This week I am happy to highlight businesswoman Jennifer Holmes, also known as J Boss of J Boss Entertainment. It feels good to not be the only female out here in the game. Women are really stepping up their game.
Jennifer Holmes, CEO of J Boss Entertainment, and Don Colman, CEO of Flipside Entertainment, have linked up to provide a platform for artists every Tuesday night at Seville’s Night Club in the beautiful city of Riverside. Several local artists are given an opportunity to showcase their talents at “Taco Tuesday Night” held at Seville’s Night Club starting at 8 p.m.. “The goal is to bring Hollywood to the IE while providing an upscale atmosphere,” Jennifer stated.
Holmes and Colman are currently working to bring headliners such as, R&B sensation Ray J, Young Sam, Problem, Joe Moses and many more to the City. Last week Glasses Malone took the stage and gave an awesome performance along with local acts, which included, Speaker Junkiez ENT, Kolby Cordell and Young Stress. On October 8, Paul Douglas will bless the mic.
Colman and Holmes do more than provide entertainment. They also go above and beyond to give back to their community. The dynamic duo is coordinating a blanket and jacket drive. The fundraiser will take place on October 22. Entry into Seville’s that night will be free until 11 p.m. with a donated item. For more information on how to support the mission or to perform, please contact J Boss at 760-486-3111.
SAN BERNARDINO, CA- This past weekend, Saturday, September 6, 22 young women competed for the honor of representing San Bernardino High School, Cardinal City and the City of San Bernardino. During the pageant, Miss Cardinal City contestants were ranked by a panel of judges in on-stage categories ranging from sportswear, evening gown and an on-stage question. Off-stage categories included grades, attendance and personal interviews.
According to pageant director and Bilingual School Outreach Worker Jamie Rios, two of the goals for Miss Cardinal City and related pageant Mr. Cardinal City are to develop students’ confidence and raise community awareness and pride in San Bernardino High and the city.
“San Bernardino High is the oldest public high school in the entire county,” she states. “It is also part of two cities. Many people don’t realize the high school itself is a chartered city, Cardinal City. With that kind of history and community significance, I felt we needed ambassadors, young people who could represent all these different and note-worthy aspects of San Bernardino High School.”
Sponsors that helped to make the pageant a success were Stater Bros. Markets, D’Arca Formal Wear, Angel’s Closet, Fairview Ford, The Way World Outreach, Marinello Schools of Beauty, San Bernardino Sun newspaper, San Bernardino High School Class of 1961, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hickey, Mrs. Pat Williams, First Ward Councilwoman Virginia Marquez, Mr. Jim Smith, Mr. Anyabwile Naazir, Mr. and Mrs. Greg Noble, Ms. Charlene Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Arellano, Mr. Richard Carlos, San Bernardino City Unified School District, and San Bernardino High School Associated Student Body (ASB).
