Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan Help Launch Behind The Brand Brunch Series
Singer/Actress Demetria McKinney and Actress/Reality TV Personality Claudia Jordan help launch Behind the Brand Brunch Series for Ovarian Cancer Awareness.
On Saturday July 30th, 2016, The Luxe PR Group, in partnership with PYNK Magazine, hosted their executive Behind the Brand Brunch Series in Dallas, Texas—benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Actress/Singer Demetria McKinney (RHOA Season 7, House of Payne) and TV Personality Claudia Jordan were there to lend their support and knowledge of building a brand. The event was held at the unique Lofty Spaces on Montgomery Street.
This event was coordinated by Anje Collins, founder of The Luxe PR Group and a two-time ovarian cancer survivor. During the brunch introduction, Anje candidly shared her passion for bringing awareness and educating individuals about the disease. The event raised more than $2,000. The Brunch Series included a solid panel of female African American entrepreneurs who provided insight on business branding, and gave their honest personal stories on leveraging and navigating the business world as entrepreneurs.
An open dialogue was encouraged amongst panelists and attendees while celebrating the spirit of female entrepreneurship. Guests in attendance received complimentary gift bags by Curls and Cynthia Bailey Eyewear. The event also included a shopping experience from African American female entrepreneurs.
The panelists included Claudia Jordan (The Claudia Jordan Collection), Demetria McKinney (DMK Collection), Ronnie Brown (Founder of High Heels High Goals), Marsha Dellinger (CEO of Curls), Tiffany Williams (CEO of Eye Candy Creations/Cynthia Bailey Eyewear), Arnita Johnson-Hall (CEO of Luxurious Credit), Raeyvn Jones (Founder of Fire Your Boss Academy), Nicole Harding (CEO of Celfie Cosmetics), Mecca Moore (PYNK Magazine), Davina Douthhard (Mass Appeal Magazine), and Tiffany Walker (CEO/Designer of Pink Lucy).
The event was sponsored by Luxurious Credit Eye Candy Creations, Celfie Cosmetics, DMK Collection, The Claudia Jordan Collection, High Heels High Goals, Get Glamology and My Luxury Hair. The event was produced by Sabeina Harris of Sabeina Harris Events. On October 22, 2016, the Behind the Brand Brunch Series will be heading to Washington, DC.
