K2 - The Final Conquest by Vanessa O’Brien
K2 Quiz with prizes by Arc’Teryx Soho
GET YOUR TICKET NOW!
Please join us for the 37th annual Metro NY Section social & dinner. This year we will focus on the event's social aspects allowing more time for mingling and group interaction. There will not be an auction or fundraising aspect to the dinner.
Known as The Savage Mountain, K2 had never had an American woman reach the summit before this year when Vanessa O’Brien was able to beat the odds and stand on the summit. Join us as we hear Vanessa recount tales of attempting K2 over the course of three years and see if you have what it takes to win the K2 Quiz that was played at K2 Base Camp this year.
Tickets sellout, so reserve early for this not-to-be-missed event!
Thank you to our beverage sponsor, Proskauer Rose LLP, and our quiz prize sponsors Arc’Teryx Soho.
Hope to see you there!
