The 2022 Garden Party

Tuesday, May 25, 2022, at 6:00p

Revelation Gallery and St. Benedicts Garden

at St. John's in the Village


The first annual 2022 helpNYC Garden was a huge success. Over 45 people attended and helped raise money for the work of helpNYC. We are deeply grateful to those who donated and the partnerships we built to support our work.


Special thanks go to the party's sponsor Housing Works and to our gracious host St. John's in the Village. We could not have done this event without you!


We raised $2,949 that will go directly to the work of helpNYC.
