CVH and VOCAL-NY Hold “Bake Sale to Save New York” Outside Gov. Cuomo’s “Top of the Rock” Fundraiser

(Feb 17, 2011) CVH, VOCAL and allies from around New York City converged on Rockefeller Center on Thursday night to protest the fundraiser Governor Andrew Cuomo’s was hosting on the 67th floor of Rockefeller Center, also known as “The Top of the Rock.”  The funds raised at the governor’s event -- $15,000 per person -- are reported to be for Cuomo’s re-election campaign, which is more than 3.5 years away, but the fundraiser’s invite stated plainly that the funds were actually, “to help fund a planned public-relations blitz” to defend the drastic budget cuts the Governor has proposed.
