Posted in Uncategorized by blogwing on 02/25/2010

Last night we attended the East Side Settlement Auto Show Gala Preview at the amazing studio of artist Hunt Slonem. Mr. Slonem has so many exhibitions planned this year so it is rare to have the special opportunity to see his artist studio! The New York International Auto Show Gala raises funds for East Side Settlement, founded in 1891. East Side has served Mott Haven section of the Bronx since 1963 and has a staff of 281, including full and part-time teachers, social workers and other experts serving approximately 8,000 residents from 17 locations. This year marks the 11th year partnership in community service with the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association which is the oldest and most-attended auto show in North America. East Side Settlement has netted close to $3.5 million over the past 10 years and the Gala has become a critical source of funding to help students succeed in high school and beyond. It will be held on April 1st so please check out www.galapreview.org where you can now buy tickets.

Others seen at the party include: Kipton Cronkite, Naeem Delbridge, Susan Kilkenny, Melissa Berkelhammer, Michelle Norkett, Hunt Slonem (the host), Jed Weinstein and Tia Walker.
