The International Rescue Committee Freedom Award Dinner in NYC

The International Rescue Committee hosted its annual Freedom Award Dinner last night at the Waldorf Astoria in New York to support the organization’s lifesaving humanitarian aid work and honor long-time IRC supporters Cliff and Laurel Asness and Ken and Vickie French with the Humanitarian Leadership Award. In a very special moment, Sting joined IRC President and CEO David Miliband on stage to honor humanitarian aid workers across the world.  Helping others is what makes the world go round and this initiative really shines a light on what’s important in life. Mikhail Baryshnikov and IRC Voices Piper Perabo, Nykhor Paul and Danielle de Niese also attended. #youvebeenVALidated to be inspired!  I invite you to share ways you like to give back.

Supernova-Presented by Jimmy Lloyd and Heidi Merrill

Musical minds and entrepreneurial go getters gathered in NYC this past week to create a forum for bands to showcase their talent and support each other’s hard work and perseverance.  I had the pleasure of MCing and introducing the talent live.  Slake NYC was the perfect venue for the festivities presented by The Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase and the fabulous Heidi Merrill.  All of  the incredible performances will air on The Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase broadcasting on Amazon and Comcast.  Marta Pacek, Heidi Merril, The BlackFires, The VeeVees and Lindsay Katt all deserve major props for their outstanding performances.  This is the first Supernova of many to come so keep your eyes open and be a part of the next event.

Victors Cafe with Broadway Beauties!

I have to say I am so lucky to have such incredibly talented and kind friends!  Last night I caught up with my girls including PR Powerhouse Jo Mignano, Tony Nominated  Actress Orfeh, 3 time Grammy Nominee Taylor Dayne and Beauty/Fashion Expert Caitlin Kiernan.  What a teriffic way to spend a Tuesday evening.  All of this spectacular energy filled Victor’s Cafe in Midtown West where we dined on delicious Cuban cuisine and danced to live music. We did however allow some men to make the cut at our girls night outing including Cousin Tom!, David Caplan of Gossipdavid and a cameo was even made  by Broadway’s very own “Rocky,” Andy Karl. Orfeh is his better half;)
