The 2012 Summer Soirée

International humanitarian-minded New Yorkers are invited to celebrate the United Nations Association of New York's first Summer Soirée in The Yard lounge at the SoHo Grand Hotel on Tuesday, July 24, 2012. This free event is open to existing UNA-NY members, as well as all persons interested in joining.

As the host chapter to the United Nations Association, UNA-NY is dedicated to raising public awareness of the UN and its work, as well as to promote the general goals of the UN. As such, the July event is intended as a fun and sophisticated networking/social affair for all new and prospective members to meet ones who have already been around the UNA-NY tableau for a while. This urbane "mixer" will take place in The Yard, an outdoor urban oasis at the SoHo Grand Hotel. Existing UNA-NY members are encouraged to bring a friend.

"We are delighted to be able to bring together this group of exciting, young individuals who are interested in advancing the conversations surrounding the critical issues that confront the UN international community," says UNA-NY Executive Director, Ann Nicol. "We want our newer members to feel they are part of a bigger global picture by creating a venue for them to meet people with the same interests."

The evening's festivities at The Yard will begin with complimentary hors d'oeuvres sponsored by UNA-NY and Smile Boutique Dental. Guests may order warm weather favorites such as mojitos, margaritas, and white and red sangria at the cash bar, and plate selections at The Yard Grill. SoHo Grand's DJ Tennessee Thomas will be on hand to spin tunes and set the party mood. Silent auction prizes featuring items donated by Coach, Destiny Day Spa, the Mama Necklace, Smile Boutique Dental, and Zubi Rosner, LLP will also be awarded.

The SoHo Grand Hotel is operated by Grand Hotels NYC.

Grand Hotels NYC is renowned for offering the highest level of personalized service and has continually set industry standards for premier amenities and guest services. Grand Hotels NYC also reinvented the traditional hotel bar concept by blending nightlife and dining with the opening of Grand Bar & Lounge and Church Lounge — two of Manhattan's key destinations for day or night and a favorite haunt for celebrities, savvy locals and refined travelers alike.

Tennessee Thomas is the founding member & drummer of girl band The Like. Recording with the likes of Mark Ronson & soul collective the Dap Kings, The Like released albums & toured the world from 2001-2011 when they broke up. Now she is a regular DJ on the NYC nightlife circuit, and plays a bountiful mix of 50?s and 60?s jumpin' & jivin' tunes that always gets the dance floor heaving.
