The Fund for Park Avenue celebrates tulips!

Featured image

Friends of The Fund for Park Avenue gathered at Scully & Scully to celebrate the bright orange Darwin Hybrid Ad Rem tulips that brightened the Avenue between 54th and 86th Streets.  The Tulip Party also draws attention to the work of The Fund for Park Avenue, a NYC non-profit organization that has been responsible for raising the money necessary to keep Park Avenue blooming since 1980.  Utilizing contributions from the community, The Fund is able to provide three seasonal plantings – spring tulips, summer begonias and fall chrysanthemums.

The evening featured tables designed by Cathy Graham (Second Bloom: Cathy Graham’s Art of the Table), Christopher Mason (TV Host, Author, Journalist, Songster with a #bizarreobsessionwithorange), Wendy Moonan (New York Splendor: The City’s Most Memorable Rooms), Eric Ross (Enduring Southern Homes) and Betsy Pinover Schiff (‘Tis the Season New York).

Later this month all are invited to dig up the tulip bulbs for planting in their own gardens. For more information about the Park Avenue Tulip Dig (including dates and digging instructions), please email:
