Michael Kors and Lance Le Pere Celebrate NYRP and The Essex Street Community Garden with a Block Party

| June 21, 2018 | Parties

On Thursday, June 21, 2018, Michael Kors hosted a community block party for the Essex Street Community Garden, a park developed by the New York Restoration Project (NYRP). The event, held on the summer solstice, started with a ribbon-cutting by Bette Midler and continued with an all-out celebration featuring live music, top-notch food trucks, face-painting for children and more. "New York is our home and an uneding source of inspiration for our work," says Kors. "We're honored to be able to help Bette and her colleagues at NYRP. Their work helps improve the lives of everyone in New York City by bringing a little nature to the urban environment and creating safe, healthy spaces where local communities can connect."
