Thank You for an Unforgettable "Night on the Hudson"

UCMP Supporters and Friends,

What an absolutely spectacular and unforgettable evening we enjoyed at our Nov. 29th fundraiser, "A Night on the Hudson"! We can't begin to express our gratitude --  to you all for our event's tremendous success, and to our remarkable honorees, Brenda Feliciano and Paquito D'Rivera.

Under the luminous Manhattan skyline, "A Night on the Hudson" at Weehawken's Chart House was nothing short of magical. In an evening filled with music, celebration, and overwhelming community spirit, we couldn't have asked for better champions of music education than Brenda and Paquito. Their wholehearted support for UCMP brought an extra sparkle to the event. They're the kind of people who light up a room, and boy, did they light up ours! 

But the excitement didn't stop there! Imagine our joy and surprise when Latin jazz legend Paquito  D'Rivera graced our stage, playing alongside our talented Youth Orchestra. It was a goosebumps-inducing moment, proving once again that music knows no boundaries and has the power to connect generations in the most incredible ways. You can watch videos of their performances here and enjoy event photos here.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your unwavering support and generosity. We're especially grateful to Weehawken's Mayor Richard Turner, the Township of Weehawken and Ponce Bank, our event sponsor, for making this glittering evening possible. Monies raised at "A Night on the Hudson" will directly fuel our after school music education programs, ensuring that UCMP continues creating life-changing experiences for Hudson County's underserved children and youth. 

With endless gratitude,

UCMP Executive Director Melina Garcia
