(New York, NY - July 26, 2018) NYC marketing and PR firm, EMPKT PR, fired up its engines on July 25th officially launching its new brand with their explosive “Ready for EMPKT” red carpet event at One Art Space in Tribeca! The firm's new name is the acronym “EMPKT” that stands for: ExperientialMarketing and Public Relations that Kin-nectsTM and Transforms. EMPKT also sounds like “impact”, representing the firm’s new focus on businesses, organizations, and individuals who make a positive impact on their audiences, fans, consumers, communities, and/or the world. EMPKT PR President, Beatrice Kimmel, and her staff hosted over 150 guests, among them included Emmy Award winning TV anchor and correspondent Rita Cosby, world-renowned nutrition expert and best-selling author, Dr. Neal Barnard, Broadway actress and Motown: the Musical star, N'Kenge, and former Ms. Venezuela International, Luisa Diaz.
The launch event also raised awareness and funds for the NYC chapter of Friends of the Children, a 25-year-old nonprofit organization that breaks the generational poverty cycle of hundreds of at-risk children around the US. NYC Chapter Executive Director Gary Clemons gave a brief presentation about the organization's achievements. Kevin Watson, a FOTC "friend", also gave his personal account of how his work with the organization has made a lasting impact on a child's life.
The Italian-American luxury and fashion lifestyle magazine, LiveIn Style Magazine, was the exclusive media partner for this event.
Other press members included staff from WPIX 11 TV News, the US Press Association,PopImpressKA Journal, Shefik / Shefik presents Invocation, Buzzfeed, Invocation, and several music and lifestyle blogs.
