The best party of the week took place downtown at Bowery Hotel. Hundreds of guests gathered for the Sixth Annual Silver & Gold Party. Snow didn’t keep the best of New York’s tastemakers from coming out to one of the hottest tickets in town. The coveted Syndicate-5 soiree had 500 guests mingling and dancing the night away to stay warm and cozy. DJ Arturo Chi’en played hot tunes, and a special appearance by Svetty around midnight was more fun than a Russian playing roulette.
And all for a great cause – Roots & Wings, which envisions a world beyond poverty where all people thrive through the roots of social empowerment and the wings of economic opportunity.
Millions of people in the world live in poverty yet aspire to better circumstances. Education, healthcare, nutrition, housing and social inclusion are the roots that strengthen families and communities. Opportunities for employment, earning, and growth are the wings that promote financial independence and sustained livelihoods. Through roots and wings, families and communities become stronger and more resilient.
