Blacktie-Colorado officially welcomed entertainment and society columnist Penny Parker to its team with an early evening party June 19 hosted at Elway's Cherry Creek.
On hand to celebrate were dignitaries and guests from all walks of the city's social scene. Blacktie LLC CEO Kenton Kuhn introduced Parker and formally announced Parker's three-times-a-week On the Town column on the Blacktie-Colorado website; it began in mid-April. Also announced at the party was Parker's new column in the 17 suburban newspapers operated by Colorado Community Media newspapers; those newspapers ring Denver from Thornton to Castle Rock and serve 300,000 readers. CCM Publisher Jerry Healey also welcomed Parker and spoke about her role in helping the new joint venture gain reader loyalty.
Parker spoke briefly to thank attendees, all of whom she personally invited and who have long and influential community ties. A big round of applause followed her remarks.
Just ShutterUP entertained party-goers with a full-size photo booth. Appetizers and a selection of wines came from Elway's.
Penny, it's great to have you as part of Team Blacktie!
