P.s.  I had no idea that Bernie Williams played anything other than baseball, either.  Wow!  He makes some beautiful music.  A little Carlos Santana meets Hotel Cailfornia unplugged on the latin tip kinda vibe.  Cool stuff.  🙂


Great People for a Great Cause: $165,000 Raised for MS!

Special thanks to Lisa Futterman from the Holy Name Medical Center Foundation for sending over some great photos.  It was an honor and privilege to help her team raise over $165,000 for people with MS at their annual Fashion extravaganza.  

Every year, part of my contribution to the cause is warming up the audience and their pocketbooks.

This year, the producers added a little flair to the fling by setting up a red carpet to welcome all the guests.    My co-emcees for the afternoon and I posed for a few paparazzi shots.  🙂  (Chris Cimino from News 4 New York, Lisa Futterman from the MS Center and Teri Capparelli from Lord and Taylor with Marcello Pedalino from MMP Entertainment.)

It’s always fun catching up with one of my personal style inspirations, Chris Cimino.  He’s a gentleman who always dresses for the occasion and is ready to celebrate with a smile. 

See you next year!

Pomptonian Food Service: A Positive Corporate Culture

Mark Vidovich, President of Pomptonian Food Service

MMP has had the pleasure of serving the Pomptonian Food Service team for almost 20 years.   Whether it’s their annual company picnic, networking gala or manager’s meeting, it’s always a blast to see how they mix productive business practices with fun and entertaining team building.

Pomptonian  is responsible for serving 180,000 healthy and tasty school lunches daily.  Yeah… that’s a lot of lunches!

If the logistics of running an operation on that scale weren’t daunting enough, the rules and regulations that have to be adhered to would make most businesses call it quits by the end of September.

Pomptonian keeps their team up to date and well-versed in all the latest laws and procedural requirements.  Sound a little boring?  Some of it is!  🙂   That’s why they hire MMP to re-energize the troops througout the 1/2 day gathering.

This little clip is an example of how Mark Vidovich, Pomptonian’s President, likes to see his “meetings” end.   Mark knows the importance of having a positive corporate culture:  one that instills inspiration and happiness in the hearts of its team members.

Jani’s SCE Premier: Make It Happen

"Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves. Those who work hard and play hard." ~ Colin Powell (At the new SCE Event Group Headquarters: Mike Walter, Neen James, Jason Jani & Marcello Pedalino)

Jason Jani and the SCE Event Group revealed their firm’s new corporate headquarters to a select group of entertainment industry A-listers and social media glitterati.  (and being the awesome person that Jason is, he invited his mom and dad to be a part of the festivities too.)

View the full event recap from the SCE Blog here.

As a friend, I couldn’t be happier for Jason.  He has a saying that we always refer to… “Make It Happen.

JJ has been working on the new diggs while simultaneously dazzling  his clients and the Mobile Entertainment and Event Production industry for a few years now.   His hard work and perseverance has paid off handsomely.  Indeed, he made it happen.  No shortcuts.

As a colleague and co-collaborator in his Signature Events Division, I’m honored to be a part of the synergy that he consistently produces.

Kudos and Congrats Mr. Jani.  Continued success!,
