Any new members attending the dinner for the first time will be introduced and receive their membership pin (please indicate when purchasing tickets). Our program includes a special tribute to former Metro NY Section Chair Phil Erard. Professional Mountain Guide Melissa Arnot, who most famously de-escalated the volatile situation on Everest in 2013, will share her story of learning the ropes, taking us from Mount Rainier to the summit of Everest five times. Live Your Dream Grant recipient, Dominic Metcalf will start things off with a presentation on his climbing trip in preparation to attempt all six of the great North Faces of the Alps. Proceeds this year benefit the Juniper Fund and the Samuel F. Pryor III Shawangunk Gateway (Gunks) Campground.
