Our Mid-Summer night celebration on July 15th, 2014 was our last event for the summer. Another fabulous night in spite of the stormy weather (no rain for several weeks, but it then decided to pour that day). The usual guests arrived, our regular members and friends, but we also saw new faces. Several of our guests brought a lot of new friends which enhanced the party where the room bustled about with amazing conversations and laughter. Everyone was having a terrific time reuniting with old friends and meeting new ones.
Many of our guests stayed so very late, 11:00 pm or later… this has been a usual occurrence because of having so much fun meeting and greeting, and having special and intimate discussions with our VIP guest celebrity.
This event was held again at The World Bar at Trump Tower International by the United Nations and produced by Gloria T. Cressler, the 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 World Wide Inc., and Global Fine Wines & Food Connection.
In spite of the fact that our long-time friend Award Winning Director, Producer and Writer Dean Love of The FBI File, Life in Mars, Queen Elizabeth 1 (The Virgin Queen),and many others was filming that night. He stopped his filming in order to join us. Everyone was happy to see him again because he normally travels all over the world filming movies.
We were also joined by Comtessa Suzanne de Paris of France and New York City, and of course our events were attended by so many other wonderful loyal friends and new friends, whom we all appreciate very much. Everyone was sharing stories about life, discussed unique business strategies, and networked with new and regular guests for entrepreneurial opportunities.
We all are looking forward towards our future fabulous event where we will be joined by the President of The Greater New York Chamber of Commerce Mark Jaffe and their members, and Rita Cosby the host of CBS TV and Radio and also a best-selling Author. So it should be another interesting and fun event again, which is expected as always…
That evening we gave away a lot of door prizes such as from the Artist Michael Indorato, Bobby Sukhdeo of Pure Audio Visual, and Jon Landers of Creative Group. The biggest door prize was the 5 nights 4 days stay at the CANCUN RESORTS worth $ 877.00 and the lucky winner was Lady Architect Irena Skoda of Skoda Design & Architecture, PLLC. The other winners were also happy with what they won. We had our birthday celebrant that night Rashidah Billups where everyone sang her happy birthday headed by our Singer Paula Oleska when we gave her the birthday cake. She was extremely happy. Our Veteran for the month is Sgt. Wally Salley
who served in Iraq. We thank him for his service to our country.
Our Entertainment was led by Paula Oleska, a mezzo soprano who studied singing in Poland at an early age. After coming to New York, she performed with many Opera Companies of the like of Bel Canto, Amato,
Brooklyn Lyric, and many others. Paula also sang many Solo Recitals with Art Songs from many cultures.
She is recognized for her outstanding interpretation of Broadway standards. That night she sang a few opera songs and several from the Phantom of the Opera. Everyone enjoyed her songs immensely every time she entertained us. Of note Paula is our in-house singer and also the President of BRAIN UPGRADE.
