The Webutante Ball was in full effect Tuesday night at Marquee in New York City! As one of the most anticipated New York Internet Week events, this sold-out party hosted the who’s who in Technology, Social Media and beyond!
As soon as Catherine and I hit the scene we were ready to have a good time! I immediately made a B-Line for the dancefloor filled with balloons!
Now in it’s third year, The Webutante Ball is the place to check-in to for a good cause during Internet Week New York. It has gained national press attention, and was featured on CNN, New York Post, Gawker, Mediabistro, New York Magazine and many others. For the past few years, The Webutante Ball has hosted the internet’s biggest and brightest movers and shakers. Past “webutantes” include New York interest personalities from Tumblr, Foursquare, Gawker and more. It’s where internet celebs gather to toast the emergence of new media in popular culture and where reformed geeks (like myself) become belles of the ball!
This year The Webutante Ball – hosted by Richard Blakeley partnered with Salvate and Techies Give Back to raise over $50,000 for The Michael J. Fox Foundation to raise money for Parkinson’s research.
