Courier Power List

Celebrate the borough’s biggest influencers at The Queens Courier’s Inaugural Power List!

On Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Terrace on the Park, we will pay tribute to those leaders of industry, as determined by The Queens Courier and Power List Committee.

As some of the most powerful movers and shakers in the borough, the Power List recognizes the influence and impact have sustained over the past year and it’s time to celebrate!

To learn more, or to get your tickets, call Tonia N. Comini at 718-224-5863 ext. 227 or email tcimino@schnepscommunications.com.
