Elite Professional Networking Group,
        Friends of Black Tie International Magazine,
Giorgio G Cognac
(from famous designer Giorgio Gucci) &
Valentines Day Red Carpet Event
ARTICLE BY: Gloria T. Cressler
                          Photos by: Barry Brown  www.barrybrown.com
Our Valentines Day Celebration Party at the TRUMP TOWER WORLD BAR, was another smashing smashing success!  This unique event was hosted by Elite Professional Networking Group,
 co-hosted by Black Tie International Magazine, Giorgio G Cognac  (of Designer Giorgio Gucci) and Emperors Vodka.
The party was yet another well-attended event with wonderful, talented people. Everyone had a wonderful time making new friends and reconnecting with old acquaintances.  With so much great food, music and fun, it’s not surprising so many special professionals stayed late!  We had to shoo everyone out at 11:00 pm.
Some of our very special guests for the evening were: Ms. Ingeborg Caroline Johnson, President of the New York City International Film Festival, Mr. Roberto Rizzo, Founder and CEO of the New York City International Film Festival. Ms Johnson is an elegant, classy lady. They were very pleasant and  were eager to share their experiences and knowledge with our other guests. 
If you didn’t know, the New York City International Film Festival, It will be held from August 11 to August 14.  Films from every corner of the world will be showcased in theaters throughout the Times Square area. Celebrities will be attending on different opening nights, and there will be many special activities during these four exciting days. Please feel free to contact us if your company is interested in sponsoring, participating and attending all or part of the many fun filled ”happenings” during the International Film Festival.
Also attending our Valentine’s Day Party was award winning producer, director and writer Dean Love.  You undoubtedly have seen some of his many films like Life in Mars, Queen Elizabeth I - (The Virgin Queen). He is now working on a film about Ireland, a television show about New York City and a project about European royalties. Then, he is off to Asia to start filming another movie. Mr. Dean is very personal and engaging.  This a-list personality tried to talk to everybody at our party, but there was simply not enough time! 
 We’ll be sure to have him back!
(This reminds me of when the famous Designer Mr. Giorgio Gucci was in New York.  We launched his Giorgio G Cognac at a welcome parties at the Trump Tower and at the Pierre Hotel.  Although we had a “full house” Mr. Gucci took the time to talk to everyone!,  Mr. Love and Mr. Gucci are very, very kind people.)  
Joseph Maseritti President of Movie Makers, and his group, flew in directly from the Grammys to be in our event.  They had a wonderful time.  Princess Tarina Von An Holt also attended our event and launch her Jean line at Couture Fashion this weekend.
See her website at www.jetartworld.com,
Our Lovely Susan Korwin, accompanied by her celebrity dentist husband Dr. Robert Korwin, was at the party to launch her dynamic new book titled "Simple Strides Towards Positive Change: Lessons From Life Coaching". Susan is a life and style coach.  Throughout the evening she discussed her book and signed copies for her many new fans.  If you missed getting her book, go right now to http://www.susankorwin.com/wordpress/shop
Mr. Nick Alissi the President and Founder of Alessi AR-1 Supercar. had a table at the event to promote his new supercars –the AR-1.  Part racecar, part streetcar,  the AR-1 has cutting age style and out of this world performance.  All are custom built with a limited production to fifty cars. Many of our guests were very impress and interested with the car, so it was a nice evening for Mr. Alessi.

We also had entertainment by Allan Harold and his band consisting of Satchel Jones (lead guitar), Ed Lewis (drums) & Christina Lorca (bass) . The group sang both pop and country songs.  The guests loved the music and they keep on asking them to sing one more song. Allan Harold is often invited several times to sing in Nashville.  Next month they will be touring throughout the country. I think we are going to see Allen hit the big time in the very near future and maybe on TV too!  And of course our friend Cristina Fontinella stopped by to render us another song that everyone enjoyed.
My birthday is Valentine’s Day, so we celebrated it that night with a birthday cake.  Cornelia Kaufmann, one of our guests, also celebrated her February birthday with her own cake.  We blew the candles out together. while the band and the guests sang Happy Birthday. The cake was served to everyone and was delicious. We credit Natalie Stern, President of Stern Gallery for ordering such a terrific cake -she takes good care of us. Several of the Modeling and Talent Agency sent their models and actresses to be a part of our event. 
They had a great time mingling with the guests.
The goals of our events are to honor our returning veterans. We thank them and their families for their sacrifices. (We thank you also for supporting them) We can not give them Street parades, but we will try to honor them, Every month we will have different veterans to honor. We also support several veteran charity organizations, like the Disabled, Blinded, Hospitalized, Paralyzed Veterans, Wounded Soldiers, Support Our Troops, Angel Soldiers, Vietnam Veterans.
 and many more.
We also launch different companies, actors, movies, artists, singers, 
fashion designers and different types of businesses.
Kenneth McClure General Manager of Trump Tower World Bar and Vice President of Hospitality Holdings and his staff  prepared  a number of delicious foods, and special drinks for the guests.  So many people told me how much they loved and enjoyed the food. And all the staff gave us a very good service.  Because it is my birthday, I got a lot of champagne toast – which is also for my good health. I also want to thank my friends who brought me birthday presents
 I will treasure them.
