START THE Y E A R O FF FRESH REALTOR ANGIE LUCAS CAN HELP YOU FIND THE PERFECT HOME IN 2019

WE HAVE TALKED A LOT ABOUT RESOLUTIONS AND STARTING OFF FRESH. For many people, that can mean joining a gym or setting a personal goal to complete this year. For others, that can mean decluttering and taking on a minimalistic approach to their life. This new fresh start may include moving, selling your old home or purchasing a new home in 2019.  Finding a home that matches your lifestyle can seem daunting, but Angie Lucas is here to help you find the perfect fit. Angie is a realtor with Samson Properties who is familiar and extremely knowledgeable about the communities in Prince George’s County. She can offer a free competitive market analysis, let buyers and sellers know what is going on in the community, and share demographics and statistics.  Angie is available for in-person consultations to discuss buying and selling their properties. She has been in real estate for almost 15 years and knows how to find what her clients are looking for. “All communities are different, but I can share statistics and necessary information. I study homes, prices, price trends and events going on in the community that can affect pricing or the sale of a home,” Angie says. She is able to access multitudes of properties like the home pictured below. This recently renovated property has four bedrooms, a master with an en-suite with a jacuzzi tub, a great room and a pool in the backyard that is perfect for entertaining.  To discuss your real estate needs, call 240.832.5689 or email angie@homesbyangielucas.com.

JILL MCCLANAHAN AND DEANDRE KELLY MET BY CHANCE AT A 30TH BIRTHDAY BRUNCH FOR JILL’S DAUGHTER. DeAndre came to her home and catered a breakfast brunch. Jill and DeAndre struck up a conversation and shared their aspirations for working in the community, helping others and sharing a love of the culinary world. Before long, the two motivated individuals had teamed up to accomplish great (and delicious) things.  Cooks & Chefs Catering, LLC caters any type of event including intimate dinners, anniversaries, weddings, festivals, birthday parties—anything  you can imagine—and brings delicious cuisine with a twist into your home. “We come in and cook in your home so you have a fresh, hot meal when your guests arrive. Everything is ready for you to sit down and have a great experience with your guests,” Jill says. “It is a cool concept that is becoming more popular, but it gives a different feeling than regular catering.” A few of their signature dishes are Thai chili shrimp over rice, bourbon barbecue chicken  and their own personal spin on chicken and waffles. With the focus on wellness in the new year, Cooks & Chefs Catering, LLC can create delectable meals for your event with your health in mind including a fresh blackberry salad. Jill is a personal trainer and a group fitness instructor  and is always looking out for healthier options. They will also be starting cooking classes this year for people who are interested in enhanc-

ing their own cooking skills. Cooks & Chefs Catering, LLC hosts events for the community that everyone loves. They have hosted a dinner etiquette class for kids in which they teach young people proper table manners. One of their most popular events last year was “Dinner in September.” Four local chefs competed for the title of Top Chef. Thirty-five guests attended and were served a total of 16 dishes to judge. “I had wanted to showcase the chefs in our county and in our area give them a platform to show their talent and create a dinner on a budget with style. It was an awesome event,” Jill says. This will be an annual event every September. The reigning Top Chef will have to put her title up against three other chefs.  Another event that is perfect for kicking off your health and wellness journey this year is a monthly happy hour. “We team up with one of the fitness studios called Girl Fit Workout in Upper Marlboro,” Jill says. “Our instructors come in and demo their class, and then we provide the food and drinks for the event.”   Sounds like a great reason to work out!

GIVING BACK

Concerts for Causes, Inc. GIVING BACK ONE MUSICAL INSTRUMENT AT A TIME

MUSIC IS A GIFT THAT CAN REACH EVERYONE. “There is some form of music that is for everybody. The love for music is amazing, and anyone can get involved in music if you just try something. Most people have a desire to get involved in music, and there are always ways to start off as a beginner, and it can very rewarding,” says Brett Murray, founder of Concerts for Causes, Inc. Concerts for Causes is a nonprofit organization that raises funds to give musical instruments to students in underserved communities. Brett began his organization in 2012. “I have always had a love for music, and there is a tremendous need in the community,” Brett says. “There are so many dedicated programs. Growing up, music made a big difference in my life, but they don’t supply instruments as they have in the past.” Brett decided to change that by getting instruments into the hands of students who may not otherwise get the opportunity with the “Save the Music” program. Musical education is important and can be life-changing because it sparks students’ interest and encourages them to learn in alternative ways. “There are studies on left and right brain. Many people are not reached in the traditional methods of education. Many people give up on education if they are not able to learn,” Brett says. “Arts and music stimulation can help with enhanced learning skills.” Also, students involved in music get the benefit of being a part of a group, learning how to work together and learning team-building skills. Studies show that music education helps people learn math skills, reading and things they have never learned before it finally started to register as they got involved in music that kept their interest.

GIVING BACK

(CON TI N U ED)

“Fifty percent of students or more will drop out of school if they have no stimulation. Ninety-five percent of students involved in musical or arts programs graduate and go on to higher learning,” Brett says. In order to raise funds for purchasing musical instruments and to donate to groups in need, such as wounded warriors, Concerts for Causes hosts large events including the Savor Bowie: Food, Wine and Music Festivalat the Bowie Towne Centre. The spring 2018 event brought in 24,000 people over two days. The one-day fall event usually brings in 10,000 people. The spring 2019 Savor Bowie: Food, Wine and Music Festival is free to enter and will be held on April 13-14 at the Bowie Towne Centre. Food, drink and wares are available for purchase from vendors, and there is also a free wine tasting. Patrons can listen to music on two stages from about 24 different musical acts. Proceeds from these events go toward  purchasing instruments for students. “People can support us through donations, but when we do our events, we raise money through these concerts and at the festivals. People support the vendors and sponsors who in turn support our organization,” Brett says. With these events and large concerts, students who received instruments and had gone on to college will often come back to perform with the orchestra for these star-studded events. Some of the other programs hosted by Concerts for Causes are the One Night benefit concert featuring Gerald Alston from the Manhattans, Howard Hewett from Shalamar and Russell Thompkins Jr. from the Stylistics. “We wrote out the music score for all of their songs to have the orchestra to play with them, then added a choir with them. We wanted to create a supergroup,” Brett says. All of the hard work is rewarded when the organization can surprise students with instruments. “We work with the schools, but we give the instruments directly to students. I go shopping at the music stores and buy up to 20 brandnew instruments and come into the place like Santa Claus,” Brett says. “These are kids that may not be used to receiving brand-new gifts with no strings attached. It can be very emotional for these students when they realize that these are their instruments. They can keep them through the summer and take them to college if they choose to pursue music.” Another way they surprise students is to bring them on stage at events and present them with an instrument. Concerts for Causes would give free tickets to the musical directors, who would then bring students to the shows to be surprised with their very own instrument. Over the last year, they were able to give away 300 instruments to deserving students. “Sometimes when we present an instrument, the student begins to cry, which causes everyone else to cry, and that raw emotion is there due to the power of music,” Brett says.

ARTICLE ALYSON TURNER PHOTOGRAPHY RO MORENO

“WE DELIVER PROFESSIONAL VISION CARE WITH A PERSONAL TOUCH FOR YOU.” The mission statement of Special Eye Care optometry run by Dr. Lamont Bunyon, OD, and Dr. Mesheca C. Bunyon conveys the significance of having consistent eye exams and the quality of care that you will receive at Special Eye Care. Dr. Lamont Bunyon and Dr. Mesheca C. Bunyon are experienced optometrists who can care for the whole family even seeing children as young as 8 years old all the way up to adults. Dr. Lamont Bunyon explains how a routine eye exam is important to your overall well-being. “An eye exam is the best way to not only check and see if you have a need for glasses or contacts to see better, but to also check for high blood pressure, diabetes, cataracts  and glaucoma that we can screen for very quickly,” he says. “We can use a magnifying handheld instrument called an ophthalmoscope and view the blood vessels in your retina to determine evidence of medical issues.” 30

Bowie Lifestyle | January 2019


Once the eye exam is complete, you will be empowered to take charge of your health. That might include a brandnew pair of glasses or contacts. Special Eye Care offers designer frames and high-fashion eyewear including Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Ferragamo, Dulci & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Cazal and CoCo & Breeze. Whether you are looking for designer frames or searching for the best value, there is something for everyone.

WELCOME TO BODY BY BENJAMIN

We offer cosmetic surgery by a board certified plastic surgeon you can trust. Dr. James R. Benjamin will give you the best advice for you to obtain the results you are looking for, at affordable prices. Dr. Benjamin is located in Bowie, Maryland, where he also resides with his family. He performs surgery at University of Maryland Capital Region Surgery Center in Bowie as well as the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Though Dr. James R. Benjamin has performed numerous types of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, he has specialized in Body Contouring procedures over the last 20 years.

SMARTLIPO™

He was one of the first Plastic Surgeons in Maryland to utilize the Smartlipo™ laser assisted - liposuction to obtain superior results in that contouring. He is skilled in the operating room and in the consultation room, ascertaining exactly what it is you are looking for, in order to give you the look you want and can realistically expect.

BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT

The very popular Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the procedures he specializes in to add volume and shape to the contouring process. He utilizes liposuction and fat grafting to obtain his superior results. For the most natural results, he does not utilize implants for buttock augmentation due to his personal preferences.

BREAST AUGMENTATION

Dr. Benjamin uses silicone and saline implants in breast augmentation procedures for added volume and shape of the breast.

TUMMY TUCK

Weight fluctuation, child bearing and the aging process can reduce the ability for the skin to spring back and support the underlying muscles and fat. A Tummy Tuck can help restore the appearance of a more youthful appearing shape.
