We spy a Pelonkey ninja at the 5th Anniversary MES Masquerade mixer!

Being keen as ever, Pelonkey CEO DJ Neekola hopped around the Metro Events Specialists 5th Anniversary Masquerade party without anyone knowing who she was until her reveal!

The MES event did not disappoint! Taking place at the beautiful Carnegie Library at Mt Vernon Square, the venue was completely decked out for the occasion.

Beautiful lights and draping landscaped the rooms and halls, and strange but brilliant masked creatures turned up around every corner, making the night take on a mythical vibe!

Neekola had an incredible time munching on tasty little treats and morsels, dancing to the band, enjoying a libation or two from the open bar, getting her picture snapped left and right from the Umbrella Syndicate, socializing with friends, and networking Pelonkey with the best professionals the DMV events industry has to offer.

Benefiting both the Human Rights Campaign’s Project One America and the DC Center for LGBT Community, the event featured exquisite little bites from Art and Soul as well as gourmet hot dogs, and a fully stocked bar for the cocktail connoisseur!

The event sold over 200 tickets, packing out the pool house rooftop! Pelonkey’s very own DJ Neekola very much enjoyed spinning upbeat lounge and house music for all of the guests, eager to grab a second with Chef Art!

The beneficiaries for the evening lay close to Chef Art’s heart. The Human Rights Campaign launched Project One America in attempts to bring more equality to the Southern states of the US, where LGBT rights are discriminated against and often times ignored. The DC Center of the LGBT Community is also looking to advance rights in the local city area.
