On Saturday, June 20, Ford Motor Company hosted Atlanta’s unofficial summer kick-off, appropriately titled Take Flight With Ford, which was an exclusive, invitation-only soirée held at a private airport hangar.

Guests in attendance were treated to test drives in a fleet of fully-equipped 2014 Ford Fusion sedans, complimentary cocktails courtesy of Jack Daniels, and an interactive experience that included a live art installation, a giant puzzle, billiards and cigar rolling.

With the help of the event’s host, actress Keshia Knight-Pulliam, K.P. Smith, Marketing Development Manager for Ford in the Southeast region, recognized the #FORDATL Ambassadors for the event, all who were selected because their accomplishments demonstrate how they “Go Further” in their respective careers. The #FORDATL Ambassadors included: music industry veteran Shanti Das, Sheri Riley, Founder of Exponential Living, CNN Correspondent Rashan Ali, National Director of Promotions at Interscope Records, Keinon Johnson, successful sports agent, Chris Luchey, and Lena Danielle, Owner of lint BOUTIQUE.

The event was also attended by a few of Atlanta’s celebrities, including: Cynthia Bailey of Real Housewives of Atlanta, LaTavia Roberson and Meelah Williams of R&B Divas Atlanta, Monyetta Shaw of VH1 Atlanta Exes; former Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast member DJ Traci Steele; and Atlanta City Council member Kwanzaa Hall.
