From an IVY Ideas Night with a leading Happiness Expert to a backstage pass to Art Basel, last week IVY held some incredible events across the country. We’re all about bringing people together for new and engaging ideas and adventures, whether it’s holding a Sunset Cocktail Party at PULSE Miami Beach Art Fair or an intimate happy hour with the newest IVY members.
