It is awards season again, so that means that I am pretty busy with my PR clients making sure that their brands are well represented. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in the Black Opulence Gifting Suite which is the official celebrity gifting suite for the BET Honors Awards. My client, filmmaker and author, Kanithea Powell of Qwest Films and Qwest Publishing was an official sponsor of the suite.
The event was held at the Whittemore House, which is a historic mansion that also serves as the home to The Woman;s National Democratic Club. Trina Braxton of the famous Braxton musical family and We’s “Braxton Family Values” was the host and celebrity mixologist for the event. The entire first level of the mansion was filled with sponsors and vendors that included Qwest Films, Jones Magazine, Remy Martin, Vita CoCo and PoshBooth to name a few. I could write an entire post on all of the companies that provided products and services to make this event such a success.
Take a look at some of the photos taken at this year’s event below.
Make It Memorable!
