OCEANA-A 501(c)3 FOR THE WORLD'S WATERWAYS



HOSTS BRENDA and ALEX VON SCHWIECKHARDT


OCEANA, a non-profit that works to protect our planet’s 640 million (plus) acres of oceans…arrived “with a splash” at the stunning residence of generous hosts Brenda and Alex Von Schwieckhardt.

As avid scuba divers, we are extremely keen on this international advocacy group that is dedicated to protecting and restoring the world’s oceans.

Via a team of lawyers, marine scientist, economists and advocates ----Oceana is onboard to “win specific and concrete policy changes to reduce pollution and to prevent the irreversible collapse of fish populations, marine mammals and other sea life.”

The private event saw supporters from NY's variety of residents--- fashion types (John Varvatos, Tommy Hilfiger, Terry Lundgren – CEO of Macy’s), musicians Nile Rodgers and Mick Jones, actors Sam Waterson and Gina Gershon (soon to be on Broadway in Bye, Bye Birdie).
