With over two decades of construction experience, Christopher “Chris” McNally leads Falcon Project Quality Management as company president. In addition to his professional activities at Falcon, Chris McNally dedicates time and resources to national and local groups such as Riverside Park Conservancy.

Throughout the year, Riverside Park Conservancy holds several fundraising events supporting its mission to maintain and improve Riverside Park for the residents of New York. As part of its 30th-anniversary celebrations, the conservancy held its 2016 Spring Gala on June 6 at the General Grant National Memorial.

Actress and longtime environmental activist Debra Winger hosted the event, which featured cocktails, dinner, and dancing as well as a presentation of the inaugural Riverside Park Conservancy Citizenship Award to Robert Morgenthau, a former New York County district attorney who continues to serve the local community through a variety of activities. In terms of fundraising, the 2016 Spring Gala was the Conservancy’s most successful. The funds raised through the event will go a long way toward supporting the organization’s efforts to protect the 350-acre park.
