Once inside, VIP guests will have an opportunity to mix and mingle with some of Manhattan's elite while viewing interactive product displays from some of the latest and greatest in everything from fashion to technology. While a portion of all proceeds from the event will be donated to the organization, we also kindly ask that VIP guests bring an unwrapped toy for the toy drive, which will then be delivered to some the children that Safe Horizon serves. Complimentary cocktails will be provided by Alizé , and entertainment from Alizé Mix Squad deejay Nicole of Nina Sky.

This event will mark the beginning of the spectacular two-day event which allows consumers to not only purchase holiday gifts from an array of brands such as Vinci, Alizé Dermalogica, Dyanne Bell Jewelry, Ogallala comfort company, Z-connector, LAQUA&CO., Croton Watches, Lu Mesh Cosmetics, Cynthia Desser Accessories, Velvet Cigars, Perfect Knot, and Popchips just to name a few, but also aims to raise money and awareness for Safe Horizon by donating a portion of all proceeds back to the organization and urging shoppers to make donations or bring in an unwrapped toy that a fleet of smart cars will be delivering to the shelters upon the events conclusion. "We hope to bring together leaders of industry to offer a unique and innovative approach to holiday shopping for a cause," remarked Thom Vest; founder of Urban Sanctuary events.
