On Monday, April 23, 2012, I joined Yoshi’s San Francisco as Director of Marketing & Publicity. After three weeks, I am stepping back, organizing, and setting realistic goals for the future. For the next six months, JFM Presents will be on sabbatical. When it resurfaces, my focus will be exclusively on nonprofit organizations. From now until then, any blog posts here will be business related as Director of Marketing & Publicity, Yoshi’s San Francisco, or personal as Lisa Bautista.
Next Wednesday, March 21, 2012, is our biggest event of the year: the annual RRAZZiversary. I joined Team RRazz in November 2009, so this will be my third RRAZZiversary. The 2010 and 2011 hostesses were Sterling James and Nikki Thomas respectively, both radio personalities for 102.9FM KBLX. Hosting this year’s 4th Annual RRAZZiversary Gala Celebration & Benefit for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is Sharon McNight, an entertainer who performs on Broadway and the Cabaret stage. She was nominated for Broadway’s 1989 Tony Award as Best Actress (Musical) for “Starmites.”
Two things are different this year:
1) The RRAZZiversary is not on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day and
2) The hostess has requested bios in advance of the event.
Note that in 2010, Sterling James filled in last minute for Jan Wahl, and Sterling received my handwritten notes about each performer just minutes before the event! Both Sterling James and Nikki Thomas are Johnny on the spot when it comes to hosting events. As hostess for this year’s event, Sharon McNight will have one week to prepare, and if you have seen Sharon on stage, she is a brilliant entertainer. Tickets are selling fast, so do not wait until the last minute!
