The American Australian Association teamed up with Affairs Afloat to host the 2nd annual Summer Cruise on the Hudson on Thursday, July 12, 2012.
It was a beautiful sunset sail with 400 people enjoying a night of music and drinks to the unbeatable backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.
Our sincere thanks go to Steven Salsberg, Chairman of Global Access Advisors, for donating the vessel and cruise, and enabling this to be a free entry event!
Other partners to thank include Pie Face, DJ Paul Ezekiel and the Liberty NYC.
