Friday the 19th, INI had the opportunity to offer our DJ and MC services for the first Inspire event. Trish, event organizer along with the Beachside Health Studio team, put on a stellar event with great catering and open bar as well as some terrific entertainment. The guests were treated to two separate performances from our aerialists that stunned and wowed the crowd. I was super impressed and I plan on incorporating them in some events in the future. (Reach out to me for the referral.) KLD was the beneficiary and Kevin Deaton offered a heart warming presentation complete with video and slide show. Steve Ryland of Beachside Health Studio also mentioned that Juice Plus ( nutritional whole food supplement) had an incentive to match all Juice Plus users with a kids nutrition needs from the foundation. Next up for the foundation is Dancing with Brevard!
