Ocean conservation organization Oceana and its corporate partner Nautica took to the roof of New York City's Gasveoort Park Avenue hotel to present the first annual City & Sea Party last week.

Conservationist and Oceana Senior Advisor Alexandra Cousteau joined actress Cobie Smulders to host the event. "As I carry on the Cousteau's tradition of advocating for water issues, I am proud to stand with Oceana as they work to protect the oceans for future generations," Cousteau announced.

Funds raised from the event benefited Oceana's campaign to Save the Oceans and Feed the World. Manhattan Magazine provided additional sponsorship for the event, which served as an unofficial celebratory kickoff to Shark Week.

New personality Alexis Witt, designer Miguelina Gambaccini, athlete Scott Gomez and actors Sahseer Zamata, Leslie Lopez, David Rasche, Eric West, Tashiana Washington and Ty Hickson were also in attendance.
