*The Faux Socialite© frantically calls ALL contacts in the Blackberry. Swears. Sighs. Calls one of Ibiza’s owners to make nice. Grovels. Calls Feeding America to work the volunteer angle. Crys.*

Feeding America
The Recording Industry Association of America is an INVITATION ONLY inaugural charity ball at Ibiza Nightclub in Washington DC to benefit Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. Need more of an incentive to wrangle an invite?

Let’s just say…RIHANNA…will be performing with other entertainers yet to be announced!

Of course, The Faux Socialite’s© tried-and-true sponsorship tactic can be launched by contacting PJ McCann for Feeding America at (202) 669-2687 or pjmccann@comcast.net. But hold onto your Louis Vuitton wallets cause it ain’t gonna come cheap!

Miami…one of The Faux Socialite’s© favorite haunts…

Caliente weather…cosmopolitan energy…seductive…unabashed cleavage flaunting…The GOOD Life.

Smh.com.au

The 11th annual Miami Fashion Week, held at SOHO Studios in Miami’s Wynwood Art District; will feature fashion shows, an International Buyers Salon and sponsor lounges, housed in a “Fashion City”, to accomodate the fashion elite. (Be sure to score a seat at the Miami Moda Awards, a celebrity fashion and entertainment awards show featuring special guest designers and international recording artists!)

2009 Motor Trend International Auto Show: Maserati of Baltimore Mid-Atlantic

20 12 2008

12-15 February 2009

Maserati

Elegance. Precision. Speed. Sex.

Maserati of Baltimore Mid-Atlantic

Maserati of Baltimore

Warmth. Dedication. Premium. Charity. Socialite.

The premier Mid-Atlantic Maserati dealership- home to MD/DC/VA exotic auto enthusiasts M.O.B Exotics– supports a large variety of social and charity events…Fashion Fights Poverty, Christian Siriano of Project Runway, Children’s Guild, Consulate of Italy…need I say more?!?

How fitting that Maserati of Baltimore will be featured at the Motor Trend International Auto Show, and the duPont Registry, held at the Baltimore Convention Center.

The Motor Trend International Auto Show showcases hundreds of new automobile and concept cars to the public in an exciting, polished format. Bottom line? This show separates cars from The Whips

So, DO visit Jack and Kae Davis, to say “Buono Giorno!” and ogle your next Maserati…or Ferrari…or Lamborghini.

DO decide which worthy charity event, sponsored by Maserati of Baltimore, that you, Faux Socialite, will support!





Aloha Inaugural Ball

18 12 2008

18 January 2009

Ahhh….

Black sands, warm tradewinds, tension gone on a wave of aloha spirit

KathyBoast.com

Hawaii is one of The Faux Socialite’s© fav places…it’s the multi-cultural, mellow paradise of it all!

Quite fitting that the home state inaugural ball of Handsome-Elect Barack Obama is THE most coveted ticket in the Nation’s Capital! 

Blaine Fergerstrom

The Aloha Inaugural Ball, sponsored by Hawaii for Obama and held at the  Marriott Wardman Park,  is open to everyone, but getting a ticket?

Wellll….not so simple.

You see Faux Socialites, this event had been SOLD OUT for a few weeks…particularly considering the rumor that Good Looking-Elect could pop in for a visit…

The Faux Socialite© Note: Remember that “No is not an option!” While tickets can not be extorted or stolen…cough, cough…an enterprising Faux Socialite knows that obtaining sponsorship (with 10 friends) is often event entrée gold.
