09 Jun 2023 New York City Police Foundation’s 2023 Annual Gala
On Thursday, June 8th over 1,000 supporters of the New York City Police Foundation gathered at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to celebrate the Foundation’s Annual Gala. Marc Holliday, Chairman and CEO of SL Green Realty Corp., served as our 2023 Gala Honoree, and heroic members of the NYPD were recognized throughout the evening for their exemplary public service and bravery in the line of duty. This year’s Gala raised critical funds to support NYPD public safety programs and initiatives that build bridges between the NYPD and the communities they serve.

Sewell, Benjamin J. Winter, Vice Chairman, NYCPF Board of Trustees, and The Honorable Eric Adams, Mayor of the City of New York
