Last Thursday night, a chic crowd gathered at Brooklyn Bowl for a night of disco and dancing in support of Space For Giants, a nonprofit organization keeping elephants and their landscapes safe. Live music and entertainment was provided by The Soul Rebels and The Marching Cobras while guests bowled and sipped signature cocktails. Seth Herzog served as a comedic entertainment and auctioneer, selling artwork, a guitar signed by the evening’s headlining musician, a luxury safari experience, and more. The proceeds will go to Space for Giants’ scientists and specialists who diligently work to tackle the poaching problem in Africa.
Guests danced the night away with a lively performance by iconic musician Nile Rodgers of Chic. Rodgers sang hits including Le Freak, Upside Down, and the original Get Lucky, covered by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams. Notables included Lexi Bowes-Lyon, Space For Giants’ US Philanthropy Director (and cousin to Prince William and Harry!), Thierry Lasry, Saada Ahmed , Alex Chantecaille, Bevin Butler, Justin Livingston, and Moti Ankari. Space for Giants has already helped reduce poaching by 84% where it works in Kenya. It takes $100 to protect an elephant in the wild in Africa for a year. The proceeds from last night are certain to go quite far!
