Showcasing the captivating works of renowned artist Daniel Anderson, the gallery's halls reverberated with creativity and passion, rewarding all who attended.

Contemporary abstract sculptor and painter Daniel Anderson, hailing from Pompton Plains, New Jersey. His vision is inspired by highly mechanical and mathematical methods, and allow his works to transcend traditional forms, exhibited in his signature ‘sculpted canvas’ DIFFUSION SERIES, in which he portrays the buildup and breakdown of matter by rendering depth with light and shadow. 

Guiding the evening with elegance and warmth were world-famous celebrity host and actor Rick Sykes, along with the enchanting opera performances by Veronica Iovan and Massimiliano Sims. Adding to the ambiance was the mesmerizing music of DJ Layla, further elevating the experience. Guests were treated to a sensory feast as Lea Rose graced the stage with her soulful singing performance.

Meanwhile, Meriam unveiled her exquisite Caftan Couture fashion line, offering guests a glimpse into "One of a Kind" limited edition fashion crafted from lovingly detailed natural dye printed silk and chiffon fabrics. Meriam, celebrated for her exquisite caftans, captivates the attention of many celebrities.

However, the heart of the event beat for a cause close to many: Ruff Rescue Charity 242. Dedicated to rescuing and rehoming Potcake dogs from the streets of the Bahamas, this charity relies on the generosity of supporters like CM Club and its members to make a difference.
