A New Year Celebration to Remember
A Resolution to Live by all Year Long!
 
 Article By: Gloria Consolacion T. Cressler
 Editor: Black Tie International Magazine
                              Photographs by: William Michael  of William Michael Photography LLC 
                           TV Coverage by: Frank Omar of Frankly Speaking New York
 (Mondays 8 pm Channel 34)
 
Our kick off for the New Year was held on Tuesday January 14.  Everyone in attendance was in high spirits and remembered the most important resolution for any New Year:  Remain close to your old friends, and be eager to make new ones! 
 
And if you think of it, friends are the family we grow and grow throughout our lifetime.  Well, our networking family came out to the World Bar at Trump Tower to enjoy a remarkable and fun evening.  There was plenty of energy and vitality crowd
– a sign that there is a great 2014 in store for us!
 
Like so many of our other events, time just flew by as people shared stories, discussed business strategies, and networked new entrepreneurial opportunities.  It’s no wonder that everyone was already making plans for our next event on Tuesday, February 11th.  That’s the date of our Valentine’s Day Celebration.  As you know, this is always a big, big event -we all need to take a break from the daily work grind – and this event is filled with love.   After all, don’t forget that New Year’s resolution: Remain close to your old friends, and be eager to make new ones!  Besides, my birthday is on Valentine’s Day, and I’ll be celebrating with our other February birthday guests on the 11th.  Don’t miss it.
 
The January celebration was produced by Gloria T. Cressler, CEO and founder of Elite Professional Networking Group.  Our hosts for the evening were  Elite Professional Networking Group, Black Tie International Magazine, Power Team International, Giorgio G Cognac (by fashion designer Giorgio Gucci), Emperors Brand and the AR-1Supercar.
 
We celebrated the January birthday of Rita Cosby Host of CBS TV and Radio.  She was accompanied by her long time partner Tomaczek Bednarek, Juan Plaza of My Life Style Magazine, Shanna MCM Wallace of YFLFand and William Michael of William Michael Photography LLC. When the birthday cake was brought out, all the guests sang a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday.  Leading the chorus were Gloria T. Cressler, Gerard McKeon publisher of Black Tie International Magazine,  Karen Hoyos Latin celebrity, life coach and author, Bill Lanndis,  actor and movie director, and our VIP guests Mr. Julio B. Pujols,  Counselor of Permanent Mission of the Dominican Republic to the United Nations.
 It was really a fun night for the birthday celebrant.
  
Our surprise entertainment for the evening was provided by opera singers Cristina Fontinelli and Paula Oleska.  They were simply spectacular! 
 We are looking forward for next performances.
