Meetup Description: Recycling Awareness Benefit
A fundraiser to help support the activities of the Office of Recycling Outreach and Education (OROE) a program of the Council on the Environment of NYC (CENYC).

Join CENYC aboard the Queen of Hearts--a biodiesel-powered, three-level paddlewheel boat--for a cocktail cruise featuring stunning views of the NYC skyline, live band "Old Rugged Sauce" and delicious Greenmarket-inspired tastings!

Get ready for our silent auction featuring original art work, yoga classes, a solar back pack, a 2 hour composting/permaculture consultation and more!

All proceeds benefit Council on the Environment of New York City (CENYC) to support the activities of its Office of Recycling Outreach and Education (OROE).

Why they need our support?
CENYC has been promoting recycling and waste reduction at NYC public housing buildings in Manhattan through a position created with a one-year grant from the Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board. But the funding for this position ends on June 1, 2009. Your support will allow us to expand our scope to increase recycling in public housing throughout the five boroughs, to expand composting, and to provide additional opportunities to collect items that are not included in the curbside recycling program, like textiles and electronics. Council on the Environment of New York City, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and as such, can accept privately raised funds.

Honorable Congressman Michael McMahon
Edward Skyler, Deputy Mayor for Operations
Anthony Pratt, CE0, Pratt Industries

Cruise the Hudson River and New York Harbor featuring scenic views of Manhattan, aboard the Queen of Hearts, a 3-level paddlewheel ship.
