Rocking the Boathouse is Rocking the Boat's new spring gala at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park, a fitting location for South Bronx students and metropolitan area supporters to come together and celebrate their shared appreciation of boats, water, and nature.
Funds raised will support Rocking the Boat's signature Boatbuilding, Environmental Science, and Sailing programs; wrap-around social work and college counseling; extended services for program alumni; and inspiring outdoor experiences for middle schoolers and the larger Hunts Point community. Recently marking its 20th anniversary, Rocking the Boat has developed a reputation as one of the most extraordinary programs of its kind in the nation, serving nearly 4,000 young people and community members.
