Celebrating the commitment of Risa Pulver and Samantha Shanken, who founded the Research Institution and were also chairing last night's event, elegant cocktails and wine were paired with food in the large airy venue that was once a bank. The event also included a silent auction of luxury, one-of-a-kind items.
