Sunset Hudson River cruise to feature dinner, entertainment on The River Roses

Partners with PARC will host its semi-annual summer fun event Friday, Aug. 9, when the non-profit hosts its Summer Sunset Cruise on the Hudson, a benefit for children and adults with developmental disabilities.

Departing from historic Cold Spring and the Cold Spring Boat Club, guests will enjoy an evening on the Hudson River aboard The River Rose. The River Rose, a 150-passenger replica of a Mississippi River boat, is renowned on the river, and will provide a wonderful position to view the beautiful Hudson Highlands. Boarding begins at 6:30 p.m.  The boat departs promptly at 7 p.m., and returns to Cold Spring at 10 p.m.

This year’s fundraising cruise will take visitors south on the Hudson River, through Cold Spring and Garrison, past West Point and the Bear Mountain Bridge. Guests are invited to bring a camera for sunset photos. The evening includes a full summer dinner buffet, open bar, Ricardo & Company DJ and dancing, contests, silent auction, and much more.

“The Hudson Highlands are a truly magical place during the summer and to see the beauty of the valley while boating on the river will make for a wonderful and memorable evening,” says Rand Bridget Otten, director of development for Partners with PARC. “This is the sixth cruise we have hosted to benefit children and adults with developmental disabilities and we expect to have another successful fundraiser on our hands this year.”

Tickets are $125 per person or $110 per person for any member of a Putnam County Chamber of Commerce. To make reservations, call Otten, director of development, at 845-278-7272, ext. 2287. Major credit cards are accepted. See for event information and to purchase tickets.
