A Benefit for the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance

The Heroes of the Harbor Awards and Parade of Boats honors extraordinary members of the New York and New Jersey waterfront community whose efforts have helped to improve some aspect of our waterfront.  It also raises awareness and critically-needed support for the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance’s work to transform our harbor into a healthy, thriving, world-class resource for all.

The Heroes of the Harbor Awards and Parade of Boats is a unique evening of fine food, drink, and entertainment set against the backdrop of the waterfront. The event is a perfect opportunity to relax, celebrate and honor some of the region's most distinguished waterfront leaders.

This year’s event will be held on October 1st at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers and will honor several people and organizations for their commitments to revitalize and improve the New York - New Jersey waterfront. 

This year MWA will honor NY1 News for its exceptional and informative coverage of Superstorm Sandy.  We will also honor Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer for her extraordinary leadership and courage in managing the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy for the City of Hoboken. Finally, we will honor the General Contractors Association for its efforts and the efforts of its members who worked tirelessly to rebuild and restore our city and region following Superstorm Sandy.

We hope that you will join us for this unique waterfront event by reserving tickets or a table today.
