On Friday night more than 500 foodies gathered for Project by Project’s 13th Annual Tasting benefit at Skylight Studios West. Revelers enjoyed an extensive of delicacies to sample from some of the top restaurants in NY including South Gate, Social Eatz, Macao Trading Company, Matsuri, Blue Smoke, Tanuki Tavern and others while sipping on premium sake, vodka, and fine wines. In between nibbling on exquisitely prepared bites and imbibing haute wine, peruse our silent auction, which will be chock-full of one-of-a-kind items, gift certificates, and other products generously donated from local and national vendors. And don’t forget to try your hand at our raffle: Winner takes home a pair of round-trip business class tickets.
Net proceeds from this year’s event will benefit our 2011 partner, Chinatown Youth Initiatives.
Project by Project chose Chinatown Youth Initiative as our 2011 Education Partner for its dedication to the empowerment of youth in the Asian American community.
Chinatown Youth Initiatives (CYI) is a youth leadership organization dedicated to providing a safe space for New York City youth, and empowering them to be agents of social change in New York’s Chinatown and beyond. CYI embraces the philosophy that young people are not only tomorrow’s leaders but also leaders of today, and as such, we must help develop their ideas, passions, and skills to strengthen their sense of self worth, as well as their families, communities, and ultimately, our global community.
