Park lovers partied up a storm at the Prospect Park Alliance’s fall fundraiser on Nov. 10, celebrating “our community and honoring its commitment to Prospect Park” by doling out awards, mostly to itself.

The cool honors were served in between the munchies, music and mingling in assorted “lounges,” set up to represent a unique aspect of the park.

There was plenty of back-slapping camaraderie and plaudits for the Prospect Park’s Junior Committee and Playground Committee “for outstanding service.” Alliance boardmember Leslie Puth was hailed with the James S.T. Stranahan Award, and Grace Lyu-Volckhausen, president of the Tiger Baron Foundation won the Wilbur A. Levin Award.

A silent auction sealed the deal.
