Will you take on ‘The Tank’?  

NYACC is bringing back its SHARK TANK CHALLENGE event!

Health Precautions: NYC’s COVID-19 protocols have changed. Due to vaccine mandates for indoor dining and entertainment venues, including zoos and aquariums, all guests will need to be vaccinated to be indoors. As of now, our venue is requiring masks indoors, except when guests are at a table for dining. While guests are looking at posters and walking around the space, masks will need to be worn.

Cash Prizes: Thanks to a generous gift from the Michael Wolk Heart Foundation, cash prizes have been increased to:

1st Place – $2,5000
2nd Place – $1,500
3rd Place – $500
