An Evening Filled With Non-Profits And Event Planning!
People have been asking what a typical evening looks like. Here is what an evening filled with non-profits and event planning looks like! After a full night’s sleep from a full day of strutting, here it is:
3pm: Scoped out the amazing event space for the retail manager networking event we are hosting on Monday. For a press release on the event, click here. Check out the video of the space here: 38 Greene.
4pm: Met up with Housing Works to discuss ways we can partner with other brands and companies in SoHo to create programming.
Housing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Our mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain our efforts.
5pm: Intermittently walking in the street, we noticed that the C.O.S. store that has been gut-renovated over the past year, finally had the scaffolding removed:
C.O.S. was supposed to open up this past spring, according to Racked, but they must have underestimated the renovation job.
6:30: While we couldn’t stick around long enough to see the short films, we stopped by an event at the “SoHo West” WeWork (69 Charlton Street) for the NYC Film Production Company Refilmery.
7:30 on: We finished the night off by attending the ACE Social Hour at Other Criteria on Broome Street. This was an event to connect with ACE donors and friends.
The Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless (ACE) works with homeless men and women throughout New York City, providing job training, work experience and a lifetime support network to help our program participants achieve their goals and establish economic independence.
We met lots of new local companies, including a representative from Chobani, as well as finally meeting Jessica, the membership manager who has helped connect us with lots of new businesses!
