It may have been my first time at the Let’s Bond Benefit Event at Le Salon Richmond but it certainly won’t be my last. The organizing crew and event producers at 4u2c Creative Agency Group outdid themselves, dazzling the 1000+ young influencers in attendance with a slew of star-making highlights, from the first-rate food and drink to moving performances by the likes of Valerie Daure and DJ Toddy Flores. Topping off the ‘90s in Siberia’ James Bond-themed spectacular? Over a quarter mil for the Mental Illness and Douglas Institute Foundations. Bonding done right. Photography DAN PROKOPOWICZ
