Meet Angela Crockett, Atlantic City's First Lady of Event Planning & VIP Hospitality

Whether it involves a sporting event, stage, or screen, Angela Crockett has worked with athletes, actresses, and actors. Meeting the talented and highly respected professional who trail-blazed her career to become affectionately known as 'Atlantic City's First Lady of Event Planning & VIP Hospitality, Angela's moxie is a force to be reckoned with.

For the past six years, she has steadfastly served as the Communications Director and Honoree Liaison for the prestigious Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame. With more than 27 million visitors annually to the ocean resort, sporting events and boxing draws significant crowds, especially from the tri-state areas – New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. This highly anticipated event is a magnet for well-known television celebrities, boxing champions, Dignitaries, and VIPs, including Mayor Marty Small, Sr., Mayor Judy Ward, Victor Manuelle, Chuck Zito (HBO's Oz and Sons of Anarchy), Roxanne Shante (Hip Hop Legend and Rapper), Leon (Above the Rim, The Five Heartbeats), Syndicated Radio Host, TV Contributor, and Author Flo Anthony, Sonny Hill (former pro basketball player and announcer), Larry Hazzard, Sr., Michael Olajide, Al Bernstein, Don King, Riddick Bowe, Bernard Hopkins, Irish Micky Ward, Felix Tito Trinidad, Michael Spinks, Vinny Paz, Evander Holyfield, Roberto Duran, Roy Jones, Jr., Iran Barkley, and Tim Witherspoon to name a few. Garnering this caliber of celebrity is not an easy task.

Still, Angela firmly believes that offering guests a great experience and an evening full of surprises keeps this event a hot ticket each year. Angela is a consummate professional at home walking the red carpet, the path to a boxing ring or center court. She prides herself on providing the complete package – planning, following through, attention to detail, and dedication to her clients to ensure everything runs smoothly with a top-notch experience. Perhaps this is why Penn University Professor Dr. Walt Palmer refers to Angela as "The Quiet Storm" with an esprit de force, "Sizzling with Substance, Powered by Purpose and Unparalleled Inspiration." Angela cares deeply about protecting and promoting the brands and celebrities she represents or for an event she produces. She borrows this astute advice from Epicharmus, "The wise man must be wise before, not after, the event."

Angela's passion drives her to lead by example. A Philadelphia native and Southern New Jersey resident, she maintains unwavering support and fondness for Atlantic City. She knows that her passion for pushing her professional boundaries is something that she strives to surpass and set an example for the youth in her community. Her goal is to serve as a role model for the Atlantic City area and abroad.
