The next generation of inspired, philanthropic New Yorkers gathered together on Thursday, August 13 at Studio 450 to support the Robin Hood Foundation’s fight against local poverty.


The unified crowd, dressed in all-white, saw young, cool, and influential faces including: Coco and Breezy Dotson, Grace Lee, Mischa BartonKissey Asplund, Aaron Hilton, Alison Bergen, Mia Moretti, Yarten Sartena, Taylor Kraemer, Taylor Wiederhorn, Brooke Weiderhorn, Kate Greer, Gerard Adams, Taylor McKimens, Thomas Keown, Remmington Nelson, and Scott Ellaway.


The Young Philanthropist Gala, hosted by Brett Barna, Benjamin Draper, Cory Perlson, and Noah Traisman, comes just months after Robin Hood’s record-breaking event at the Javits Center that drew a crowd of over 4,000 donors, and raised a collective $101 million. Though much smaller in scale, the most recent event, a branch of the one-year-old Philanthropic Young Things (P.Y.T.) initiative, was held as part of the Foundation’s goals of expanding and sustaining its charitable army for years to come.


Guests enjoyed a night of giving back while listening to live music and sipping cocktails, surrounded by the skyscrapers of our favorite city.
