Queens Courier in search of the borough’s next Rising Star

The Queens Courier will once again recognize the “Rising Stars,” a yearly networking event held to honor the borough’s 40 top young professionals.

In years past, the event has boasted attendance of over 400 people and has raised thousands in charity funds. Guest appearances have been made by Borough President Helen Marshall, Former Mets baseball player Darryl Strawberry and just recently, Mike Woods, meteorologist for Fox 5’s Good Day New York. Honorees have included various elected officials and top business leaders. This year hopes to bring that and more, and will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Caesars Club at Citi Field on Thursday, January 31, 2013.

Along with recognizing notable Queens figures, the “Rising Stars” event also provides one of the top networking forums in the borough.

If you know someone you wish you nominate as a “Rising Star,” or are interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Maria Romero at 718-224-5863 ext. 226 or [email protected]. Nominations can also be submitted online at qns.com/nomination.
