TTN-NYC Spring Festival Update

April 1, 2019

By Mary McCaffrey 


Spring Festival is our chapter’s largest event ever, and it’s free to all members and their guests!  Our beautiful venue, HUC at One West 4th Street, is more than twice as large as the space where TTN’s previous Festival was held.

That means more room for you to mingle with wine and delectables while learning about all TTN has to offer, more space for live demos and entertainment, an expanded silent auction, and even a guest speaker (Ruth Messinger, current Global Ambassador for AJWS and former Manhattan Borough President).

The silent auction will feature 50 items that speak to every need and interest, including estate planning and personal training services, restaurant and fashion gift certificates, artwork, jewelry, theater tickets, and more.  Looking for a little spring indulgence? You have the opportunity to bid on a package for two at The Lodge at Woodloch Spa, the award-winning destination spa resort.  Thinking about a new ‘do? Go for that Arrojo Studio Soho Cut-and-Color package. And who doesn’t want new fashion accessories? You could be one of the lucky bidders on the tassel necklace or cuff bracelet from designer Alexis Bittar’s current collection.  The live demos will be informative and entertaining.  Representatives from Innovation Luggage will guarantee that your next packing experience is easy and anxiety-free.  Beauty advisors from L’Occitane en Provence will demonstrate healthy 10-minute face and hand massages on lucky TTN volunteers, and a Clarins makeup artist will teach how to apply like a pro. Pamela Rief, a Stanford Medical School-educated biomechanist, will show us ways to simply improve and correct the way we move, thus feeling less pain and more joy in our daily lives.

We greatly appreciate the generosity of our sponsors for making this event possible, including Tower Legal Solutions (Platinum), Douglas Elliman Real Estate (Gold), The Portfolio Strategy Group (Silver), BestWork, Inc, Innovation Luggage, Nationwide Office Products Group, and Professional Physical Therapy (Bronze sponsors).

This is a fabulous opportunity to celebrate with fellow TTNers, and to introduce prospective members to the TTN experience. All attendees must be registered prior to the event. So, don’t wait another minute – register now!
