Past Young Leadership Committee Events
Thanks to all who came out to our Young Leadership Committee Event to support Children’s Rights
On June 7, Children’s Rights hosted its first annual spring benefit for the Young Leadership Committee at 49 Grove. The national advocacy organization welcomed familiar faces and new supporters with a VIP cocktail hour. Throughout the night, young professionals, including some staff attorneys from Children’s Rights, discussed the nonprofit’s mission and made new connections in the plush candlelit lounge.
Throughout the evening, guests stopped by the silent auction table, where some supporters were eager to bid on hot items such as a framed 1970s Edward Keating Photo from Vintage & Modern and a Waterford Serengeti Vase. Designer Mina Deutsch, founder of Mina D. Jewelry, added a beautiful touch of glamour with a cherry quartz and rhodochrosite flower pendent necklace and pink jade and pearl earrings from her collection. Original fashion up for bid, such as a black satin corset top by Victor de Souza and a dress by Tamara Pogosian, were also talking pieces among the trendy crowd.
Mid-way through the event, the hosts turned the mic over to Dan Galpern, a Member of the Children’s Rights Board of Directors, who thanked all the guests on behalf of the organization. He noted that he joined Children’s Rights Board when he was just about the same age as the majority of the room and encouraged the new generation of supporters to participate in the upcoming annual benefit honoring Kasseem ‘Swizz Beatz’ Dean on October 10, 2012 at The Plaza Hotel.
