Unique Touch Events is truly a blend of exceptional talent. This collaboration began back in 2004. Two very special couples decided to combine their resources to create a company to make their dreams come true by helping people create memories from their milestones. They created Unique Touch Events Center, a venue to celebrate your memories and milestones!
Two sisters, Maria “Cookie” Carty Lewis and Ginina “Gina” Carty Muhammad who follow many generations of women in Business, Fashion, and Social Etiquette, that hail from New York City. They bring their training, education and passion for adding just the right amount of personalized touch to every event.
The Backbone of the company hails from two very unique individuals that complete these two Powerhouse couples. Derrick Lewis and Tadar Muhammad. These gentlemen bring you their understanding the complexity of generations of Central Floridians, music, spokesmanship, logistics and executive business management. Derrick a native Central Floridian and Tadar a natural spokesman from Chicago, Il.
