Get your tickets now for the 2016 CUP Benefit! CUP’s main fundraising event, the Benefit directly supports CUP’s work of using design and art to make the inner workings of the urban environment accessible and understandable to New Yorkers.
At the Benefit you’ll rub elbows with 300 artists, activists, designers, community leaders, architects, policymakers, and CUP Fans and chat about visual culture, urban form, infrastructure, and more as you get up close with our projects from past and present. Enjoy a range of tasty treats, including hors d’oeuvres from Avlee and Apou’s Taste, beer from Lagunitas, and ice cream concretes from Shake Shack!
This year, we celebrate our 15th anniversary! And it’s already shaping up to be an exciting year, with recent honors including the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Institutional Achievement and a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award from First Lady Michelle Obama. We are so excited to celebrate these important milestones with you and raise funds for our critical work.
So join us now for an evening of conversation, cocktails, and CUP projects! A full list of sponsorship opportunities is detailed below.
