New Yorkers will soon be able to visit pandas right in our own backyard thanks to Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney. Representing the Bronx Zoo, Congresswoman Maloney has long hoped to bring pandas to Central Park or the Bronx Zoo. She sees their arrival in New York as a "time to have something happy."
To benefit The Pandas Are Coming to NYC project, Broadway Stages's President Gina Argento has sponsored the Black & White Panda Ball. As a sponsor of the event, Gina wishes to take part in welcoming two Chinese pandas to New York City by raising funds to accommodate the transportation and stay of the pandas. Broadway Stages looks forward to the day the pandas arrive!
