Caribbean Life Impact Award recipient Andrea Bullens of Bullizii Marketing is on to her next big project. The Bronx based marketer who was among 32 New Yorkers of Caribbean heritage who were honored in Brooklyn last month will team with Groovin Radio, 93.5 FM host Ras Clem and Anthony D’ ER Guru of IMAGES Media to host a ritzy, exclusive Jamaican style holiday party for 100 lucky guests on Saturday, Dec. 19 at Club 661, 661 South Columbus Ave. in Mt. Vernon, NY.
The party will serve as a celebratory close-out event for Bullizii Marketing as it marks a banner year filled with many noteworthy accomplishments.
“2015 was a banner year for us so we wanted to do something special to celebrate the close out of the year,” Bullens said.
Bullens said that invited guests are in for a tantalizing culinary treat courtesy of the award winning Door Restaurant in Queens. They will also be treated to sumptuous, traditional Jamaican black cake courtesy of Annilu while Jamaican sorrel will be provided by Grace Foods.
Singer / dj Ras Droppa will provide live entertainment. Droppa’s resume includes entertaining such persons as tennis great Serena Williams at the annual Taste of Tennis — the opening party which kicks off the U.S. Open tournament at Flushing Meadows in Queens where he belted out rock steady, reggae and dancehall hits.
New York based singer Elvis D who in 2012 created a buzz with his John Legend cover song ‘Tonight’ is also booked to perform. Elvis, whose given name Elvis Downer, migrated to the U.S. in 1986 while in his late teens. Four years later, he joined Marty Butler and the People’s Heritage Band in New York playing guitar and doing vocals on a few tracks before going solo. He has released songs including “Love How You Touch Me,” “She Is My Girl,” “Stay Rich” and his debut single “Party Time.”
Bullens said other special invited musicians will be passing through the event. Bajan King of VP Records will provide the music.
Event organizers have announced that attendees will have the opportunity to record Christmas and new years greetings, which will air on the Saudika Diaram TV show on TVJ in Jamaica. For more information about the event, call 347-449-7848.
