Help NYCGMC and YPC in our mission by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

Join us for Lily Garden, a sophisticated early-evening garden party benefiting New York City Gay Men's Chorus. Hosted by the ever-elegant Lily Putian, guests will enjoy a refined evening of cocktails, canapés, and conversation on a terrace overlooking Central Park at Tavern on the Green. The night will feature live and silent auctions and one of the summer's most urbane and cosmopolitan crowds.

Our VIP reception starts the party, with an extremely limited guest capacity. The VIP hour will run from 6 to 7 pm, during which there will be enhanced food service, a Bollinger champagne toast, and first access to the bar and activities. VIPs also receive a special gift bag worth nearly $300, featuring luxury items from Jo Malone, Malin+Goetz, Bluebuck, Underwear Expert, Ernest Supplies, and SoulCycle.

At 7 pm, the event will open to general admission. Both ticket types feature a sponsored open bar.
