Some of New York's most philanthropic entrepreneurs gathered in West Chelsea on Friday for the Project Commencement Charity Event. More story...The event was held at The XChange, where money was raised in support of education for underprivileged children overseas.  Taylor Breed, John Falkenberg and Evan Kornack, the founders of the Project Commencement organization, hosted the event as a fundraiser for their mission to build schools in Nicaragua, Mali and Nepal, countries that would otherwise be unable to provide proper education for their more poverty stricken citizens.  Many generous New Yorkers came out to donate to the cause and show their support by participating in an auction, the proceeds of which went to the organization's educational fund.
