Thanks to all those that attended and sponsored the First Annual Bloggers Soiree Monday, September 27 at Libation NY in the Lower East Side. The rain prevented many registered attendees from coming but we still had a fantastic event.
Attendees helped raise over $500 for Restore NYC, got to meet the blogging community, demo the eyelash extension procedure provided by JJ Eyelashes , skincare demos provided by Nu Skin, entered a chance to win lovely pearl earrings provided by Raymond Hakimi of Jewels of Ocean, and experienced a live musical performance by local singer-songwriter Alexis Foxe.
This event could not be possible without the help of our sponsors: Novo Ink, JJ Eyelashes, Nu Skin, LYVA Music, Red Rover PR, Keep It Real Game, author of “Shaken and Stirred” Crystal Black Davis, FourBlend, New York American Marketing Association, India Social, the Bloggers School, blogcatalog, SocialGo, Girls in Tech and official ticket partner EventBrite. Too many links to list but follow my Twitter list of all sponsors and visit their twitter pages and websites for more information.
Wonderful presentations from Carolina Frederica of the Bloggers School and Josh Bernoff and Ted Schadler , co-authors of “Empowered” and Forrester Research executives. As well, the Red Rover Unit was in full effect blogging, tweeting, videotaping and taking pictures. Overall the event was beyond amazing and a great first start.
DesireeFrieson.com, RedRoverStyle.com and HerJourneyMag.com will be hosting more events in the future and I hope many will join us. We have created a community via SocialGo.com and will send the invite in coming days to join us.
Red Rover Unit pictures can be viewed below.
Video will be uploaded soon.
Special thanks to our event photographer Kristle Haynes of That Bronx Guhrl. More pictures below.
Together attendees and sponsors made a difference and a step in ending human trafficking and providing survivors with a safe house. The Soiree proved that bloggers can use social media for social good. And we will continue to do so…
