Oakland, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2007
According to U.S. Small Business Administration, over 50% of small businesses fail in the first five years of operation. D.R. Roberts Event Management, Inc. has beat those odds handily, and done so with flair, skill and confidence. President and CEO Deanna Roberts is proud that her company is celebrating 10 successful years of fulfilling clients' dreams and exceeding their expectations. Robert's clients know they needn't agonize over event planning details when she is at the helm. D.R. Roberts Event Management, Inc. expertly plans and produces private, corporate and public affairs from beginning to end--from concept to conclusion.
Art auctions, conferences, corporate parties, cultural festivals, fundraising galas, group travel tours, health fairs, sporting events, weddings; D.R. Roberts Event Management, Inc. has successfully planned and produced all of these events and countless others throughout the United States.
San Francisco Bay Area media icon Renel Brooks-Moon stated, "Event planning takes very special skills and personality traits. Deanna Roberts possesses them all: professionalism, passion, efficiency and organization." Brooks-Moon--who is a 98.1 KISS-FM radio personality, the "voice of the San Francisco Giants," and an Oakland Raiders TV network correspondent--went on, "I've worked many events over the last 22 years in this market; I know I can rest easy when Deanna and her crew are running the show. She is always prepared and focused, while taking pride in preparing all of the details for her events."
Included among the numerous occasions in which Roberts has showcased her organizational aptitude and creative talents: planned weddings and post-nuptial celebrations for over 200 couples; produced several Oakland Raiders football game half-time shows, the Allan Houston Celebrity Golf Tournament, and the San Francisco Bay Area production of the Broadway hit "Bring in the Noise, Bring in the Funk." Roberts is certainly known in the San Francisco Bay Area for producing the notable monthly networking and socializing mixers for First Fridays of the Bay Area, particularly its annual "White" Party, which this year drew more than 3,000 business professionals, celebrities and socialites to Oakland, CA's scenic Preservation Park.
100 Black Men of the Bay Area, Inc., Behind the Bench NBA Wives, Budweiser, City of Oakland, Dental Health Foundation, Gatorade, Golden State Warriors, and Tanqueray are also among the numerous satisfied clientele Deanna Roberts has served across the U.S. during her company's ten years of extraordinary event planning and continuous business growth.
Geoffrey Williams, president of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of the National Lymphoma Research Foundation, stated, "Deanna Roberts' involvement with our annual Lymphomathon (a non-competitive 5K walk where survivors, family, friends, community and corporate teams walk in honor and in memory of those whose lives have been touched by lymphoma) over the last three years has brought more and more attention to the disease and the Foundation's research and fundraising efforts." Williams continued, "Lymphoma is the second fastest rising cancer in the United States and the third most common childhood cancer. We are grateful to Deanna and her company for helping our cause. We are blessed to have her on our team!"
D.R. Roberts Event Management has not escaped the attention of the press. Several print and broadcast media have featured her and her company, including Ebony Magazine, in an issue in which Roberts provided advice and tips on how to plan a successful family reunion.
