United Nations Association of New York
Members Chill Out at Second Summer Soirée




A lot of energetic, globally-minded and ethically-psyched New Yorkers came together again to celebrate the United Nations Association of New York's second Summer Soirée.

This year's shindig unfolded at The Hudson Terrace on July 23, attracting UNA-NY members and their guests in a fun, relaxed setting aimed at facilitating networking and camaraderie throughout the 800-plus member strong organization.

More than 300 guests talked and mixed inside the discreetly decorated salon as well as cooling off on the breezy Garden Terrace at this very chic urban sanctuary which, tucked along the Hudson River, featured a magnificent urban vista. The evening's festivities began with two for one drinks and a complimentary taco bar. DJ's were at the ready and spun their cool sounds, adding an ambiant kick to the warm evening.

UNA-NY's President Abid Qureshi, Executive Vice President Robin van Puyenbroeck and Executive Director Ann Nicol provided a warm welcome to all, along with several other board members and interns who were on hand to answer new members' questions.

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, our July event is intended as a fun and sophisticated networking/social affair for all new and prospective members to meet some of those who have already been around the UNA-NY tableau for a while.

See you next year!
