The Honorees

Held at the Tracy Reese Boutique, A Toast to PR Power Player awards was a blend of  PR, fashion, beauty, and networking. The nights honorees included Jana Fleishman (Media and Talent Relations, RocNation), Jennifer Yu (Director of Communications, Moet Hennessey), Victoria Martinez (SVP, DKC PR), Margeaux Rawson (SVP of Media Relations, Universal Motown Records), Wendy Washington (EVP of Media Relations, Jive Label Group), Marcy Polanco (Sr. Director of Corporate Communications, BET Networks), Michelle Huff (Owner, Huff PR & Events) and Simone Smalls (President/CEO, Simone Smalls PR)


Our host of the evening was Shayna D, creator of  The Diva Lounge. She handed out the awards to these deserving women. Most with 10 years plus as PR professionals. { I can’t wait till I can say that} 

“In an industry where pseudo professionals and imposters run rampant its good to be surrounded such talented women” – Marcy Polanco

The PR Power Player awards  not only offered the opportunity to mix and mingle with these PR Professional and others in the industry. But attendees also received a 20% discount from Tracy Reese, event sponsor Miss Jessie was also on hand with samples. THe creators of Miss Jessie were also in attendance. The event even offered signature drinks which was a great touch provided by Remy Martin.

PR Inspired Drinks

 I had such a fun time at this event. Even though the venue got a little warm due to the large crowd. I was happy to see some familiar faces that night as well. particularly Kim Riley the creator of FSL Cosmetics who gave samples to the VIP bags.  That night I was reminded no matter what people say there are women out there who are supporting one and other. There is enough work for everyone.

Happy Flying,
