The first two events of 2011 are scheduled and one has already SOLD OUT.
February 17 we will be in the Elvis Suite on the roof of the Hilton in Las Vegas. This event is completely sold out – 100 of the most interesting and influential people in America. We have Casino Presidents, a NASCAR Driver, the former Mayor and a dozen celebrities.
March 2 we will be in the Foundation at the House of Blues West Hollywood. Still have a few open guest spots for this one, however they won’t last long! These are private, invitation-only events for my clients and close friends. My only agenda is for my friends to meet each other.
VEGAS Magazine Ones to Watch – The Godfather is mentioned in VEGAS Magazine this month as "The Ones to Watch", however the URL is "Most Powerful People You Never Heard Of". Not sure if I should be offended or excited! Palms CMO Jason Gastwirth is on the list with me, so it’s an honor to be selected. Check out the list at http://www.vegasmagazine.com/home-page/articles/most-powerful-people-youve-never-heard-of.
Horse Racing, Part 1 – Congratulations to the connections of Zenyatta, winner of the 2010 Horse of the Year Eclipse award. As you may know, I have a special connection to Zenyatta. Sponsored a "wish" through Make-A-Wish for a young girl that wanted to meet jockey Mike Smith. Check out the heart tugging video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM8p3iImqec.
Horse Racing, Part 2 – I’ll be in Ocala, Florida in March to acquire one or two race horses. Buy-in is approximately $10,000 up front for 20% of a horse and $600 a month for training. They will run at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park and Del in California with trainer Michael Machowsky. If you have interest, call me!
