UPDATE: Due to the forecast, the City Parks Foundation Gala Dinner & Concert has been relocated from SummerStage, Central Park to TERMINAL 5 and will now start at 7:30pm.
Join us for an evening of dinner, drinks and live music celebrating the music of David Bowie as we honor Michael L. Reinert, Esq. at the annual City Parks Foundation Gala at SummerStage.
Each year at our annual gala, City Parks Foundation presents the People and Parks Award to a recipient who shares our mission to inspire New Yorkers and enrich the cultural life of our communities. This year we proudly honor Michael L. Reinert, Esq. Michael, a partner at Fox Rothschild LLP, represents legendary music icon Stevie Wonder, founder of Motown Records Berry Gordy, and hip-hop record label Cash Money Records that has featured Drake, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. He is also currently working with Mariah Carey and many prominent film and TV production companies. Prior to Fox, Michael was the EVP of Business and Legal Affairs at the Universal Motown Republic Group where he worked with artists such as Taylor Swift, Amy Winehouse, Nelly, and Jack Johnson. Michael has inspired the entertainment industry as a board member for the TJ Martell Foundation and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
The evening will culminate with a spectacular concert under the stars featuring very special guests celebrating the music of David Bowie, one of the most influential and beloved rock stars to grace the planet — and our own SummerStage in Central Park in 2005.
