Laz Alonso Named Celebrity Travel Ambassador for American Airlines

Not sure exactly what a Celebrity Travel Ambassador job responsibilities include, but I’m sure it involves a major paycheck for the star, most known for his roles in Jumping The Broom and Avatar.

To celebrate Laz Alonzo’s shiny new title, American Airlines and threw an event in New York to announce the partnership. The private invite only event was hosted at the Studio Museum of Harlem with a special performance by Melanie Fiona, Rakiem Walker Band and DJ Cosi spinning for the crowd.

New York urban elite, socialites and industry execs do not like to miss a party, and this party was one for the society pages. Publicist Christina Rice welcomed guests and notables, including Jennifer Williams, Al Reynolds, blogger Necole Bitchie, fashion designer KiKi Peterson, Chuck Creekmur, model Chasity Saunders, celebrity dentist Catrice Austin and more.

The event was catered by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Harlem restaurant, Red Rooster, and guests stayed cool while sipping on the complimentary cocktails.

With a room full of New York’s movers and shakers, we can only wonder exactly what conversations were had.
