Girl Scouts Honor Collette Liantonio as one of 2014’s Women of Achievement
For Immediate Release:
BOONTON, N.J. (October 21, 2013) – Once known for Thin Mints, Samoas and those peanut butter Tagalongs, the Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey (GSNNJ) now stand for something much sweeter - girl power. With a mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character, GSNNJ supports, participates in and orchestrates many leadership programs promoting the empowerment of girls. Their latest endeavor being 2014’s Women of Achievement benefit.
The annual benefit pays tribute to women within the community who have professionally or personally contributed to making the world a better place for girls. One of those honorees will be Collette Liantonio, Owner, President and Creative Director for Concepts TV.
As her award-winning production company celebrates 30 years of DRTV success, Collette Liantonio is considered one of the top 25 most influential people in DRTV. Liantonio balances being a wife, a mother and a grandmother with owning a multi-million dollar company and sitting on various boards. As a member of the Women Presidents Organization (WPO), The Woman’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and the Women-Owned Business Enterprise for New York City (WBE), Liantonio is a strong advocate for female leadership and entrepreneurship, making her an aspirational role model for young women.
The benefit will be hosted Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park. While guests dine on a festive dinner and hear fascinating tributes from the northern NJ honorees, they will also have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction.
Concepts TV will be offering walk-on roles for their commercials in said auction. All proceeds from Women of Achievement will provide financial assistance to girls in need, especially within GSNNJ’s urban areas.
Concepts TV Productions, based in Boonton, N.J., is one of the world’s most experienced producers of DRTV commercials and infomercials. Its direct marketing expertise has helped our clients achieve billions of dollars in sales. Many infomercials have become direct response television legends as a result of outstanding sales success.
