Monica Iken, Founder of September’s Mission, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization devoted to building a positive and meaningful legacy out of the events surrounding 9/11, along with Antonio “Nino” Vendome, Owner of Studio Vendome and Nino’s Restaurant, will host an exclusive cocktail reception in support of the New York Peace Angel (NYPA) Monument on Thursday, March 31st, 2016 from 6-9 PM at Studio Vendome (330 Spring Street, New York, NY.)

The Peace Angels Project Founder and Artist, Lin Evola, will be on hand to announce the formation of a steering committee for the NYPA monument’s development, as well as to share with guests the history behind The Peace Angels Project – an endeavor twenty years in the making.

Founded in 1992 by Evola, The Peace Angels Project serves as a reminder of the worldwide epidemic of violence and our responsibility as humans to create a better world, using the melted down stainless core of street weapons and weapons of mass destruction to create powerful images of peace and unity. It is the intention of Evola to install Peace Angel monuments globally, beginning with New York and Los Angeles.

The NYPA monument will stand 64 feet tall, with its wings and gown extending the full length. Its front base, referenced as the “The Conversation,” will be comprised of two ventaglio semicircle steps, holding the figures of 36 individuals who have done “extreme good” including 18 humanitarian philanthropists and 18 humanitarian activists. “The Labyrinth” surrounding the monument will incorporate a history of New York, based on the struggles and achievements made in manifesting a city of leadership.

While sites are being distinguished for the monument, Evola is calling on the Tri-State area, East Coast and the United Nations in the collection of one million decommissioned weapons for the construction of the NYPA monument. Support for the project includes: Governor Andrew Cuomo; Senator Charles Schumer; Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg; Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani; Commissioner William Bratton; Former Commissioner Ray Kelly; Police Commissioner Chief of Staff, Joseph P. Wuensch; District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr.; Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy; The United Nations Department of Disarmament; Arie Y. Levy-Cohen, Treasurer for The Peace Angels Project and Partner & Managing Director of Tocqueville Bullion Reserve L.P.; Richard Rubenstein, President of Rubenstein Public Relations; and more.
