Nancie Tripodi; Portrait by Bruce Plotkin

Serendipity’s Girls’ Night Out is a socially conscious evening that combines fashion, food and fun, all to support great causes. Held this year on April 21 at The Loading Dock in Stamford, CT, the event gave guests the opportunity to shop, mingle and honor the philanthropists who contribute to the community. An enthusiastic crowd cheered as these charitable models (and kids!) showed off fresh spring looks. The party continued with gourmet cuisine from caterer Abigail Kirsch, refreshing lemon cocktails from Keel Vodka and dance hits performed by the popular band Sweet & Meaty. In between, guests shopped for gorgeous clothing and jewelry, sampled expert beauty services and products and tasted fine wines. These individuals are heroes in the community for their efforts to help vital causes. Meet the men, women and children who made Girls’ Night Out a success.

Her role: Board member

Mission: Endeavor promotes the benefits of horse riding and other equine activities to individuals with physical, social, cognitive and emotional needs.

What drew you to this charity? “Its simple yet  profound approach to helping people find inner peace and joy through interaction with horses. I volunteer with the at-risk youth programs and have seen the immense benefits first-hand. These programs facilitate self regulation, body awareness and relationship conflict resolution. I myself have learned a tremendous amount, and plan to start taking riding lessons.”
