Lisa Raye interview
The second annual Fairways and Highways Celebrity Golf and Biker Weekend in awareness of domestic violence for teens and young women (as well as boys) took place this past weekend in Atlanta. American Family Insurance saw the important events took off with such recent high profile cases like that of pop music’s Chris Brown & Rihanna. The weekend events included a kick off dinner at Aqua Knox, a red carpet event party at the W Hotel Buckhead as well as a Sunday biker parade down 285 in an act against such violent crimes.
Spokesperson, Lisa Raye helped to lead the event joined by celebs such as, Chef G.Garvin, Jacque Reid, Terance Mathis & Kenny Lofton.
As everyone knows these events also took place during the same time the annual BET Awards that go down in LA every summer so there was a bit of competition in attendees. It would have been an EVEN better attendance otherwise I’m sure. Still the positive message was delivered & a good time was had in the interim by guests.
Above view my talk with the strong yet glamorous Lisa Raye. The mother of a daughter herself, she shares with me the importance of young women finding their own confidence as well the most important factor she believes needs to be in every marriage. Nope, she’s not bitter, don’t get it twisted, she’s single & loving it. She also says, "No she has never been a victim of domestic violence". That didn't stop her from lending her name in support of this needed event. The thing i admire most about Lisa Raye is her great energy! She reminds me much of the successful, strong, sexy and sassy character she played on, "All of Us".
Also look for an upcoming reality show (Of course..this is the time to do it and I KNEW IT!!) in the workings for Lisa Raye. She confirmed that taping will start in two weeks to possibly air on TV One. The new show will highlight her life as she journeys from being a first lady and married to Turks & Caicos former Prime Minister, Michael Misick. Yet in many people’s eyes her powerful presence will always have her as a first lady. After a media heavy rocky '08 it looks like 2009 is proving to be joyful for the star. Ow owwww!
Thanks to Lisa Raye, her assistant Stacy Montgomery and double thank you to The Garner Circle PR event credentials. They work hard, always a great job!
