Dos Equis Masquerade | Financial District

This week Dos Equis took over the Financial District for their Dos Equis Masquerade. Attendees danced into the night wearing decorative masks, while entertainers such as contortionists, stilt walkers, and human chandeliers strolled among them. "The Most Interesting Man in the World" was even there, and while he doesn't always go to parties, when he does, it's at a Kagency Venue.

Our friends at Mirrorball produced the elaborate event and designed multiple engaging experiences for guests to discover throughout the evening - a speakeasy, a vault, there was even a
synchronized waltz under crystal chandeliers. Guests moved between experiences and were able to enjoy two separate DJs, and a live band in different rooms performing simultaneoulsy. Everywhere you looked, it was a feast for the eyes.

Greenlight A Vet | Midtown

On Veteran's Day, The Kagency hosted the Greenlight A Vet headquarters at one of our Midtown venues. The initiative is an homage to veterans and it is sweeping the nation. People nationwide have already joined the movement to show their support by switching out a publicly visible light in their home with a green bulb. The movement asks supporters to share this light as a symbol of hope, renewal and wellbeing for the veterans.
Individual veterans' stories were shared throughout the space and inspired those who attended. People nationwide were given the opportunity to share their support online on and those numbers were displayed on "The Greenlight Beacon" at the venue. The numbers climbed throughout the day in support of these heroes. Thank you to Sweetery NYC  who produced the exhibit with the help of Saatchi & Saatchi. Together they created a memorable experience for all.

DJ Mad Marj | Baby Buggy 
Last Monday, Baby Buggy celebrated their 15th Anniversary with  DJ Mad Marj. The organization that helps children and families overcome poverty, opened their event with a hilarious comedy set by Amy Schumer, followed by none other than Jerry Seinfeld. After the show, our own DJ Mad Marj took to the decks to spin for the A-list cocktail party at the New York Historical Society. The event raised an astounding $1.975 Million Dollars. We caught up with Mad Marj afterward who said it best, "I loved being a part of Baby Buggy's 15th Anniversary Celebration. The heart and soul of my dear friend Jessica Seinfeld came shining through with the tremendous funds that were raised. It was a fantastic event."

DJ Leslie Kirchhoff | Topshop 

This week Topshop hosted a holiday shopping event with iconic R&B star Ciara, recently named the fashion brand's new ambassador. The evening opened with a Q&A session with Ciara, where the singer revealed some of her favorite style secrets. After the interview, DJ Leslie Kirchoff kicked off the fashion show for the retailer's Fall/Winter collection. New York’s hottest models strutted down the runway as guests enjoyed champagne and chocolates. Rumor has it, the guest of honor, Ciara, was even a big fan of Leslie Kichhoff. We can't say we're surprised!
