Renowned entertainer Bette Midler founded the nonprofit New York Restoration Project (NYRP) in 1995 with the belief that clean and green neighborhoods are fundamental to the quality of life and that every community in New York City deserves an oasis of natural beauty. NYRP partners with individuals, community-based groups, and public agencies to reclaim, restore, and develop under-resourced parks, community gardens, and open space in New York City, primarily in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods.On October 31, NYRP will host Hulaween 2006, an Eleventh Anniversary celebration with a special performance by acclaimed entertainer Stevie Nicks. As part of the gala Celebration, NYRP will continue its successful tradition of hosting online a star studded celebrity auction at www.charitybuzz.com. Literally dozens of celebrities and friends of Bette Midler and NYRP will once again contribute incredible and very divine one of a kind experiences and memorabilia. Based on the unparalleled success of the 2005 event, we are proud to predict that the auction will be expanded in2006 in both scope and quantity of lots available to raise funds to continuethe work of NYRP.
