153 guests attended the gala dinner and charity auction to benefit surgeons of hope (SOH) and to honor the memory of Michel Berty, one of the most influential board members of the Foundation.

Jean Shafiroff & Charles-Edouard Catherine




The Gala began with a video tribute to Michel Berty, who passed away
in February. The evening also included comments from SoH’s President Dr. Da Cruz; SoH’s Board Member Michel Longchampt; SoH’s Executive Director Charles-Edouard Catherine; graceful transitions by our emcee and CNN Entertainment Reporter Chloe Melas, and a Live auction led by Christina Williams from Sotheby’s.



The beautiful salon of le Bernardin Prive brightened the evening for
our guests, who were welcomed with champagne donated by Mario Rinaldi. A four-course meal by Chef Eric Ripert followed, each course paired with wine donated by Acker Wine to accentuate one’s dining experience. Witty and charming bidding during the live auction rewarded several guests with vacations to Panama and the South of France, including business-class tickets donated by Air France; a lithograph by Joan Miro and exceptional wine packages.



Organizing an event such as this one wouldn’t be possible without the
key contribution of our Gala committee and the great work of our
staff. Thank you all for making this possible!

HORNBLOWER FERRY STRANDS HUNTERS POINT SOUTH

Hunters Point East River Route



I am getting many complaints from residents in Hunters Point South that Hornblower Ferry is too packed and leaving them stranded at the docks.


Several residents have come to us, saying that the rush hour Ferries are so packed, they are left standing on the dock and told to wait for the next Ferry. This is making residents late for work and making residents think twice about using the service. The boats arrive packed and just can not take anymore passengers.


It would seem like a smart idea since the Ferries are catching on, that Hornblower adds extra rush hour boats to accommodate all the commuters that want to use the service, just like the MTA does in rush hours. And since it is now summer, extra boats all the time are needed because we now have all these tourists using the service. 


The city keeps yelling that tourism is great for us, but at what cost? Our subways are packed, our Ferries are packed and getting on the bus can be a miracle for New Yorkers. And we wonder why the Staten Island Ferry is still free, mostly tourists ride it, lets charge them and residents with NYC ID ride for free. This can bring in millions a week to buy more Ferries for all our new routes. This idea is such a logical way for our Ferry system to go.


 Are you reading Speaker Corey Johnson?  Your the only one NYC residents can count on, Jimmy Van Bramer does nothing for us here, except to pose for photos!



ERICH BERGEN JOINS BROADWAYS SMASH 'WAITRESS'


"What Baking Can Do" - Katharine McPhee




Producers of the smash Broadway musical WAITRESS announced today that Erich Bergen will take over the role of Dr. Pomatter on June 5 and play through August 12.



WAITRESS will mark Erich’s Broadway debut. He currently plays Blake Moran on the CBS drama, Madam Secretary, beginning its 5th season this fall. In 2014 he starred as Bob Gaudio in the film Jersey Boys, reprising his performance from the National Tour and Las Vegas productions of the show.

Erich Bergen




WAITRESS recently celebrated its second anniversary on Broadway and is on a National Tour.



WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna (Katharine McPhee, through June 17), an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life. This American musical celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.



Based on the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, WAITRESS is the first Broadway musical in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots, with a book by Jessie Nelson, a score by six-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus.



WAITRESS is produced on Broadway by Barry and Fran Weissler and Norton and Elayne Herrick.
