Congratulations to MEDIABASE Sr. VP/Music Initiatives ALISSA POLLACK and the events committee -- J/RCA Exec. VP/Promotion RICHARD PALMESE, ISLAND DEF JAM MUSIC GROUP President STEVE BARTELS, J/RCA MUSIC GROUP Exec. VP/Worldwide Marketing & Sales GM TOM CORSON, CAPITOL MUSIC GROUP Chairman/CEO JASON FLOM, PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS Pres./COO KRAIG T. KITCHIN, and MEDIABASE Pres. RICH MEYER -- on a smashing success for last night's TASTE OF HOPE "Wine Tasting Event" at TRIBECA ROOFTOP in NYC, benefiting the CITY OF HOPE.
ALL ACCESS hears it was the heaviest of the heavies gathered together to raise their glasses and lots of cash for the CITY OF HOPE. The CHARLES GOLDSTUCK CAMPAIGN has been the most successful to date, raising over $3.5 million for the CITY OF HOPE.
And it was announced that ALISSA POLLACK was elected to the CITY OF HOPE MUSIC INDUSTRY BOARD. She's the youngest member ever to be named to this prestigous honor.
POLLACK told ALL ACCESS, "To say that I'm honored is an understatement. My sincere thanks to everyone on the CITY OF HOPE MUSIC INDUSTRY BOARD for bestowing such an amazing honor on me. This event couldn't have happened without the incredibly dedicated committee's support and energy. The wonderful outpouring of everyone's generosity and the exceptional donation of all of this wine by JOHN KAPON of ACKER, MERRILL & CONDIT ensured the incredible success of this event."
Meanwhile ... what was everyone talking about at Table #11, while CLEAR CHANNEL VP/AC Programming and WLTW/NEW YORK PD JIM RYAN was holding court? You had to be there to know!
