Fans have been begging Al to slow down his schedule while he continues to recover from health issues, but the TV personality is still making time for various work events.
Along with hosting the Today show and making appearances on NBC Nightly News, he also hosted Friday’s luncheon event.
He looked dapper on the red carpet in a dark suit, blue-and-silver striped tie, and blue handkerchief in his jacket pocket.
Al also made sure to have his usual accessory on hand – a flower pin on his lapel.
“The HRPK Friends Playground Committee promotes and supports everything the Park has to offer, with a special focus on children, education and families,” the official site shared.
Of the event, the site added: “The Committee’s Annual Luncheon gathers together Committee members and neighborhood friends.
“[It] celebrate[s] Hudson River Park and the dedicated philanthropists and volunteers who work to ensure the Park’s continued care, growth and success.”
It took place at Pier 59’s waterfront event space, Current, at Chelsea Piers for a few hours during the day on Friday.
Al hosted the annual affair, which honored author and actress Jill Kargman and Terez CEO Zara Terez Tisch.
Along with a nice luncheon spread, the event also includes speeches, a live auction, and gift bags.
Fans have been worrying about Al’s health lately as he continues his return to a busy schedule after fighting off blood clots over the holiday season.
After the Today host shared footage of his time not only working on the morning show but also Nightly News, followers shared their concerns in the comments section.
But fans were concerned that the journalist is taking on too much work during his recovery from his dangerous health issues late last year.
“Love watching you, but isn’t this a long day for you! Take it easy, a long weekend isn’t enough. Take care,” wrote one fan.
A second said: “Burning the midnight oil Al. You need to take it easy.”
