Hey, Brooklyn — we’re looking for a few good men!
Schneps Community News Group’s parent company Schneps Communications is issuing a last call for nominations for our eighth-annual Kings of Kings awards, recognizing Brooklyn’s top businessmen and leaders for their outstanding contributions to the local community.
This year’s borough monarchs will be feted in regal style on Nov. 14 from 6 to 9 pm among an expected 500 guests at Mill Basin’s El Caribe Country Club, where Man of the Year honors will be bestowed on Erik Coleman, a former New York Jets safety and current sports analyst for CBS.
Coleman will be the latest to join a growing list of individuals who have been honored at the Kings of Kings event — which features a business-networking expo ahead of the awards ceremony — including former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, journalist Geraldo Rivera, and former New York Giants defensive lineman Leonard Marshall.
And those distinguished gents are part of a larger group of luminaries who have received tributes at other Schneps Communications ceremonies, including such notable women as Judge Patricia DiMango, television-news anchor Rosanna Scotto, and actress Linda Dano.
To nominate someone for a Kings of Kings honor, or to attend the event, call Lori Pedone at (347) 225–3657 e-mail her at Lpedo
