Dana Marie Roquemore is a social entrepreneur who went from being a stylist for fashion shows, personal wardrobe consultant, and event planner to being the creator of an innovative community concept that took Orlando, FL, by storm.
In 2014, Dana created The Dinner Party Project, a food-focused social experiment that invites eight strangers to share incredible food, interesting conversations, and fantastic company. This original concept has grown to Private Custom Dinners, Corporate Gatherings and Women’s Leadership Events.
She uses guest chefs to create amazing food, but the real richness is in the connections that happen during these dinners. Her vision of gathering the community has also expanded to large-scale Dinner Parties (up to 200 Guests) Private Events, and Custom Branded Events!
