Please join us at the Three Parks’ Annual Benefit on Sunday, May 19, 2024, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at The Ellington at 2745 Broadway (105th St.) to celebrate Three Parks Independent Democrats’ 49 years of championing progressive causes and city, state, and national Democratic leaders.

At this year’s Benefit, we will be presenting the Ted Weiss Public Service Award to (NYC Comptroller Brad Lander for his work on the progressive issues that Three Parks supports.

To celebrate the life of our beloved long-time District Leader, Cynthia Doty, the inaugural Cynthia L. Doty Community Service Award will be presented to the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group, an organization that was particularly meaningful to Cynthia.

We also have the pleasure of honoring retiring State Assemblyman Daniel O’Donnell for his 22 years of service to our community with a Special Recognition Award.

With the crucial 2024 elections looming, your support is more critical than ever. This year’s Benefit will enable Three Parks Independent Democrats to continue our support of progressive causes and candidates. We have already begun planning our campaign to help defeat Trump, re-elect Biden, and turn Congress blue. This will include phone banking, texting and postcard campaigns, in-person canvassing, and staffing a campaign storefront in the neighborhood. We will also continue advocating for the New York Health Act, the preservation of our community’s zoning, and other critical local issues.

We are asking for your support. To have your name listed on the Benefit invitation, as an Angel ($1,000), Benefactor ($500), Patron ($300) or Sponsor ($200), please reply by April 19th.

Friends ($175), and contributors at all levels of support will be acknowledged at the Benefit.

Admission at the door: Club members = $50.00. General admission = $175.00

For information, problems or questions call Lois Safian at (917) 453-5910 or email

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and to seeing you on May 19.

This is a three part process:

  1. Information Page Below
    Send Three Parks your name(s) just as you would want it to appear on the invitation, the program and in the club newsletter. Also send us your contact information and contribution amount. Fill out the form below and click Submit. You will go to the pre-payment page.

    Note: if your first name appears on your credit card as Calpurnia, but you wish to be listed on the invitation as Binky, then put Binky in the space below. When you get to PayPal use the same name that appears on the credit card.

  2. Pre-Payment Page
    Fill in the sponsor level again and click the Donate button at the bottom to go to PayPal. This is repetitive, but by filling in the contribution amount again, you set up the PayPal form.

  3. PayPal Page
    Make the actual credit card payment here. You don't need to open a PayPal account, just use your credit card. Be sure to click "Pay by Credit Card."

Why all these steps? We need PayPal to process your credit card, but it is set up to sell you a toothbrush, and doesn't collect or give us the information we need to add your name to the invitation. The information from this first step goes directly to Three Parks. When you enter the amount again on the next page, that information goes to PayPal.
