Hot, young & sexy -- at CGMi

Lara Edelbaum, Tony LaGravenis (both of Pseudo) and Karen Yedvab ( were just three of the young urban hip new media shakers at the swingin' party hosted Wednesday, August 18th at The Supper Club by CMGi. Neil Cohen of AdAuction made it through the day too (I saw him first thing at the iBreakfast) and Tery Spataro was moving and schmoozin with Susan Sigel of (which just got funded and is hiring!). Robert Adler of introduced me to Owen Weed and on my way downstairs to the dance floor I chatted with Mark Frieser of Xceed. Downstairs I caught up with Renee Edelman of PR21 and became reaquainted with Key Compton and Gary Gluck of Solbright. The relaunch (this week) of their new website and digital solutions software was cause for celebration. Martinis floated by in the dainty hands of tall successful beautiful women, and cigar smoke wafted by from athletic business guys in striped suits, the Swing party was in full (er) swing and the dancing was picking up! On my way out Jodie Kahn of 24/7 told me of their successful charity benefit for MOUSE at the Chelsea Piers and brewing company. Several hundred new media New Yorkers and Jupiter attendees came and tried their hands at golf, and assisted in raising reportedly several thousands of dollars for this very worthwhile non-profit for students and schools. Hoorah!
