Everyone Should Have a Spring Fling !

      It’s Spring! 
And what better way to celebrate then to have
a little fling –
 Elite Professional Networking style!
 
Yes, we partied!  The 2012 Red Carpet Networking’s Spring Celebration was another wonderful event! Overlooking the East River and the United Nation, the Trump Tower World Bar was our special venue. Hosted by Elite Professional Networking Group, along with Black Tie International Magazine, Giorgio G Cognac (by famous designer Giorgio Gucci), Emperors Vodka and AR-1Supercar, an amazing number of guests were in attendance. In fact, the place was so packed we had to send some of our partygoers upstairs to the mezzanine!  A special shout out and welcome to the group from the United Nations, headed by Eva Jansen of the Staff Development Office of DM/OHRM. 
 
This event had an A-List of successful professionals from all walks of life: our Elite Professionals, together with diplomats, royals, designers, models, singers, the press, movie moguls, entrepreneurs, and of course, the friends of Black Tie International Magazine.
 
We were very lucky again to have the presence of award winning producer, director and writer Dean Love (who produced Life in Mars, Queen Elizabeth I - The Virgin Queen and many others). Just back from filming in China and Singapore, Dean found time in his busy schedule to join us for the evening.  Always personable, accommodating and friendly - everybody was happy to see Dean.  Having just finished editing two movies, he will continue to film the New York themed television show titled "THERE."  The title is reflects the popular musical score everyone knows
 "If you can make it here…"
 
Our honored veteran was Army Corporal Nicholas Calabris, who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. His graceful and lovely wife Jamie Calabris accompanied him and both were thrilled to be our special guests. Kudos to Tony NTellas, manager and alumni of the Wounded Warrior Project. Tony is doing an outstanding job seeing that our service men and women receive the recognition they deserve for their unselfish service to our nation.  Our special Award of Appreciation to Serviceman Calabris was presented by Mark Jaffe, President of the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce, Latin celebrity Karen Hoyos, President of Karen Hoyos International, Bill Lanndis, actor and movie director of T2 Entertainment, and Neal Johnson the brother of the Reverend David Johnson.  Let’s help our returning veterans by hiring them whenever possible.  Remember - they and their families have made great sacrifices for our country and they deserve our careful consideration for both jobs and advancement.  If you want to get in touch with any of our veteran honorees, please feel free to get  hold of us and we will be glad to give you
 their contact information.   
 
The talented singer and songwriter Harold Allen, just back from another successful tour, provided the evening’s entertainment.  He played a series of delightful songs that kept everyone smiling.  Harold is a wonderful artist that you simply want to be around. When he is not wowing the crowds with his original tunes, Harold teaches the finer points of the guitar. So if any of you are interested in lessons and want to hire him, let us know so we can give you
 his contact information.
 
We celebrated four April birthday’s at our “Spring Fling” - Jim Swiger, Managing Director "Enviroglobal Solutions,” Dean Love, Reverend David Johnson, former Congressional candidate, and singer Harold Allen. (Harold’s birthday is on May 5, but since we won't have our next event till May 15 so we included him in the festivities.)  And of course, each of our “birthday babies” got to blow out the candles on the cake while the crowd sang a rollicking version of Happy Birthday.  If your birthday is coming up, let us know.  We’d be happy to help celebrate your special day!  
 
Thanks go to our monthly sponsors! One of our “regulars” is Nick Alessi, the founder of the AR-1 Supercar.  Nick’s manufacturing company brings art and design together to make the world’s most unique car.  This beautiful supercar is equally comfortable on the racetrack or the country road. And the car’s careful craftsmanship combines with today’s cutting edge automobile technology to make it a "MUST HAVE" for any serious
 car enthusiast.
 
Another regular monthly sponsor was CruiseOne, headed by Sophia Facey and accompanied by her husband Andre Facey.  They enjoyed talking to our guests about CruiseOne Travel - a full service customized travel agency with the ability to plan every type of event – from private yacht charters for large groups to small, romantic couple vacations on board a fabulous vessel. You may desire your own private island vacation or simply want to share one. CruiseOne also arranges and hosts corporate events at sea, and they specialize in “destination” cruises.  Make sure to get in touch with Sophia for your next trip or vacation. CruiseOne is the travel agency that we use in our group for our travels, for Elite Professional Networking Group. 
 
We are thrilled to announce that Verizon Wireless, the nations largest 4G provider, serving over ninety-three million retail customers, joined us in our “Spring Fling.”  Three dynamic individuals represented this company that employ eighty thousand professionals - Peter McCarron, Assistant Manager for the Bryant Park Verizon location, Cliff Williams, the Retail Store Consultant for Bryant Park, and Robert Melillo, the District Data Consultant for New York City Verizon Wireless.
 
Maura Kallaway, director for "STAND FOR THE TROOPS " was also at our event.  She was promoting a charity event to be held on May 8 called "You Are Not Alone." The focus of this event is to support our active and returning service men and women with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  The charity event will be headed by honorary chairs:  Major General John Batiste, US Army Ret., Dr. Henry Grayson, PH.D and SFTT Chair Eilhys England Hackworth, and special host Storm N. Norman
of WEBE 108FM. 
 
There will be a cocktail reception, a silent and live auction, and the showing of the AR-1 Supercar - a half million dollar limited production luxury race car only 50 worldwide.  Make sure not to miss this event to support our troops.  And this will be a once-in-lifetime opportunity to see the AR-1 Supercar in Connecticut.

Once again, thanks to Mr. Kenneth McClure, the general manager of the Trump Tower World Bar, and vice president of Hospitality Holdings. Mr. McClure responsibilities include supervising eight lounges and restaurants including Madison and Vine, and Bookmarks Lounge on Madison Avenue and 41st. Him and his staff did a super job at the “Spring Fling”  - serving us great food and special cocktails – never missing a beat even with our unexpected overflow crowd!
