What better way to kick off the season than at Les Couleurs “Summer Solstice Masquerade”. The event took place on Saturday, June 17th on the Lower East Side at Sound Lab, Chrystie Street. Over two hundred glamorously attired attendees, many mysteriously masked, paused for a photo op then meandered through the venue's three rooms.
Miss New York 2013 and Miss Nigeria USA 2015 hosted alongside model Kira Dikhtyar, Alisa Baksheeva and Victoria Secret model, - Alicia Hall. Guest of honor at the event, political activist and writer Jim St. Germain signed and gifted his newly published book "A Stone of Hope"as one of the auction prizes.
Amongst some very special guests one could spot Swing World Champion Robert Royston and a well known to New Yorkers, plastic surgeon Pamela Lipkin, who shared some of the most memorable work experiences with the reporter from Page Six.
Opera singer Veronica Iovan, a regular at Les Couleurs events, gave another impressive performance before the DJ Baltell cranked up the tunes for the crowd ready to dance.
Les Couleurs Charity team is extremely proud that the proceeds from this event will allow to augment arts education program CREATE. It will now include dance and music classes for the 300 children already enrolled at fifteen Port-au-Prince orphanages.
We are so grateful for all our generous supporters and look forward to sharing stories of joy and inspiration from our kids in Haiti, created by this much needed and exciting program expansion.
