New York Restoration Project (NYRP), founded by award-winning singer, entertainer, actress and green activist Bette Midler, will celebrate the re-opening of New York, and two and a half decades of beautifying the city’s urban environment with its annual Halloween party, Hulaween. On Friday, October 29th, all the glam of the 1970s will be brought back for one night as Cipriani South Street is transformed into a Studio 54-era ode to disco for a legendary evening of dancing, dazzling lights, and show stopping performances behind the velvet rope! Disco legend and two-time GRAMMY Award winner Gloria Gaynor will headline Boogie Frights Hulaween, and Michael Kors, fashion designer and NYRP Trustee, will judge the annual Costume Competition. Lance Le Pere will receive the Wind Beneath My Wings Award for his longstanding support of NYRP and Miriam Wheeler, Co-head of the Americas Real Estate Financing Group at Goldman Sachs, will receive the Green Goddess Award for her commitment to serving underserved communities in New York City. Thorgy Thor of Rupaul’s Drag Race will serve as this year’s fabulous Red Carpet Correspondent and will be taking over NYRP’s Instagram (@nyrp) and posting exclusive behind the scenes content throughout the evening. Stay tuned for additional entertainment announcements and updates in the coming weeks!
NYRP’s Hulaween is one of New York City’s most anticipated Halloween parties every year. Described as one of the “most fashionable, talked-about and dress-to-impress” parties in NYC by The New York Times, the star-studded costume gala raises crucial funds for NYRP’s work cleaning and greening the city.

ABOUT NEW YORK RESTORATION PROJECT
New York Restoration Project (NYRP) is a non-profit organization driven by the conviction that all New Yorkers deserve beautiful, high-quality public space within ready walking distance of their homes. Since its founding in 1995 by Bette Midler, NYRP has planted trees, renovated gardens, restored parks, and transformed open space for communities throughout New York City's five boroughs. As New York's only citywide nature conservancy, NYRP brings private resources to spaces that lack adequate municipal support, fortifying the City's aging infrastructure and creating a healthier environment for those who live in the most densely populated and least green neighborhoods.
