In a town full of fundraisers it can be difficult to pick a soiree that is the perfect balance of honoring a charity and having an amazing time while doing it.
This past week such an event took place with the Yellowstone Forever Young Patrons benefit. The hottest party of the week hosted nearly 500 guests at Lavo. Guests danced the night away with amazing drink selections and appetizers all while raising over $85,000.
The incredible party was hosted by Yellowstone Forever Young Patrons, who are the official nonprofit partners of Yellowstone National Park. The loyal and dedicated organization supports the preservation of the American landmark. They spread the word on preservation also while encouraging visitor numbers to soar, all while embracing a bright future for the wildlife.
In these trying days it is more important than ever for organizations to the take the time to make a difference. The night was the embodiment of the power of a party for a great cause. The amazing co-chairs Arielle Patrick, Jackie Rooney, and Alice Ryan are to be applauded for their efforts to create change.
During the fantastic soiree guests roared with gratitude as they sipped Ilegal Mezcal, Yellowstone Bourbon, Triple Eight Vodka by Cisco Brewers, Archer Wines, and Stella Artois. The dance floor at the hotspot was wild with fun until 11 pm until guests mingled down to the official after party at Avenue.
Here is to another splendid night in New York City.
