JQ was literally my life saver! She recently assisted me in planning a celebrity waiter night to raise money for Spoonful of Hope. She is organized, persistent and has awesome ideas.

Date: May 13,2017 7:00pm-11:00pm

JQSportsPR, LLC will present its first annual ‘Who Got Next’ Celebrity Eat & Greet Private Dinner. This special occasion will be revitalizing and the most influential sports event in the Chicago area. The sports community will be able to come together at Truth Italian Restaurant for a time to meet this year's 2017 NBA Combine participants, network and connect with like minded individuals. Jaquese “JQ” Smith, owner of JQSportsPR , has interviewed some of the nation’s top male basketball athletes, such as, 2017 NBA projected draft picks, Dennis Smith Jr, DeAaron Fox, Bam Adebayo and Rawle Alkins to name a few.

Athletes, family, friends and businesses can utilize this time to meet and greet one another, form new relationships and provide advice to the young athletes. Bringing these individuals together under one roof will be the beginning of a smooth transition for the future stars. Special guests will feature 2017 NBA Combine participants, current and former NFL players and Lifetime Series 'Bringing Up Ballers' Peytyn Willborn. All guests will immediately experience a 'celebrity' atmosphere while walking the red carpet in the presence of various media outlets from the Chicago area.

JQ, owner of JQSportsPR, was invited to cover the Nike EYBL games and interviews former NBA player Penny Hardaway.

JQSportsPR's audience is a diverse community of athletes, coaches, trainers and parents. For many college athletes that are making the transition into professional sports are faced with mental roadblocks due to little to no professional guidance and genuine support. This transition can have a profound psychological effect on players, which is not always positive. Surrounding a player with professional consultants and individuals who give natural support is imperative for their future. The ‘Who Got Next’ annual event is the first stop to jump start their road to success. JQSportsPR encourages you to use your power for good and support not only the 'BallisLife' lifestyle but also the 'ToolsForSuccess' necessary to lead productive lives on and off the court.

Peytyn Willborn’s newest creation boasts both an indoor and outdoor Bistro, with an art deco design that soothes the visual palette.
