Join The Friends of Governors Island on Tuesday, October 22 to celebrate two remarkable individuals who have played major roles in the Island's growth and success: Marc Ricks and Nanette Smith. Marc Ricks' passionate commitment to Governors Island as Chair of the Friends' Board of Directors has helped the Friends significantly grow its support for the Island and vastly expanded its community of volunteers and supporters. The Friends is also proud to present the inaugural Governors Island Service Award to Nanette Smith and the Bloomberg employee volunteers, in honor of their dedication to pro bono service on the Island and around the world. Thanks to Marc and Nanette's leadership, thousands of volunteers have donated over 40,000 hours of service on Governors Island, making a major impact on the Island's green spaces and ensuring that the new park is greener, healthier and more welcoming. Tickets and support packages are available for purchase here with a credit card, or via check or wire transfer through Friday, October 18.
