Playground Partners Winter Luncheon

583 Park Avenue, New York

Each year, the Playground Partners of the Women's Committee of the Central Park Conservancy host the Winter Luncheon to raise funds for the daily care and maintenance of Central Park's 21 playgrounds.

Over 400 guests will gather in New York City’s beautiful 583 Park Avenue to mix and mingle, hear from a featured guest speaker, and dine on a seasonal menu. The Playground Partners Winter Luncheon was launched eight years ago with great success and continues to raise vital funds for awareness of Central Park’s beloved play spaces.

To join the Benefit Committee, please purchase a Table or Benefactor ticket by November 22, 2019.
