On Friday, January 10th, 2014, I had the pleasure of attending the 3rd Annual Silver & Gold Winter Party to benefit Roots & Wings at the Bowery Hotel. There was music by the Fantastic Mr. Fox and complimentary beverages and cocktails from 8:00- 9:30 a.m. Sponsors of the event included HeinekenTY KU Sake & Spirits and Brugal RumThe name of the party echoed a Girl Scout anthem, namely “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver; the other gold.” It was a fun-filled evening that drew together a crowd of over 600 young professionals.

Roots & Wings are passionate about and committed to improving the lives of people in overlooked economies where little or no development aid exists. They provide an unstoppable momentum for transformational change so that entrepreneurial ecosystems can prosper on their own, generation after generation. Their ideal goal is for beneficiaries to no longer need them.
