Carl Holloway and Alecia Collins are natives and residents of Peoria and are doing business as T & A Entertainment. For nearly two years, they have been promoting local events that include birthday parties, a black and white ball and comedy shows. In November 2016, Carl & Alecia promoted a Thanksgiving comedy special featuring veteran comedian/actor Joe Torry.
Earlier this year, Alecia had a vision on what she could do to help motivate and inspire the women of Peoria; to help them enhance their lives. In this vision, she wanted to reach out to women from “All Walks of Life”. While visiting out-of-town, she was introduced to Vivica A. Fox and they spoke about her vision. After several conversations between the two of them, Vivica A. Fox agreed to be the Special Guest Speaker at T & A Entertainment’s 1st Annual Women Empowering Women Seminar/Luncheon/Networking Event in Peoria.
The local guest speakers will include Chama St. Louis, State Representative Jehan Gordan-Booth, Bernice Gordan-Young, Molly Crusen Bishop, Donna Watson, Gigi Gibson, Christy Taylor, Renee Andrews-Lobdell, Janice Parker, and Integrity (Tina Hobson).
This women’s seminar will benefit women from Peoria and surrounding areas. Some of the topics to be covered will include; Spiritual Guidance, Personal Growth, Financial Decisions, Family Values, Overcoming Obstacles, and Education & Career Enhancements. There will also be local vendors at the event which is being held on Saturday, July 22, 2017, 1-5 p.m. at the Travelodge Hotel Conference Center at 4400 N. Brandywine Drive.
