Art for One Drop Auction in New York
On Friday Sept. 21, Casa Dragones was proud to support the Art for One Drop Auction at Phillips auction house in Manhattan. The $8,797,600 raised went to the international nonprofit One Drop, created in 2007 by Cirque du Soleil-founder Guy Laliberté, who hosted the evening. The organization helps provide access to clean water and sustainable sanitation for impoverished communities worldwide.
Guests began the night with champagne and Casa Dragones Joven as they perused the 51 works donated for auction. The impressive selection included pieces by world-renowned contemporary artists including Gabriel Orozco, Jenny Holzer, and Ai Weiwei.
At the afterparty, Casa Dragones debuted a signature cocktail called The One Drop, which blends Casa Dragones Blanco, fresh lime juice, St-Germain, sparkling water, and a mint garnish. In the spirit of sustainability, Casa Dragones presented The One Drop as part of a singular installation inspired by a coral. Whimsical dancers and circus performers plucked each “drop” hanging from an arm of the coral, decanted the cocktail over an extra-large ice cube, and offered it to a guest.
Guests also were treated to a ceviche bar by TAO group as they marveled at fanciful circus performances that circulated through the party.
