On Saturday, All Star Code, one of the nation’s leading tech inclusion organizations, held their 3rd Annual Summer Benefit in East Hampton, NY. The evening was hosted by CBS’ Maurice DuBois and honored Google’s Elliott Breece and Cisco’s Hilton Romanski.
The event drew a who’s who crowd of both Hamptons and tech elite as it has for the past two years. This year, VIPs like supermodel and TV Personality Jessica White, former NBA player Jay Williams, as well as Charles Rangel, David Dinkins and more attended the largest gathering of the tech industry in the Hamptons.
For the third consecutive year, the evening was a packed and inspiring event with an oceanfront cocktail reception as well as interactive games, web applications and demonstrations all created and showcased by All Star Code’s very own students. This year’s featured stations included Trigger Safe, a security technology for firearms that uses fingerprint scans to avoid improper use, and The Young Hackers, where guests got to experience what it’s like to organize and attend a hackathon.
Guests also enjoyed a seated dinner catered by honorary co-chair Marcus Samuelsson, featuring dishes from his popular Harlem restaurant, Red Rooster. MICK returned to the DJ booth again this year and had the crowd on their feet dancing the night away.
