WALK THE PURPLE CARPET AND
SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE USING
#LILACFEST TO WIN! 

“America’s Got Talent” Winner Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr.,
Headlines Opening Day With FREE Lunchtime Concert

UntitledROCHESTER, NY, April 29, 2015 — Hollywood may have its red carpet, but in Rochester, we show our Passion for Purple—and on Friday, May 8, we’re asking everyone to help us show the world our famous Rochester Lilac Festival! Come to Highland Park for a Hollywood inspired opening celebration, walk the Purple Carpet and share your experience with hashtag #lilacfest.

“We want #lilacfest to take over social media and trend nationally on opening day,” said Jeff Springut, producer of the Rochester Lilac Festival “People around the world will know about our famous lilacs, our famous festival, and our famous city.”

The festival kicks off at 10:30 a.m. and the real celebration begins at 12 noon with a free lunchtime concert that will have everyone dancing in front of the Sahlen’s Music Stage. America’s Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr., brings his big band-style voice, reminiscent of Frank Sinatra, and Billboard chart-topping sound to the festival for two sets at 12:15 and 1:15.

When you arrive at the festival between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., follow the signs at Highland Park to the Purple Carpet, where volunteers will take your photo. Share your experience on Instagram or Twitter with hashtag #lilacfest, and you will be entered to win the grand prize: Two tickets to anywhere in the continental United States on Delta Airlines.

Opening day of the 2015 Rochester Lilac Festival is sponsored by Royal Car Wash. Parking is free until 3 p.m., and the opening events will take place rain or shine.

Eat your way to even more prizes
With hundreds of menu items and more than 40 food and beverage stops, the Rochester Lilac Festival offers something delicious for everyone. During the Opening Day Celebration until 2 p.m. on Friday, May 8, festivalgoers will have a chance to win one of many prizes: a package from Royal Car Wash, an All You Can Eat at the Rochester Lilac Festival experience, backstage meet and greets with festival headliners, and more. Visit any of the food and beverage stops to pick up a sweepstakes entry form. The more stops you visit, the more chances you have to win.

“Opening day is just the beginning of the Lilac Festival culinary experience,” said Springut. “From Nick Tahou’s famed garbage plate and Abbott’s Frozen Custard to an international smorgasbord including gyros, falafel, Caribbean wraps, sushi, Indian cuisine, artichokes French and more, it takes all ten days to eat your way through the Rochester Lilac Festival.”

Paying it Forward – YSU Diversity Leadership Celebration

 

Landau Murphy Jr. spreads message of paying it forward

WKBN Staff

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Friday was a night to showcase not only student leadership, but to help spread the message of paying it forward.

The Youngstown State University Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs presented the 2015 Diversity Leadership Recognition Celebration, honoring YSU students for their contributions on campus. The event was held at Stambaugh Auditorium.

The added bonus for the event was a performance by 2011 America’s Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.

“Paying it forward. That is what Landau has been doing. He is a good example for our young people, whether it is high school or college age. And grown folks continue to pay it forward,” said Dr. Sylvia J. Imler, interim director of the YSU Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.

Murphy said his success should help inspire others.

“I feel my blessing has been a blessing to me and it should be a blessing to other people. When they asked me to come out and do this function, and we sat down and talked about it, actually in my concert in West Virginia, we decided to make it happen,” Murphy said.

This year’s scholarship recipient and Diversity Award winners also were proud of Murphy’s message.

“Acceptance and actual recognition for the work you put in, is more than words can describe,” said James MacGregor, who won the Leader of Tomorrow award.

“It is more rewarding to give back. Even a plaque or award does not mean anything. It is just the human connections, human relationships you make with other people,” said Catherine Cooper, who won the Leadership Scholarship.
