“With the ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘why’ firmly in place we decided to revamp the ‘where’, and stage the 2016 Gala in a truly stunning venue,” the organization’s website says. “The Duggal Greenhouse, the only venue of its kind with sweeping skyline views of Manhattan, provides the kind of cutting edge backdrop–steeped in history yet embracing the future–capable of capturing everything that PAVE stands for.”
