It was a midsummer night's dream in October this year, at The Knot's annual gala. We provided woodland creatures, and illuminated fairies en pointe to mingle with guests in the New York Public Library for this extravagant event.
We were honored to be a part of the City Harvest: Summer in the City fundraiser, featuring our shimmery gold Aerial Bartenders on the lollipop lyra, while our beautiful electric violinist performed alongside the DJ, setting the scene to a fabulous night where almost $400k was raised to help combat hunger in NYC!
From the City Harvest Facebook:
"Last night's Summer in the City raised nearly $400,000 to support our work fighting hunger in New York City! Over 700 of our supporters joined us at the IAC HQ to enjoy food and drinks from some of the city's hottest chefs and mixologists. Thank you to our Culinary Hosts Michael Chernow of SEAMORE'S, Suzanne Cupps of Untitled (at the Whitney Museum), Dale Talde of Talde, and Pamela Wiznitzer of Seamstress NY for curating a one-of-a-kind evening for our guests! Thank you to our Summer in the City sponsors and partners, including Stella Artois, Breville, Empire Merchants, evian, I. Halper Paper & Supplies Inc., NBA Cares, Taylor Creative Inc., Tilit NYC, TOSSWARE, and Great Performances. We'd also like to thank our aerialist bartenders and Rebecca Cherry from Shien Artists and DJ Jennifly for providing great entertainment throughout the night!

It's a truly exciting moment when we can provide entertainment and be apart of events with such admirable causes! This past February, Shien Artists in production with Jared Reichert, contributed our lovely talents to the stage of the Queen of Hearts Ball & Casino Night fundraiser at Guastavino's in NYC for CareOne in efforts to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). $1.7million was raised in the fight to eradicate breast cancer, the second leading cancer killer in American women.
We were honored to be providing this year's featured entertainment for the annual DKMS Blood Ball in the fight against blood cancer! With the help of so many, they were able to raise over $440k in donations to help fund more bone marrow donor registrations and save more lives.

This past October, The Knot celebrated 20 wonderful years in the wedding industry along with the end of Bridal Fashion week by bringing us their 7th annual gala held at the New York Public Library. The Fêtes des Rêves theme was brought to life by the fabulous Strawberry Milk Events and lucky for us, SHIEN Artists had been invited to provide all of the exquisite entertainment!
