Several of my media and PR friends (and a few reality TV personalities) attended “The SCOOP” Goes Global Mixer Tuesday, December 16 at Prime One 16 in Harlem, NY. Organized and hosted by Carnegie PR, the event was a celebration of this column’s most recent accolades and accomplishments, including being picked up by JuicyMagOnline.com and The Good Life EA (East Africa), a digital platform via Clouds Media, one of the largest media platforms throughout East and Central Africa.
Despite the rainy weather, Prime One 16 was a packed house for the event. While DJ Ted Smooth spun some of my favorite hip-hop and R&B tunes, guests mixed and mingled and enjoyed jello shots from Koffi’s Jello Bar, cocktails by Birthday Cake Wines, and sweet treats conceived by Trendy Treats BK and Rose Fruit Bouquets. The fabulous ambiance was the talk of the night thanks to the floral arrangements and table decor provided by Primrose Couture Events, and guests were equally impressed by the slide show featuring the logos of the event’s sponsors that played on three of the venues big screen televisions throughout the night. The fun-filled celebration was capped off by my cutting the gorgeous – and delicious – cake that was provided by the creative minds at MDV Custom Cakes. It was truly a evening I will never forget!!
As the night came to a close, guests, including fashion publicist Alvin Lopez Woods, socialites the Von Boozier Twins, my JuicyMagOnline.com editor Jasmine Washington, Celfie Cosmetics CEONicole Harding, VH1’s Black Ink Crewstar Sky, and celebrity trainer Nicole Chaplin, were gifted with goodie bags featuring products from Paul Bunyun Beard Gang, Dr. Miracle’s,Ms. Jannie’s Baby, Clique by Roble, and Juicy Magazine. A very special thank you to the amazing staff at Prime One 16 and Mercedes Corona for the red carpet treatment that my guests and I received.
Now that 2014 has come to an end. and I reflect on all I’ve accomplished with “The SCOOP” in the last twelve months, I am optimistic about what 2015 will bring. I look forward to bringing you more of the hottest celebrity news and interviews, giveaways, and event recaps…and perhaps it’s time for “The SCOOP” to make its way onto your radios or television screens. Stay tuned…
