On Thursday April 23rd, The Audubon Society’s young members group hosted their annual “Lights Out” gala at the gorgeous Bowery Hotel Rooftop in New York City.  The well heeled ladies and bow tied men enjoyed an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction. Some of the items up for bid included La Mer beauty products, Mac makeup products and Christian Louboutin heels. Guests dance to the tunes of DJ Mick, who was seen djing the iconic Time 100 gala in NYC earlier in the week. The event’s chair, Arielle Patrick of Weber Shandwick, stunned in a Dee Hutton dress and Andrew Kayla shoes. 100% of the $30,000 dollars raised at the event will go toward Audubon New York’s important conservation, education, policy and advocacy work that aims to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. At 10pm, guests headed to Le Baron for the official after party.
