Holy cow is life good. And I have no one to thank but YOU, Cincy Chic reader!
On Saturday, I, on behalf of Cincy Chic, was invited to be a HopAround Ambassador at The Havana Martini Club downtown. We had a few tables with Cincy Chic writers, editors and clients. (You’ll be seeing event photos here shortly)
Tonight, Pete and I were invited to probably the coolest tailgating party ever. Sure, we’ll be gearing up to cheer the Bengals on at the game. Sure, we’ll be eating food from the grill. But not just any grill. Jean Robert’s grill. That’s right, Jean Robert of gourmet yumminess Maisonette fame, will be personally making our dinner this evening. Swanky, swanky, huh? 🙂 Well, don’t worry, I’ll be drinking a cold one and yelling “WHO DEY” at the top of my lungs like everyone else at the game shortly thereafter! 🙂
Then tomorrow is going to be a big one. I will be an a BNI networking meeting in the morning, then the PRSA public relations annual “meet the press” luncheon, then I’ll be the emcee at a Go Red event at Shaker Run Golf Course that evening.
First of all, I’m honored that PRSA asked Cincy Chic to be a part of the “meet the press” luncheon in our first year. That’s unheard of, but just goes to show what a quality publication we’re distributing, the positive response we’re receiving and the power of online media. We’ve made great strides in our first nine months, and October is going to be our biggest month ever with Bras with Flair on the Square, in which I highly encourage you participate. Havana Martini and Panera are now collecting bras, so get them in now! In addition, we just found out that Jewish Hospital will have their mobile mammography van on Fountain Square on Oct. 23. Women can schedule their mammograms for the 23rd (or for another day at another location) by calling 686-3300.
Second of all, I’m absolutely humbled to be emcee of the Go Red event. I’m used to watching Pete emcee at events, but never have I been on that stage proudly wearing the emcee badge of honor. And this event hits home to me. My uncle, co-founder of Air Care here in Cincinnati, was very active with the American Heart Association (who is behind Go Red), and he ironically died in 2004 of a heart attack in the arms of Air Care personnel. I know he’ll be looking down at me proudly at tomorrow’s event, and I only hope to live up to the name he made for himself with this organization.
On a lighter note… you will also notice a new slew of advertisers on the site, so definitely check them out (they’re what make Cincy Chic possible!):
Speaking of eWomen Network, that’s what this week’s issue is all about – Networking. Without eWomen, Cincy Chic wouldn’t be nearly as advanced as it is today. If you’re looking to get well connected, eWomen is the way to go, so I highly recommend it. Enjoy this week’s issue and I hope you put all those networking tips to good use so we can meet one day in person! 🙂
Have a great WHO DEY day!!
