Record crowds celebrated the Design Trust's role in transforming the High Line into the magnificent park it is today at the 2011 Art + Design Benefit Auction on November 2nd (view the party photos).

Special guests Joshua David and Robert Hammond from Friends of the High Line gave the toast of the evening, saying "The High Line wouldn't exist today if it wasn't for the Design Trust."

We (heart) our beloved community of event leaders, sponsors, artists, designers and supporters who made the 2011 Benefit such a rocking party and a resounding success!
