Roger is the event photographer for Cosmopolitan Connections.
“I’ve known Roger for four years,” Yvette stated. “He’s been our event photographer for the past two years.”
“He’s been at every single event since the first event,” continued Yvette.
Roger recalled that event, “I was at the first event at Rare 120 at Hard Rock in March 2010.”
“Early on I had faith that she’d be successful,” Roger stated. “It (the weekly event) is something I truly and sincerely look forward to.”
“He takes phenomenal pictures and we are really appreciative,” Yvette added. “They go everywhere.”
“This birthday party is for us all to show Roger how much we all care,” continued Yvette.
The feeling is mutual for Roger. According to Roger, “I love working with Yvette. She’s a hard worker. I like watching them (the weekly events) continue to grow and progress.”
“I don’t see her losing steam anytime soon,” added Roger.
The event took place at Via Brasil Steakhouse located at 1225 S. Fort Apache Road, which offered multiple choices for the crowd to mingle, including the bar area and the patio.
“Via Brasil is our favorite Rodizio restaurant and an amazing venue to hold Roger’s birthday at,” stated Yvette.
“We love utilizing the bar area which is very intimate,“ Yvette remarked. “It is very beautiful on the patio as well.”
“We always have five dollar drink specials when we have our events here and three dollar appetizers,” Yvette added. ”And as a bonus for our guests we will get to enjoy Roger’s birthday cake.”
