fundraising events


Two annual fundraising events help support Rocking the Boat’s mission. Rocking the Boathouse, a lively 300-person cocktail party featuring dancing and a silent auction at The Loeb Boathouse in Central Park. Revelers will enjoy activities indoors and out, and a deserving Rocking the Boat grad will receive the Pete and Toshi Seeger Alumni Award.  Rocking the Boathouse 2020 will take place on Wednesday, April 29.

Rocking Manhattan is a full-day, 30-mile row around the entire island of Manhattan in handmade 26-foot Whitehall rowing gigs.  This fall event engages over 100 rowers and 40 guests on an elegant spectator boat, as well as 12 Rocking the Boat alumni who serve as coxwains.  Rocking Manhattan 2020 will take place on Saturday, October 17.

Sprinkled throughout the year will be additional opportunities to support Rocking the Boat from sip-n-shop events at local stores to casual gatherings at yacht clubs to film screenings to musical theater productions with the illustrious Blue Hill Troupe. Stay tuned for details!
