Endeavor Gala 2023
December 2023. New York City, Glasshouse
In December 2023, Endeavor once again held their annual Gala at New York’s Glasshouse, featuring floor-to-ceiling views of New York City and the Hudson River. Guests first entered into the Drinks & Experiences space, where they enjoyed innovative hors d'oeuvres by Pinch Food Design and specialty cocktail & mocktail bars provided by Los Amantes, Drought, Rabbit Hole, NotCo and Thrive Farmers. After cocktails guests proceeded through an experiential hallway into the main area for the seated dinner in the massive, designed space where table centerpieces, screen content, flown lighting and printed collateral all mirrored Endeavor’s colorful, visual event theme.
The dinner program included keynote remarks by Endeavor Co-Founder and CEO, Linda Rottenberg and Managing Partner of West, Joanna Rees. There was also a fireside chat between Martin Escobari and David Vélez. Endeavor celebrated the achievements of Gibran Huzaifah, Karim Beguir, and Sergio Fogel by presenting them with The Lindas award. The program was then brought to a close with an invitation to the High-Impact Party hosted by Hannah Bronfman. Of course, this spectacular dinner segment was catered and serviced by Pinch Food Design.
After dinner, guests moved through a neon-lit tunnel to the High-Impact Party in the cocktail space, which had been transformed into an upscale lounge featuring music by MICK, a Plinko Board to win prizes consisting of products from Endeavor Entrepreneurs, a secluded space with mental health murals, and an immersive art gallery highlighting key high-impact entrepreneurs.
