Sunday, April 28 event to take place at Reid Castle at Manhattanville College

Clearwater and The Connie Hogarth Center for Social Action will host a benefit to support Clearwater’s ongoing Indian Point Campaign that will take place on April 28, from 3:00-6:00 PM at Reid Castle at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY. Clearwater has been at the forefront of the fight to close Indian Point to prevent the relicensing of outdated facility. Since its inception 15 years ago, the Connie Hogarth Center for Social Action has also actively opposed Indian Point and called for its closure. This intimate gathering will bring together many influential individuals from a constituency that is building community momentum to see the Indian Point nuclear facility permanently closed.

Special honored guests include New York Assembly Member, Ellen Jaffee, and former Westchester County Executive, Andrew Spano.
The event will also feature musical performances by singer-songwriter and pop folk artist, Dar Williams; bluesman, Guy Davis; and Hudson Valley songstress, Linda Richards.
The event will also feature a reception and silent auction that includes a week at a villa in Italy, a Peter Max print and more!
