Brooklyn Bridge Park waterfront gala raises record $1.35 million.
In a night full of celebrities and New Yorkers alike, the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball near Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 2 basketball courts, raised a record $1.35 million for the park Thursday night.
The event, organized by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, was hosted by television and film star Jon Hamm with a musical performance from Grammy-winner Norah Jones.
The fifth annual event of its kind raised money to support over 600 activities and events at the park, which include kayaking, waterfront workouts and environmental education, according to a statement.
The park’s international acclaim brought 170,000 visitors to Conservancy events in 2017 so far, with a total of 1.6 million people taking advantage of the programs.
The Conservancy honored Douglas Durst, chairman of The Durst Organization, for his longstanding commitment to sustainability and the environment. The Conservancy also honored Hank Gutman, chairman of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, who has been deeply involved in the effort to build Brooklyn Bridge Park since his appointment to the board of the original Brooklyn Waterfront Local Development Corporation in 1998.
Other guests at the gala included, Mayor Bill de Blasio, host of CNBC’s “Mad Money” Jim Cramer, NBA star Mike Dunleavy, actress Keri Russell and her boyfriend actor Matthew Rhys.
2017 Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy Brooklyn Black Tie Ball.
Like last year Keri and Matthew attended again Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy Brooklyn Black Tie Ball. Keri was stunning in Johanna Ortiz dress which features a strapless neckline and a fluted silhouette.
Now in its fifth year, the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball returns to Pier 2 where the Manhattan skyline and sweeping views of New York harbor will serve as the magnificent backdrop for the evening’s celebration of New York City’s most spectacular waterfront park.
“I’m not joking, we come here three times a day,” said actress Keri Russell, standing next to Matthew Rhys, her partner on “The Americans” and in real life.
“We have three kids, three different ages, and they all have their own thing to do here,” Rhys said. The eldest shoots hoops. The 5-year-old plays soccer.
“We ride our bikes, baby on our back, with coffee,” Russell said.
Next week, they start shooting the final season of “The Americans” — their last opportunity to show off disguises as undercover Russian spies pretending to be all manner of innocents.
“I like the really ugly ones,” Russell said. “I have one that’s sort of an old lady, grayish hair and glasses that’s funny.”
Rhys’s favorite is the one with a dark, thin mustache. He calls it Fernando.
“That’s the hot, sexy one,” Russell said.
Matthew Rhys Said the Sweetest Things About Partner Keri Russell.
Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell’s relationship is en pointe. That much was clear during their Thursday, September 28, date night at the New York City Ballet’s fall fashion gala.
“Keri is an enormous ballet fan, so through her my eyes have opened to the intricacies of dance a lot more,” Rhys exclusively told Us Weekly. “I used to think, ‘This is ridiculous!’ but she explained to me how athletic they are, how strong they are.”
Rhys, 42, and Russell, 41, who costar on the FX spy drama The Americans, began dating in 2013. Us Weekly broke the news that they had welcomed their son Sam, now 16 months old. Russell is also mom of River, 9, and Willa, 5, with ex-husband Shane Dreary.
“Sam is growing up trilingual because he’s got Welsh, English and there’s Spanish in the house,” Rhys told Us. “He’s walking, he’s talking, shouting— not talking — shouting.”
Russell, who was standing next to Rhys, echoed the sentiment. “He’s a noisy baby. Oh my god, he’s so noisy,” she said, to which Rhys replied, “Just like mum!”
Rhys recently revealed that he asked the Felicity alum out 16 years ago when he was intoxicated after a kickball party. “I very drunkenly asked her for her number when she was a young, single, slip of a thing,” he recalled on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in April.
According to Rhys he left her a “drunken voicemail,” adding that he was “that buffoon that wouldn’t stop calling.”
Keri Russell Can Thank Jill Clayburgh for Her Love of Theater.
Over the years, the Jill Clayburgh has bequeathed several memorable roles to audiences, from an affluent Upper East Sider in Unmarried Woman to, most recently, Kristin Wiig’s quirky mom in Bridesmaids. And her generosity extends to the theater, too. Last night at the New York City Ballet Fall Gala at New York’s Lincoln Center, Keri Russell credited the late actress, who she starred with in 1997’s When Innocence Is Lost, for introducing her to the ballet.
“When I first moved to New York, Jill Clayburgh had tickets every year and I used to use her seats to the matinee,” she told InStyle. “The ballet is such a fun, fancy part of being in New York.” Russell, in a black minidress by Johanna Ortiz, walked the red carpet arm in arm with her boyfriend, Matthew Rhys, who donned a Domenico Vacca suit—the same one he wore to the White House to meet Barack Obama. “The good president!” he said, laughing.
Inside, Russell and Rhys joined NYCB board of directors vice chair Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Michelle Monaghan, Prabal Gurung, Hari Nef, and others for this year’s performance, which showcased four choreographer and designer collaborations: Lauren Lovette and Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim of Monse, Justin Peck and Tsumori Chisato, Gianna Reisen and Virgil Abloh of Off-White, and Troy Schumacher and Jonathan Saunders.
