Bette Middler Piece in NY Post- How the Other Half Fund Raises

[I  include this in awe of how the other half fund-raises ( I just hustle
garden t-shirts and write letters.) Well, saving 51 community gardens costs
alot of money. More than a pizza and a few beers, to be sure.... ]
This piece appeared in Liz Smith's column in today's NY Post.
BETTE MIDLER, the savior of New York's neglected parks (let's omit Central
Park - that biggie has plenty of other saviors) has been tapped by Gov.
George Pataki to receive the prestigious "Parks and Presentation Award 2002"
from him at a gala benefiting her N.Y. Restoration Project. 
Let me count the ways Bette deserves this - 75,000 tons of debris removed
from public spaces; 119 acres reclaimed along the Harlem River; 51 community
gardens rescued from the auction block; 375 acres of parks cleaned and made
available. In the past, this award has gone to people like Laurance and
David Rockefeller. 
The party celebrating the Divine One happens June 6 at Fort Washington Park,
the site of the famous little red light house. The names backing this event
are terrific - Nora Ephron, Susan Sarandon, Mica and Ahmet Ertegun, Michael
Fuchs, William Goldman, John and Susan Hess. Ticket buyers are invited to
wear picnic attire. Tickets start at $1,000 but you could send a donation if
you love Bette and her important project. Call (212) 685-1095.
