Resolve 2013, Party of the Year!

Resolution Project's Resolve 2013

This past Thursday I attended The Resolution Project’s ( annual gala, Resolve 2013, at The Harvard Club of New York City!

The Resolution Project is an organization that I believe very strongly in—it aims to provide aspiring world leaders the resources, knowledge, and pathways to initiate positive social change.  Through The Resolution Project, undergrads receive mentorship and support while launching unique social ventures in a variety of fields ranging from environmental sustainability, to women’s rights, to public health.

I firmly believe that education is the key to social change, and The Resolution Project’s mission to foster our world’s next generation of global leader’s is a forward-thinking approach.  By pairing experts with students, Resolution is taking the next step to ensure that our world has a brighter future, and the work of those before us not only continues, but endures with generations to come.

Thursday’s gala was interactive, informative and extremely fun.  Stations were set up showcasing each venture The Resolution Project supports, and giving the Resolution Fellows an opportunity to speak individually about the initiatives they’re spear-heading. It’s really inspiring to see people my age who are so passionate and committed to bettering the world, and being able to hear their stories one-on-one.

Another highlight of the evening was their live auction, lead by the legendary Hugh Hidesley of Sotheby’s, featuring opportunities such as tickets to the Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Edition launch party in Las Vegas, all inclusive trips to exotic destinations, and a year’s (yes one year’s) supply of vodka.

(If they were auctioning off whiskey I would have considered the 2,000+ dollars the item started at to practically be a bargain—they’d just have to let me bring my own bottles to Manitoba’s from now on.)

Overall, the event was fantastic.  The Harvard Club is such a beautiful venue, the crowd was upbeat and friendly, and the goodie bags were hands-down the best of any event I’ve been to all year.  (I mean—gift certificates, shampoo, cookies, KIND bars, and a BOX OF CEREAL?!  Yes, please.)

Plus, the organization is unparalleled.  What other global initiative is both Clinton Global Initiative & Karlie Kloss approved?  Now that’s powerful.
