Taste of Summer for the Central Park Conservancy

Central Park Conservancy, charged with keeping the park gorgeous, will directly benefit from the funds raised at this year’s Taste of Summer for the Central Park Conservancy.

Of course, it wouldn’t be New York if the event itself wasn’t as chic as the venue.
