Atlanta, GA — On the eve one of hip hop’s biggest weekends, Shavewise™, the new shave system for men who want a great shave without irritation, hosted the Men of Distinction Gentlemen’s Luncheon at the elite Georgian Club in north Atlanta. Ten honorees with backgrounds in music, arts and entertainment were recognized for their industry achievements, commitment to excellence and community advocacy.
Scott spoke on the importance of education in regards to male grooming, “When men look good, they feel good and we know that confidence plays a huge role in the road to success.”
“I was honored to be included in today’s luncheon,” noted Greggory Smith, associate director – writer/Publisher Relations of SESAC. “We had the rare opportunity to converse about some real community issues. I am really happy to be associated with a company that is proactive in being a resource for our community.”
Gentlemen honored included: Afemo Omilami (NAACP Image Award Nominated actor); Greggory Smith (SESAC); Julian Lark (editor-in-chief of Kontrol Magazine); Kevin Cottrell (NBA TV digital researcher); Maurice Garland (radio host and celebrated hip hop historian); Mel Simms (co-founder of ATLBARZ); Steve Smith (former NBA Player); Terry Shropshire (editor-at-large for The Atlanta Daily World); and Vincent Martinez (celebrated publisher of Fashionado.net).
The Men of Distinction luncheon was the first of many upcoming community initiatives from Shavewise. “Recognizing men in Atlanta mostly from the music industry was a great start because of the timing of the weekend,” explained Love. “Atlanta is known for its amazing contributions to hip hop, and we were happy to be a part of this very special week. We look forward to recognizing Shavewise Men of Distinction across the country.”
