Wendy Gladney Brooks

Hello Riverside!  I am so excited about the opportunity to join the Black Voice News family and write about the world of "Events" and what's going on in the Inland Empire!  I want to thank the Brown  family, and especially Paulette and Regina for this relationship.

I am truly a hometown girl that was born and raised in Riverside.  I am third generation coming from my grandmother, affectionately known as "Mother Dear," and my father, Johnny Harris.  I still live in the Inland Empire and have been in the Event Industry for over fifteen years.  Our company specializes in organizing Meetings, Conferences, Seminars & Special Events.  We also provide Consulting Services in the area of Community Relations.

You can also read our tips in the SAVE THE DATE Magazine, published by my sister Sarah Harris, also a native of Riverside, The Los Angeles Sentinel, and the Black Business Newspaper of Los Angeles.  You can also hear me on 102.3 KJLH Radio Friday Mornings at 5:00am on "Front Page with Dominique DiPrima."  When this relationship began to blossom back in Riverside, I had to jump on it and come back home!

Each week I plan to bring you information and tips that will give you information, direction and ideas on how to have an exceptional event.  We will also highlight from time to time what is happening around the Inland Empire to keep you informed and in touch.  If you have a question about event planning or if you plan to have any type of  event, including fundraising dinners, golf tournaments,  a social function or something at your church, feel free to email me at and we will try to give you helpful tips and let the community know about what you are doing.

Thank you again to the Brown  Family and I look forward to growing with all of you.  Remember to always give your best in all that you do!
