+ POOL Party

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Guests literally plunged into fundraising for Friends of + Pool last night, July 27, as they donned their swim shorts for the first Annual Pool Party.

The event on the rooftop of Hotel Americano was held in aid of the + Pool project, which aims to create New York’s first water-filtering, floating pool. The self-filtering pool would clean up to half a million gallons of water a day without using chemicals, making it possible to swim in the city’s rivers for the first time.

The water-loving crowd at Hotel Americano enjoyed drinks and snacks while DJ Pumpkin Patch provided the tunes.

Limited edition swimwear from Mike Perry in collaboration with #PrintAllOverMe was available at the event, and many guests jumped into the pool to test out the underwater photo booth from PHHHOTO.
