I want to thank all who blessed Powerhouse Media Group (PMG) with your presence at our 2nd Annual PINK Party last night. We got pinked out for breast cancer by showing up and being engaged in educating and empowering our community about the disease that affects mothers, daughters, fathers, brothers, neighbors, coworkers, club members... EVERYONE (in some form or fashion).
The presentations and performances by violinist Clara Huff, Ryan "Jenks" Jenkins, Allen Ellis & Out the Box Kidz, and Dianne Powell of Daughter Connection of Hampton Roads, Inc. (Breast Health Awareness)were passionate. The mistress of ceremonies Rev. Donita Edwards and the live art by Brittney Heckstall of B Inspired by Brittney Heckstall were amazing. The vendors including Crys Heckstall-Rice of P.I.N.K. (Proudly Investing 'N Kids), Traci Lynn rep Celeste Jones, Divine Designs by Rebekah Harris and Your Avon with Feona Sharhran Huff had a lot to offer. The food by Ang's Sushi and Stellar Enterprises & Associates as well as the desserts by Carolina Cupcakery and Farm Fresh were delicious. The raffles sponsored by SO Hope (Darlene Boyd), Poetic Souls Inc., Beyond Boobs (Mary Beth Gibson), The Beach College and Divine Designs were all the rave. The calendar giveaways and newspapers well received and greatly appreciated so thank you Beyond Boobs and Tidewater Woman.
It was an absolute honor to have Alexis Jay of Hot 91 FM to stop by and support our cause. A special THANK YOU goes out to the College of Beauty & Barber Culture for gifting us with the space to host the event and Raymond Shine of Shotstream Media for recording the pink party (FYI: It will be available for purchase on DVD).
Thank you to my promotions director Rebekah Harris and staff members Candis Sauls and Talishia A. Wright for giving the event a powerhouse touch.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) is very important - so is daily care for our health. As we go about today, tomorrow and so on, let's keep all breast cancer survivors, those who have just been diagnosed with breast cancer and the loved ones of those who finished their journey and are now resting, in prayer. Let us honor and respect their respective walks by investing in our health through exercising, entertaining a balanced diet, making and keeping regular doctor appointments, examining our breasts and getting mammograms, and educating ourselves (and others) about health matters.
Let me know what events you'd like to see PMG do in the future as it's our desire to always help you step into your power.
Happily pinked out,
Feona Sharhran Huff
