This Saturday over 60,000 people gathered on Central Park’s Great Lawn to support Global Citizen Festival’s goal to end to extreme poverty by 2030. Relish Caterers + Event Planning was the exclusive caterer in the VIP tent, accommodating more than 2,000 VIP Guests to an Asian inspired menu. Citibank was a featured sponsor within the tent and treated their 60 guests to a private dinner featuring a seasonally inspired, contemporary American menu.
Concertgoers enjoyed a stellar 6 hour concert with performances by Bono, Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Elvis Costello, and Stevie Wonder. Speakers and special guests included Olivia Wilde, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Princess Mary of Denmark, and numerous U.S. Congressmen.
