The Sumeria Group is known for hosting fantastic events catered towards young professionals wanting to have a great time – all towards a great cause.  This Cinco de Mayo, Sumeria Group is teaming up with Strive for College to host another epic party at the Roseland Ballroom.

Dressed to the nines, a ton of young professionals came out to hear DJ Cassidy spin at the event for what was sure to be an epic dance party.

Though the event wasn’t officially a Cinco de Mayo themed party, some guests brought their own sombreros while others donned seer-sucker suits, undoubtedly coming from a Kentucky Derby bash beforehand.

For this event, Sumeria Group teamed up with Strive for College, a national non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating the inequality in access to higher education.

Earlier this year, the Sumeria Group threw a Winterfest Benefit for St. Joseph School, and last fall’s Liberty Ball for MyGoodDeed was unforgettable.  Each season, they keep adding to their roster of charities that they’ve helped out, not only in NYC but also in Boston.  Soon they will also be expanding into DC, San Francisco and Philadelphia, so check out how you can get involved.
