HONOREES

BNP Paribas and Jean-Yves Fillion, CEO, BNP Paribas USA and Chairman of CIB Americas

City Parks Foundation is proud to honor BNP Paribas with Jean-Yves Fillion, CEO, BNP Paribas USA and Chairman, CIB Americas, with the “People and Parks” Award. Under Jean Yves Fillion’s leadership, BNP Paribas USA has been a major participant in our Partnerships for Parks program, sending hundreds of employee volunteers each year to help us improve parks throughout New York City. BNP is also a major supporter of CityParks Tennis, which provides free instruction and competitive opportunities for over 6,000 children annually in 38 parks.

Steven Tyler

City Parks Foundation is thrilled to present Steven Tyler with our inaugural “SummerStage Icon” Award, for his enormous contributions to our city’s — and our country’s —  cultural landscape, and for his tireless efforts as an avid advocate and philanthropist. A native New Yorker, rock icon Steven Tyler has performed some of rock and roll’s greatest hits including “Dream On”, “Sweet Emotion”, “Cryin’”, and “Janie’s Got a Gun”.  Tyler is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, is a multi-Grammy Award winner, and is considered by Rolling Stone to be one of the 100 Greatest Singers.  In 2016, Tyler received the United Nations Humanitarian Award for his work bringing hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect. Tyler is deeply committed to protecting the rights of songwriters and is a tireless advocate for raising awareness of addiction issues and recovery solutions.

 

This incredible evening under the stars raises funds needed to support City Parks Foundation’s free arts, sports, education, and community-building programs held in parks throughout NYC.
