The Aftermath: Am I Really on Twitter?

Yes, it’s true! I created a Twitter account. It seems that I’ve been running all over the city meeting new people and seeing new places. There is just so much to share that a few tweets would take care of letting you all know where I am, as well as what great new things I’ve discovered! So, add me if you’d like: @tinaontarget.

Last night’s “Young and the Guestlist” event certainly did impress with a fantastic location at The Washington Club, and hosted by Washington Life Magazine. Photographers greeted guests upon entry at this fantastically decorated, charming building.

The split spiral staircase opened up into four distinct rooms with fantastically fast-paced, top shelf bars, dance floor, DJ, photographers Tony Powell and Michael Domingo, live 8-piece band, dinner buffet, and a champagne bar nestled into the balcony. Themed “A Return to Glamour”, this event showcased a number of bold hairstyles and even more daring dress. I am so glad “glamorous cocktail” no longer means knee-length, black dresses. Rich gold’s, deep red’s, angelic white’s, and a number of metallics and ruffles caught my attention. The gentlemen were, of course, dressed to impress – the highlights: Top Chef’s Spike M. donning a unique topper, a few artists and musicians showcasing bold, wide-rimmed glasses, and, of course, pocket handkerchiefs in every design imaginable.

The crowd there seemed to have a disproportionate slant toward philanthropy and were receptive of my Woman of the Year campaign – journey to $100k for cancer research by June 1st! Kate Michael (kstreetkate), herself a workaholic, contributed interesting insight and acknowledged the demanding nature of this campaign. Ray Reagan, 2005 Man of the Year, reminisced about his intense, yet rewarding campaign experience.

Among others in attendance at the event were local owners of the new District Restaurant and Lounge located in Adams Morgan, local businesswomen involved in everything from government contracting to high-end athletic training, artists and stylists from the U street area and press and media from local and national organizations. As guests sprinkled out of The Washington Club around midnight with complimentary, individually-packaged cupcakes, cookies and giftbags, the party continued on at Darlington House and Midtown Lounge’s opening of The Penthouse.

That night, Shiloh Corcel/Cuffs of Love and host of “Level lll The Penthouse” party committed to sponsoring my campaign, so please keep an eye out for this jewelry at my upcoming events where they can be purchased with proceeds benefitting my campaign for blood cancer research.

The jewelry I wore last night (and that has been donated to my launch event’s auction) were donated by Liz Ordonez/Liz O Studios and Daniela Cermanova/Green and Blue Boutique :: they will be in attendance at the L2 Launch April 28th (invite in “Events” section) and auctioning off pieces retailing for $150-$300. Raffle tickets will be only $10!

TINA JEON BIO: WOMAN OF THE YEAR NOMINEE

Originally from Enfield, CT, Tina is a 2008 graduate of Yale University. When her parents could not afford Christmas and birthday presents, they would say “your education is your gift”. She certainly took that to heart. During her time at Yale, Tina worked as a tour guide and Senior Interviewer at the Undergraduate Admissions Office. Academically, she developed an interest in tropical medicine and non-clinical epidemiology, excelling in graduate school courses and writing a thesis challenging popular beliefs on the eradication of yellow fever.

In her sophomore year, Tina founded the Yale Archery Team. This three-time All-American and All-Academic archer piqued her interest in the Latin American Healthcare system while competing as a member of Team USA at a World Ranking Archery Tournament in Venezuela (2007). After taking home 2 individual gold medals from the 2008 World Ranking Tournament in Puerto Rico, Tina moved to the Nation’s capital to work in the healthcare consulting arena.

Throughout her time in Washington, DC, she frequently volunteered at soup kitchens and mentoring programs. As work required her to travel more often, Tina began dedicating her weekends to hosting parties, bartending, and modeling, donating all proceeds to smaller local charities battling both child homelessness and abuse, and providing rehabilitation services. She also began fundraising for her friend’s younger brother, a relapsed Leukemia patient in need of chemotherapy treatments.

Tina graciously accepts the nomination to participate in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year competition and appreciates the opportunity to be a part of such a large and ambitious exercise in philanthropic collaboration. With her team, she hopes to create not only enjoyable events, but also an inspiring campaign and contribute everything possible to aid those affected by blood cancers.

Fun facts: In 2007, Glamour Magazine published “Facebook.com” as Tina’s “secret obsession”, though it actually is Tetris. Her favorite movies are “While You Were Sleeping” and “Kung Fu Panda”. At the gym, she listens to metromixes of Prince. At age 9, she performed at the Basilica of the National Shrine.
