New York Young Leaders Summer in The City 2015

On Thursday, July 30th, the New York Young Leaders and supporters gathered at Patroon in Midtown Manhattan for their annual “Summer In The City” celebration.

Led by New York Steering Committee Chair Rob MacGoey, over 100 Young Leaders, friends and supporters braved summer storms and oppressive heat to enjoy a night of fun and philanthropy for the Promising Ireland Campaign.

While guests sipped summer cocktail favorites, the friendly Patroon staff passed delicious hors d’oeuvres for the guests.

Young Leader friend and favorite John Malone provided live entertainment on the guitar with his own take on Irish and American rock classics.

Later in the evening, National Director of The Young Leaders, Pat Tully greeted the guests and introduced the evening’s special guests, Giants Super Bowl champion Adam Koets and actor Holt McCallany to the delight of the crowd.

After discussing the Promising Ireland Campaign and how people can get involved, Pat invited the guests to immediately contribute to the campaign by hosting a live auction, which included a VIP driving experience, provided by BMW and a trip to Ireland to see WBO World Champion Andy Lee, defend his title in Limerick as well as the opportunity to be a VIP guest member at Bravo’s hit talk show, Watch What Happens Live provided by Young Leader Deirdre Connolly.
