After meeting Emily — not our co-founder Emily 🙂 — Emily’s brother Coby and the unbelievable organization they’ve developed to fight nonsense mutations of Cystic Fibrosis, Emily’s Entourage, we decided to help. In three weeks we recruited our incredibly generous and talented friends and raised over $10,000 while sharing a special moment in time.
Magical musical performances by Gabi Holzwarth and Lexie Lowell were complemented by a live art demonstration from Ian Sullivan, remarks from Coby (our third co-chair) and Eesho co-founders Judah Levine and Emily Priebe, an emotionally-charged call-to-action video from Emily’s Entourage, a feast of epic proportions from Casellula Wine & Cheese Cafe, and experiential activations from our close friends and sponsors KIMIKO, Copra, Veranera, Boudoir By Nomi, and Owyn.
Auction items were donated by Axel Mansoor, Danielle Vincent, Ben Sheridan, Maya Levine, Ezra Levine, Katie Levine, Andrew Giacomi, Dave Schnur, Laura Velasquez, Alex Alvarez, Nick Berman, Nomi Ellenson, Spark Pretty and Local Leaf. The rooftop fundraiser was sound engineered by Alex Silver, photographed by Nomi Ellenson and shot by Ghetto Community founder Cisco.
