There is no other way to describe Saturday night than… EPIC! Kesha’s electric performance was truly an amazing way to celebrate 5 years of GIFF with all of you. Amy Robach and Liz Cho, from ABC News, served as our emcees for the night and introduced our amazing performers. DJ April Larken had the entire room dancing as she warmed up the crowd for Kesha and Jessie’s Girl. Connie Nielsen, Actress and Head of Social Impact Jury, and Colleen DeVeer, Director of Programming, announced our award winning films. The night ended with a set by Jessie’s Girl, who played the best throwback songs!
Diageo created delicious signature drinks with Tanqueray, Bulleit Bourbon, and Ketel One Botanicals. Guests also enjoyed food from some of the best local restaurants including Little Pub, HooDoo Brown BBQ, Tarry Lodge (Port Chester), BarTaco (Port Chester), and Fortina!
Our Casamigos Tequila VIP Lounge, at Garcia’s, was the place to be. Guests were able to enjoy the music, comfortable lounge seating, and signature Casamigos drinks!
