This weekend at Bowery Hotel Syndicate-5 proudly produced the 5th Anniversary Silver & Gold Winter Party to benefit Roots & Wings. The special event was hosted by Silver & Gold Chairpersons Ian Gerard and Danielle Riley.
Hundreds of excited guests mingled and danced the night away to the tunes of DJ Kris Muniz. A special midnight performance by Natascha Bessez kept the party going until the early morning hours.
Roots & Wings is a nonprofit global development fund headquartered in New York City. With an integrated approach, social empowerment and economic development are brought to overlooked and impoverished regions of the world.
The group forms partnerships among civic and business leaders to bring local businesses to scale, creating long-term local employment, generating goods and services needed locally, and investing in deeply needed social supports. With Roots & Wings, these communities become stronger and more resilient. Program sites are in Cameroon, Kyrgyzstan, and Punjab, India.
