(Hollywood, CA) January 3, 2011- The Red Carpet Events has the pleasure of planning the “Terrell Owens Speakeasy Soiree”, a night filled with mystique, celebrity guests and glamour reminiscent of the opulent Roaring Twenties. This prohibition inspired celebration will take place at The Blind Barber (339 East 10th Street, NY, NY) on Wednesday, January 19, 2011. All proceeds will be donated to benefit The Alzheimer's Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. NFL star receiver and Alzheimer’s Celebrity Ambassador, Terrell Owens expressed, "Alzheimer's is the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States and Alzheimer's has affected my own family, so I understand firsthand the impact of this disease. I am proud to support the Alzheimer's Association, as they educate people on the realities of Alzheimer's disease so we can inspire enough support to stop it.”
The authentic concept created by The Red Carpet Events will transport guests to the turn of the century as they enter an unassuming East Village barbershop and are magically whisked back into time. Walking past rows of illuminated candelabras, an elusive mixologist will be indulging guests with themed beverages complimenting the T.O. brand provided by Finlandia, Jack Daniels and Herradura Tequila. Custom hors d’ oeuvres created by Southern Hospitality will also leave guests begging for more bootlegging. In addition, to ensure every prohibition law is broken, the evening will be filled with endless musical surprises, sexy cigarette girls, a cigar aficionado donned in a fedora, pinstripes and limited edition bow ties designed by NFL player Dhani Jones. Christy Bareijsza, the Founder and CEO of The Red Carpet Events, is thrilled to have her team planning this production for the NFL legend, “We are extremely proud to be supporting Terrell Owens and the generous sponsors in this honorable quest to help bring awareness to Alzheimer’s though such a creative outlet. Terrell’s humanitarian efforts off the field exemplify a genuine strength and heartfelt compassion that often does not receive the proper credit and we are humbled to be chosen to be part of this memorable evening.” Tickets are extremely limited; please go to www.terrellowens.com for further details.
