New York, NY (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
Carbon NYC will host its third annual, highly anticipated charity fundraising event, the Spring Charity Soirée on May 11, 2012. Carbon will take over Center 548 (548 West 22nd Street) to put on an artistic feast for the senses complete with live performances by award winning artists, a contemporary art exhibition and sale curated by Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, New York’s top DJs, a silent auction of one-of-a-kind experiences and luxury items, hors d’oeuvres by renowned caterers and a sponsored open bar. The fundraising event will support arts education and access in underserved New York communities by raising funds for the education programs of Lincoln Center and, in part, Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation.
The event comes on the heels of 2011’s sold-out event, which raised $100,000 for Bronx-based CampInteractive and featured a performance by award-winning musical artist, Jose Conde, a contemporary art auction, two internationally renowned DJs, Lili Lamar and Brendan Fallis, gourmet hors d’oeuvres from Betel, and bar sponsored by MEDEA Vodka, Tanteo, Chivas Regal, and Stella Artois. In 2010, Carbon supported charity: water through their Charity Soirée and has since made a commitment to spearhead at least one major philanthropic initiative annually. Tickets will be available for purchase starting in early March for $250 or VIP table service for $5,000 at AboutLincolnCenter.org/carbon-nyc.
