Cocktail event to raise money for 'horseless carriages' in NYC announced

If you’re going to be in the Manhattan area this Thursday, May 3, don’t miss out on the “Horseless Carriage Cocktail Party” which will be held to raise money for the new and improved “horseless carriage.”

It’s important that money be raised for the new, eco-friendly cars, which will replace horse-drawn carriages in New York City. It will provide a much cleaner way of transportation and will also be safer and friendlier for the horses.

NYCLASS will hold the cocktail party from 7-11 pm on Thursday, so be sure to get your tickets fast! The event will feature vegan hors d’oeuvres, drinks and dancing, and a silent auction featuring VIP tickets to a taping of both Chelsea Lately and Ellen, plus sports tickets and artwork. This exciting event will take place at the Tribeca Three-Sixty, at 10 Desbrosses Street in NYC. Don’t miss it!

The honorary chairs of the event feature Chelsea Handler and Kathy Najimy, but many other celebrities have shown their support for eliminating the cruel and dirty horse-drawn carriage industry, such as Kristin Chenoweth, Lea Michele and Anjelica Huston.

 “We couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming cocktail party with this incredible host committee and our honorary co-chairs, Kathy Najimy and Chelsea Handler,” said Carly Marie Knudson, executive director of NYCLASS. “The event will give us an opportunity to connect our amazing supporters who share a common purpose – to end the abusive carriage horse industry in New York and replace it with an eco-friendly, animal-friendly and job-producing tourism attraction.”

Tickets for the event start at $225 per person, but cheaper tickets are available for those under the age of 30. Remember, all proceeds go toward supporting the production of the “Horseless Carriage.”

Be a part of something that could change New York City for the better, and eventually the rest of the world. To register for the event or for more information, please visit www.nyclass.org/horselesscocktails, or contact Carly Marie Knudson at 212-626-6990 or at horselesscocktails@nyclass.com.
