2022 GALA: HONORING GARY LABARBERA

As New York City’s leading advocate for healthy and sustainable buildings, Urban Green has had a long relationship with organized labor locally and nationally. This year, we're delighted to honor Gary LaBarbera, President of the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York, at our 20th Anniversary Gala on September 29.

The building trades will play a critical role as New York transitions to a green economy. We’re so grateful to have forward-thinking leaders like Mr. LaBarbera who can bridge the gap between building trades and rapidly changing building technologies.


Thank you to all the organizations that have already pledged their support to this year's 20th Anniversary Gala! We're expecting a sold-out event, so secure your sponsorship soon. For more information, please visit our Gala page and RSVP today to join us at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers!
