallery. After dinner, join us for desserts, dancing, and late-night brasserie fare at the Highliners Summer Party, which will be held back at IAC, hosted by our new young supporters group, the Highliners. Admission to the Highliners Summer Party is included with a table or dinner ticket purchase, or you can buy a separate ticket just to the Highliners Summer Party.

And back by popular demand: the High Line umbrella—a new, artist-designed version is this year's event gift.

There are several ways to help and be listed on the invitation:
• Highliners Summer Party host (buy a $250 ticket—dinner not included; party starts at 9:30 PM)
• Dinner host (buy two $1,000 dinner tickets)
• Benefit committee and table host (starting at $15,000)

To be listed on the invitation, please contact Tara Morris at tara@thehighline.org or (212) 206-9922, or click here to buy your tickets online before the end of the day Monday, May 7.

We are only mailing Summer Benefit invitations to our current financial supporters. If you are not currently a donor and would like to receive a mailed invitation, please contact Tara Morris at tara@thehighline.org or (212) 206-9922.

Special thanks to our Benefit Sponsors:
