UNA-NY's 2015 Summer Soirée
Draws an Ever Bigger Crowd
A whole lot of energetic, globally-minded and ethically-tuned in New Yorkers came together again to celebrate another chill-out at the United Nations Association of New York's fourth Summer Soirée.
This year's Soirée held its rendezvous at The Hudson Terrace on July 23, attracting many UNA-NY members and even more friends and guests than ever before to this fun, relaxed gig 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 hors d'oeuvres. Hudson Terrace DJ's spun their typically cool sounds, adding just the right sparkle to the warm evening.
UNA-NY's President Abid Qureshi and Executive Director Ann Nicol both provided a very warm welcome to everyone, along with several interns who were on hand to answer questions from many of the new members signing up.
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!
