Our celebration of welcoming in FALL was another fabulous evening in spite of the scare: the announcement by the weather newscaster that it would be raining the whole day and through rush hour into the evening. My thoughts that morning of the event that it had not rained for several weeks, so why did it choose to rain on this day? But in spite of the gloomy looming news by the weatherman that it would be raining hard that whole day. The place was packed, full of old and new friends mingling where they shared their joy of welcoming in FALL. This is my favorite time of the year and I am sure many others also love fall as much as I do. Now I can wear my business suits (my best and dear outfits) without putting on a heavy coat, and it is just the perfect look. Amazingly it did not rain that day and night, so as usual, I believe that my prayers were answered.
Because we had a break for two months during the summer our guests were truly excited to come back again and visit with our old friends, and meet wonderful new people, and our celebrity guests. Everyone was having such a terrific time. So as usual, everyone stayed ‘till the wee hours of the night. Sadly, I had to leave my guests again, since it was after 11:00 pm, late and because my ride had arrived.
The venue was held again at The World Bar at Trump Tower International by the United Nations and produced by Gloria T. Cressler, CEO/Founder
of Elite Professional Networking Group and Editor of Black Tie International Magazine. Co-hosted by
Black Tie International Magazine, Power Team International, Giorgio G. Cognac (by famous designer Giorgio GUCCI), and Emperors Vodka, Wine WorldWide Inc., and Global Fine Wines & Food Connection.
Our Guest Speaker was RITA COSBY, a renowned Emmy winning TV & Radio host, veteran correspondent and best- selling author, who had anchored highly rated Prime Time shows on Fox News Channel and MSNBC. Currently she is a special correspondent for the top-rated CBS newsmagazine Inside Edition and hosts WABCs’ acclaimed radio program: The Rita Cosby Show. Rita’s been interviewed or profiled by hundreds of media outlets across America and overseas. She was selected by Cosmopolitan Magazine as a “Fun and Fearless Female,” and because of her “extraordinary journalism,” October 11th, 2010 where she was honored and it was officially named “Rita Cosby Day" for the State of New York. The highlight of the evening was when we presented Rita a beautiful Original Painting by Michael Indorao of the Plaza Hotel that was painted in the style of the Victorian Era, a very nostalgic piece. This painting came out so beautiful. Ms. Cosby was so ecstatic to receive such a fabulous painting. Everybody loves her due to her niceness and friendly demeanor. She spent time conversing and having pictures taken with our guests.  
Our entertainment was by Dan D' Agnes. We never had a comedian before as our entertainment, but we attempt to give opportunities for all types of entertainment venues. Dan D' Agnes is a working stiff from Long Island, New York, who broke into comedy accidently when his impersonations of his boss were caught on security cameras.  After being fired, Dan starting doing stand up and has performed at Gotham Comedy Club, Comic Strip Live, Stand Up New York and New York Comedy Club.   He also has written for stars, one is a web-series about an overconfident yet brainless Wall Street trader called "Bert the Broker" with over a million views. Well the guests very much enjoyed his comedy, and it was a good break.   
the Guests who won his original drawings were so very happy to received these great originals and pastels.
Michael’s art is collected by so many important collectors.
He is preparing for several exhibitions nationwide, and next year plans are for overseas. 
Artist Michael Indorato, a gifted artist and inventor and he is a self-taught painter with a real zeal for harnessing his inner emotional states in order to create incredible, deeply personal works of art. He became aware of his ability to create beautiful art at an early age and has been actively pursuing his life's vision of being a world famous artist. Michael’s body of work is enormous and is currently featured in private collections around the world. You will often find him showing at big New York City Art Venues
such as Art Expo NYC and the Contemporary Art Fairs, both as  a painter and a performing artist. Indorato has created a flying painting contraption which is quickly getting him attention in New York City and beyond. To see more of his works, go to or email

And the guests enjoyed having discussions and having pictures taken with them. And Orly Amor the President of Holistic Chamber of Commerce
The Welcome FALL event was attended by so many of our wonderful loyal friends, and new additions, which we appreciated greatly, having the ability to call them our new friends. The sharing included stories about their lives, life, and discussed business strategies and networked looking for entrepreneurial opportunities.  The winner of the 5 days 4 nights in the Cancun Resort is Steven Engelson Regional Director Sales Director WingsJETS. The winner before that is Architect Irena Skoda. So not forget to come on our next events you might be the next lucky winner.
Everyone is looking forward towards our next fabulous event and by joining us, and the center of attention will be the President of The Greater New York Chamber of Commerce: Mark Jaffe and their members. The Greater New York Chamber of Commerce has more than 20,000 members in the tri-state area. So it should be another interesting and fun event, again as always…Mr. Jaffe will be the guest speaker at our next event on Nov. 04, and since that will be an election day. Some can join him after the event at the governor’s victory party.
Paula Oleska will be singing in the opening of the show, of Artist Marco in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the whole emirates, Galina Saucedo, and others will be traveling with us. I am afraid that I will need to go home early on Nov. 04, to prepare for the flight to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and the whole Emirates the following day. We will also be joined by Rita Cosby, and my retired admiral friend that will be flying in from Greece, and other friends who are lining up and ready to go. If you want to join us just feel free to contact me by sending me an email.
