Pink Game Changer Carlos King & April Love

It was all about the color pink on DecemBEr 20th as PR Maven & Brand Strategist April Love hosted her 6th Annual Pink in DecemBEr signature event at the Cynthia Bailey Agency. Industry elite, agency friends,and breast cancer survivors came together to celebrate life, strength and survival of those impacted by the disease. The high energy evening was accented with moments of inspiration as survivors such as Dr.Chyna Bethley and Pink Topps Founder Raque’l Smith provided their testimonies of triumph as well as addressed topics such as the importance of early detection and myths associated with breast cancer. A large portion of the Pink in DecemBEr proceeds were dedicated towards blessing two in-treatment breast cancer survivors, both of whom were in attendance. Master Stylist Pennae of Salon Penna’e and Manicurist Felicia Otero also sponsored make-up and spa manicure sessions for them prior to the event.

On Christmas Eve of 2009, April Love was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, changing her life drastically. Today, she is blessed to be a 6-year survivor and uses her testimony to bring awareness and show strength over the life threatening disease. The passion she exudes for women empowerment, breast cancer awareness, and entrepreneurship has led her to create Pink In DecemBEr as a way to celebrate the journey and pay homage to those who have fought and are still fighting. “You guys are a part of the vision that I had many years ago”, says Love. “I have taken the diagnosis and have BEcome the change that I want to see. That’s what this event is about.”

The PINK Awards, which were hosted by Radio Veteran & Breast Cancer Survivor Ebony Steele and Lifestyle Specialist Satchel Jester, were incorporated as a way to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of those who have exemplified leadership, service, and innovation in both their professional and personal lives. Executive Producer & CEO of Sunseeker Media Bart Phillips (PINK Visionary), Serial Entrepreneur & TV Personality Maja Sly (PINK Entrepreneur), The Gentlemen’s Foundation Founders Juan & Gee Session-Smalls (PINK Samaritans), and CEO & Founder of Kingdom Reign Entertainment Carlos King (PINK Game Changer) were all awarded for enhancing the trajectory of their respective fields.

Special guests included Cutting It in the ATL’s Beautii J and Lakenya Morris as well as Selling It in the ATL’s Jae Christian, Sarah Lowe, and Chrisena Stanley. Performances from R&B Sensation Vedo and Stellar Award-Nominated Monica Lisa Stevenson, delectable delights from Eat Heavenly Cupcakes, and signature cocktails sponsored by Svedka were some of the additional highlights as the night continued.
