Friars to Host Annual Sunset Party

Reservations accepted until May 9

The Franciscan Friars of the Atonement will host their seventh annual Sunset on the Hudson cocktail party at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, at X20 Xaviars on the Hudson, 71 Water Grant St., in Yonkers, with hors d’oeuvres and desserts by chef Peter X. Kelly. The evening will also feature live music and a silent auction. The event’s honorary chair is novelist Mary Higgins Clark; Kacey Morabito of WHUD will serve as master of ceremonies.

The benefit supports the work of the Franciscan Friars, a Roman Catholic order founded at Graymoor in Garrison in 1898. Its ministries include Christian unity; interreligious dialogue among Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists; serving the homeless and those suffering from alcoholism, drug addictions, and HIV/AIDS; preaching the gospel in parishes around the world; and offering respite and hope to those in need of spiritual renewal.

Tickets are $185 per person and reservations will be accepted until May 9. For information, call 845-424-2137 or visit
