Tiziana Dearing has had a lot of experience dealing with the cycles of poverty. Jan Saragoni sat down with Tiziana when she was CEO of Boston Rising in 2011 to discuss her efforts to change people’s understanding of poverty. She is currently an Associate Professor of Macro Practice at the School of Social Work at Boston College and was recently seen on Greater Boston with Jim Braude talking about the situation in Nepal.

Terri Stanley was fortunate enough to interview the late Evelyn Lauder in 2010 for season 2 of styleboston. Mrs. Lauder told us that the idea for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s “Think Pink” and its pink ribbons was hatched over a cup of coffee at her kitchen table, and has grown into a worldwide campaign. A true lady, Mrs. Lauder could teach people a thing or two about grace. Watch this Power Player segment below and continue on for more information about the 2015 Boston Hot Pink. (styleboston will be on site at this year’s gala to catch all the action for a good cause.)
“I’ve never met a more gracious woman. She was without pretense or arrogance–truly amazing.”

Our dear friend Bill Brett shared these photos with us of a very special night. I have known Cathy and Rob Griffin for many years and I knew their son Corey from the time he was born. He had a big heart, embraced everyone and is missed every day. Through this foundation his memory and spirit lives on.
More than 900 guests attended 7’th annual Winter Ball held this year to support the Corey C. Griffin Charitable Foundation, named in honor of Corey, who died in an accident last summer. Corey’s family launched the foundation as a vehicle “to continue Corey’s great philanthropic works and loving spirit – with the mission to improve the quality of life for children in need through healthcare and education programs.”
Last night Jen Royle appeared on ABC prime time television to cook her way onto the hit show The Taste, a kind of “Voice” format where the judges love you or leave you. Jen and Steve Dish It Up on the food combo that got their thumbs up and what it was like to drop everything and head to LA.
The question is…does she make it to the next round?

Executive Producer Terri Stanley created styleboston in 2009 and has seen the show go on to receive four New England Emmy® Award nominations and garner high ratings on both ABC and CBS stations in Boston. Since Terri launched the show she has interviewed former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Best Buddies’ founder Anthony Shriver, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and actor/director Ed Burns. Terri earned her style stripes as Executive Editor of Boston Common, the preeminent New England luxury lifestyle magazine, where she interviewed leaders in business, sports, and entertainment and was previously the Editor-in-Chief of Scene magazine. A Boston native, Terri was president of New Boston Properties for 15 years. She has a degree from the Carroll School of Management at Boston College and is a member of both The Council for Women at Boston College and Boston Women in Media and Entertainment.
Jan Saragoni is usually so busy running her eponymous public relations and communications firm that trying to schedule a photo shoot proved impossible. That’s why we had to snap this shot of her in her “casual Mondays” garb shortly after she left her firm’s headquarters, which also double as the second floor of her Cambridge residence. A Boston native who initially trained as a reporter, Jan knows every short cut from here to there and can rattle off every hotspot, former hotspot and the site of every great news story or moment of history along the way. Unfortunately, she drives like she is from Boston and has yet to offer a reasonable explanation as to why her closest friends and family members refer to her as “Jane” or “Janie.” She is fluent in Italian, and holds an Italian passport, which makes it all the more confusing why she owns a home on the Greek island of Hydra. The styleboston.tv staff has learned that she has been asked by friends in the publishing world — who should know better — to consider writing a book or travel piece about her Hellenic adventures. Jan has suggested “Under the Trojan Sun” as a possible title and can’t understand why that might not be as clever an idea as she thinks it is.
Carol Beggy has a big Rolodex (remember those?) and is not afraid to use it. She loves books and other Old World pursuits but lives totally in the modern world where you carry a thousand books on your e-reader. A former reporter and editor at the Boston Globe, Carol is currently working with Bill Brett on his book “Boston: Irish” due out in Fall 2014. It is their fifth collaboration. She likes pina coladas, dancing in the rain and talking to people on elevators about what they are reading.
