Last night Pioneer Works held their 2nd Annual Village Fête hosted by: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, Dustin Yellin, Lazaro Hernandez & Jack McCollough, Lauren & Andres Santo Domingo, Paola Antonelli, Swizz Beatz, Mike D, Janna Levin, and Shirin Neshat. The stylish affair took place on Sunday, May 3rd followed by an After Party in Redhook, Brooklyn.
The well-heeled crowd enjoyed a cocktail reception, silent auction, and dinner catered by The Cleaver company during the live auction conducted by Alexander Gilkes, co-founder of Paddle8. In honor of Pioneer Works, artfully crafted concoctions, as well as a DIY Bombay Sapphire EAST Gin & Tonic bar were evening standouts, where guests customized their own G&T using a variety of exotic botanicals including Lemongrass, Peppercorn, Asian Pears, Cinnamon sticks, almonds, allspice and lime wheels — each one highlighting the unique flavor profile of the gin.
