Each year, Playground Partners, a program of the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy, host their Winter Luncheon to raise funds to support the daily care and maintenance of Central Park’s 21 playgrounds.

Over 350 guests will gather in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel overlooking Central Park to mix and mingle, hear from a featured guest speaker, and enjoy a delicious lunch. The Playground Partners Winter Luncheon was successfully launched nine years ago and continues to raise vital funds for awareness of Central Park’s beloved play spaces.
