Turning the Spotlight On The Men & Women of Media ☆ Photographers ☆ Videographers ☆ On-Line Reporters

Beverly Hills, CA - Now here's a guy who really has his act together. David Harrison Levi, the guy in the above this photo with movie camera.

We all know how the media hate to go to award events unless its the Oscars, Grammy's or Emmys. But what if the awards or event had a reverse role, where the men and women, who cover those events, photographers, videographers, writers, reporters, Online Bloggers, etc became the event? 

Sounds more intriguing and more fun. It also lets photogs know just how bright those dam lights can be in pitch black darkness. I was surprised to learn when I RSVP for the event, that this reporter will be honored, so how can I refuse? Right? 

The "exclusive event" is set for August 18th, 8 p.m. at the Beverly Hills Restaurant | Italian &  Asian cuisine at Villa Blanca Restaurant, Beverly Hills. If you Google it, you see that Levi has a lot of class, especially for honoring the media and selecting a great venue. 

Well, David Harrison Levi, who has a great reputation for throwing great events has kicked it up a notch. Here's the info provided, so if you are media you might want to stop by to check it out. I haven't gone to an event like this since Media Bistro started their event networking, which began as journalists (many free lancers sharing war stories and job openings) to media and PR Pros sneaking in to pass around their business cards. Here's everything you need to know about the event and afraid to ask in the news advisory below.

Oh I forgot to mention this guy has great philanthropy. He's always raising awareness for breast cancer. MAYO recently staged a fundraiser for breast cancer -MAMMOJAM 2010- with Louis Van Amstel, ABC's Dancing with the Stars, which drew nearly 400 (85% women) to a Hollywood nightclub, where Louis performed a live dance lesson with a packed house and music. It was also awesome. EXTRA, ABC-TV, Examiner and other media including US Magazine covered the story. You feel good, have fun and all for a good cause. 

This is how I personally connected with David Harrison Levi. He gives from the heart and asks for nothing in return. My Mom who died of Multiple Sclerosis on Mothers' Day used to tell me. "There's one thing you can never give away, and that's kindness, because it always comes back." She must have been talking about people like David Harrison Levi.

So now we finally get to meet. I will share my pictures and story later this month. Now this.....
