On September 17, Hilton Worldwide joined Black Enterprise to celebrate black men in marketing and advertising at the Rare Bar and Grill in New York City. While surrounded by 360-degree views of the New York City skyline, guests sipped signature BE Modern Man cocktails, listened to the sounds of DJ Spazo, and mingled with everyone, including Black Enterprise President & CEO Earl “Butch” Graves Jr., Hip-Hop producer Chris Classic, event host and “Mr. Moviefone” Kevin D. Thompson, and many more.
The event opened with remarks from Graves who thanked Hilton Worldwide for their partnership. He also welcomed all the influencers and game changers in the worlds of advertising and marketing who were in attendance, and other invited guests. Then the music began and the next couple of hours were filled with tasty hors d’oeuvres, camaraderie, and networking. And to top off the evening, three male event attendees walked away with a free two-night stay at any Hilton hotel in the country!
