Join us for the 11th consecutive year of this internationally-recognized event that embodies the luxury lifestyle of James Bond through fashion, high-profile networking, and curated entertainment.

Each year, the event brings together an eclectic mix of C-level executives, high net worth influencers, young professionals, and other fantastically interesting people for guests to mix and mingle with. In the end, countless high-level connections have been made, while collectively raising over 70k for charity, using cocktails and 007 as the catalyst!

This year we celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the James Bond films and officially kick of Pittsburgh Fashion Week, while benefitting Animal Friends and their fight to ensure a humane and compassionate future for all animal companions. The action will take place at the Rivers Private Members Club in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.

Our VIP pre-parties are infamous. They sell out every year. Last year's event took things to the next level with champagne drone delivery and a number of other curated details. This year's event includes a unique immersive holographic experience, the world's largest human passenger drone, and much more...
