Simply May-velous

Editor: Black Tie International Magazine


Interviews by: Producer Michael Giakumelos and
 Reporter Stephen Diacrussi of MGTVUSA



Our May Celebration Red Carpet event was a May-valous success. While the evening’s weather was cold and rainy, the crowd was warm and sunny. Our successful professionals were joined for the evening with diplomats, royals, designers, models, beauty queens, singers, members of the press, movie moguls, and entrepreneurs.  We were also joined by the friends of Bill Walsh’s Power Team International and, of course, members of Black Tie International Magazine.


This special gathering was held at the Trump Tower International World Bar, near the United Nations. Elite Professional Networking Group (EPN) along with Black Tie International Magazine, Giorgio G Cognac (a product of world famous fashion designer Giorgio Gucci),
Emperors Vodka and AR-1 Supercar hosted the event.


We were happy to be joined by Ambassador Viinanen of Finland, who was accompanied by his lovely wife Ms. Irmeli Viinanen. Also in attendance was the very personable and friendly Thelma Dixon of the United Nations.  Making the rounds at the event was our good friend Roberto Rizzo, the CEO of the New York City International Film Festival (NYCIFF.)   We were fortunate to have His Royal Highness the Prince Oriteme in attendance.  With so many recent dynamic world developments, our guests were eager to engage the Prince in some spirited and interesting conversations.  


Our event was made all the more special by the presence of Miss New Jersey 2012 - Ms Ariane Datil, and Miss New York Rose - Tralee Annemarie Lynch.  Everyone had the opportunity to have their photo taken with these gracious, intelligent and very beautiful women. Our red carpet is always out for these stars! 


And let’s not forget that everyday, thousands and thousands of our service men and women make tremendous sacrifices to protect our freedoms.  We are fortunate to have so many highly skilled and unselfish individuals willing to stand in harms way so we can enjoy the richness of life in our country. As in the past, we invite veterans to our celebrations in order to say “thank you.”  Our veteran honoree for the evening was Army Sgt. Jose Sanchez, who was accompanied by his wife Carol.  We were also visited by veterans Viktoriya Mikhelzon and Jungwon Yun.  Special thanks to Tony Ntnelas of the Wounded Warrior Projects for helping to coordinating this portion of the evening. 


What’s a party without great music?  Singer and songwriter Chantele DiBrava entertained us with her beautiful sounds of pop, classic, soul and rhythms and blues songs.  Chantele has the looks of an angel and the voice of a diva – a beautiful combination that mesmerized the crowd throughout the evening! If you are looking for a singer for your next event just let us know!  We will gladly give you Chantele’s contact information. She is currently represented by Absolute Pitch..


One of the sponsors for the evening was Donna Scott of both Donna Scott Secret Med Spa and Donna Scott Celebrity Facialist.  Everyone wants to look their best – and Donna’s beauty treatment and products can magically transform your “everyday look” into that of a super-star.  Donna’s spa services are in demand – and not surprisingly, she is a regular to the stars at the Oscars as well as the models in New York City’s Fashion Week. Many of our guests were fortunate to received Donna’s special treatment that evening – and it showed with their glowing skin, and a renewed vitality.  Need some one to help you get rejuvenated and reenergized?  Let us know and we will put you in touch with this exceptional service.


Donna was accompanied by Dominic J. Ferrara, who has modeled in runway shows, music videos, and on television.  Need a super-professional to launce your newest campaign - Dom is available!


And, of course our regular sponsor, Mr. Nick Alessi of AR-1 Supercar was in attendance. The AR-1 Supercar is a limited production vehicle that blends art, automotive technology, and high-speed performance in one unique package. As a cutting edge designer, Nick is always swarmed by a growing legion of fans enthralled by his craftsmanship.


The AR-1 Supercar has been driving a “highway of red carpets” throughout the month of May.  The AR-1Supercar was at the Pantagis Renaissance for a fashion show and charity event hosted by designer Simone Rodriquez of Sisa Designs.  The fashion show was fantastic, and the AR-1 Supercar was a big hit.   Guests and fashion designers made sure to have their photo taken with the AR-1 - they just love this rolling work of art.


And on Tuesday May 8, the AR-1 traveled to Westport Connecticut for a charity event sponsored by Stand for the Troops.  This not-for-profit organization, led by Major General Baptiste, supports our returning war veterans.  Though there were strong winds and heavy rains, the event was packed by a top-tier cliental that generously opened their wallets and purses for this worthy charity.  The AR-1, protected by a tent enclosure, drew lots of oooohs and ahhhs, and enhanced the star power of the event!


And on May 9, Nick Alessi had the AR-1 Supercar at the Valley Brooke Country Club in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The famous Philadelphia Eagles football player Vince Papale hosted the charity event.  Yes, that’s the same Vince Papale who’s life was the subject of the recent blockbuster “Invincible."  As you remember, Mark Walhberg played the role of Vince in this inspirational film that deserves to be seen over and over again. The charity event was great - so many important guests, great food and drinks.  And while lots of people lined up for a picture with Vince, just as many people wanted a picture with the AR-1.



The following day, the AR-1 was at the Business Expo in Manhattan.  Most impressed with the car was Bill Walsh, the famous author, speaker, entrepreneur, and business expert.  Bill co-hosted the Business Expo and spoke to 4,800 people at the Skytop Ballroom of the Pennsylvania Hotel!  Here is an interesting note about the growing interest in the AR-1: When the car arrived in its trailer in midtown Manhattan, people trying to get glimpse Nick Alessi’s  “rolling thunder” immediately was surrounded. When the car was moved out of the trailer, everybody went crazy!  Those typically stoic New Yorkers were smiling -saying how they had never seen a car as beautiful as this one. Many commented that the AR-1 looks like a cross between a Lamborghini and the Batmobile.  Cell phones and cameras were flashing! Bill Walsh of Power Team International and his business associates were really impressed with the AR-1. Nick Alessi took the time to explain his design philosophy, and the materials and techniques used to build a world class “supercar.” Already, the AR-1 has been featured in music videos, television shows, movies,
 and fashion shows. 


And on May 17, the AR-1 Supercar was at the Boathouse by Central Park for the 14 European Chambers Summer Event.  The AR-1 Supercar was an instant hit! Attendees of the event and casual park goers constantly surrounded the car. The car proved to be so popular with the crowds that the police didn’t enforce the permit restrictions, allowing the car to stay in the Central Park way into the late hours of the evening!  (Yes, I will be writing a separate article about these several events with the AR-1 Supercar with all the pictures


Our birthday celebrant for May was celebrity dentist Dr. Robert Korwin, accompanied by his lovely wife, author, style and life coach Susan Korwin.  Another birthday honoree was Michael Giakummelos, producer of MGTVUSA. Our guests sang Happy Birthday while Robert and Michael were blowing out the candles on their special birthday cakes.  


Once again, thanks to Kenneth McClure, the general manager of the Trump Tower International World Bar. Mr. McClure & his staff did another outstanding job for us and we say “Well Done.”  Ken is also the vice-president of Hospitality Holdings, a company that operates eight different lounges and restaurants, including The Empire Room at the Empire State Building. The Empire Room is “the place” for afternoon cocktails and a wonderful site for your next special event.
