Brooklyn Defender Services Benefit Gala

Philanthropic work is very important to TK New York, so it was only natural that we took on another charity event this year. Brooklyn Defender Services is a public defender organization that represents 45,000 people a year who cannot afford an attorney, and in 2014 they had their first annual gala fundraising event. It was very important to our client that Brooklyn was highlighted from beginning to end. What better way to capture this then by having the event at the gorgeous Skylight One Hanson, the fully-restored former Willamsburgh Savings Bank Clocktower. As guests entered the cavernous space, they felt warm and welcomed by decadent florals and amber up lighting on the walls and ceiling. Special lighting was installed to highlight the famous one-of-a-kind mosaic Brooklyn mural in the venue. Working with partners of BDS, TK New York integrated two live art installations by Brooklyn artists. The evening closed by honoring Martin Edelman, ESQ with spoken word performances. It is our honor to work with such giving, caring, and inspiring people.
