Men Against Breast Cancer’s 2nd Annual NewzDudes Men in the Media Event
Last night the Social DC PR team attended Men Against Breast Cancer’s NewzDudes event at Redline DC. We arrived a little early, around 6:20pm and got a few photos on the red carpet. Then, we went inside where we were greeted by the lovely hostesses. They gave us each a raffle ticket, a drink ticket, and VIP wristbands.
When we got upstairs to the event the cake had just arrived so we immediately walked over to it and checked it out. You can see by the photo that it was a gorgeous cake created by Pro Cakes. At the end of the night they served the cake to everyone. It was red velvet- one of our favorites! Pro Cakes will be donating a cake for our One Year Anniversary Party at ATOWN on August 17th as well so all of our guests will get to enjoy some of their delicious cakes as well!
Redline was already getting pretty packed by 7:00pm with attendees ranging from the “Newzdudes,” the hosts of the event which included one of our favorites Emerald Robinson, and Men Against Breast Cancer supporters. There were also a variety of photographers, sponsors, and bloggers attending the event as well.
The passed appetizers were delicious. They included shrimp and lobster bites, bruschetta, hummus and crackers, and mini sliders. Bombay Sapphire was the sponsored liquor for the event and they had a booth set up where they made drinks for everyone. Our Account Manager, Cassie Ricalde, was even given a lesson on how to make the drinks! There was also a gelato booth that had a variety of flavors: white chocolate raspberry, chocolate, pistachio, and strawberry. Our favorite was the white chocolate raspberry!
There was a raffle where guests could purchase tickets to a win a variety of different items. Jamie ended up winning the DC United signed soccer ball, you can see it in the picture below. We’ll be raffling the soccer ball off at our One Year Anniversary party.
Special thank you to Brian Silver for inviting the Social DC PR team to the event- We’re looking forward to the next one!
