BET EXPERIENCE ’17! Hanging Out At Fan Fest with Patrice Majorie – PICS!By Patrice Majorie and Delaina Dixon | June 27, 2017 | Gals On The Town
This past weekend was the BET Awards, which always kicks off with the BET Experience. Our own Patrice Majorie took on the daunting task of attending as many events as she could in a 24-hour period – and we have to say, she lived up to her assignment!
Like we said, Patrice’s schedule was packed. BET Experience planned a full day of events for its guests, including a slam dunk contest, a celebrity basketball game and the Main Stage featuring a host of celebs. And there was time for causes as well. DKMS who “leads the fight against blood cancer by working with families, communities and organizations to recruit donors and provide patients with second chances at life,” was recruiting volunteers. Patrice gave a swab of both of her cheeks to be put on the bone marrow donation list!
It wouldn’t be the BET experience without “My Black Is Beautiful,” celebrating the products and services that speak to African-American women and women of color.
Drinks, anyone? Courvoisier had a booth and gave away two free shots of their premium liquor.
BET held a casting call to find the next generation of network talent. It’s where Patrice, our resident actress, met Leah Daniels Butler, a casting director and yes, sister to famed director Lee Daniels of The Butler and Empire fame.
The music was pumping with the sounds of MC Lyte in the red at the DJ booth …
and Real 92.3 FM.
Now that’s what we call all in a BET day’s work! Tune in tomorrow for more coverage!
