Jordan Kasedy presents HAWK XO’s Exclusive birthday Bash Sponsored by Remy Martin

Given her outstanding reputation the industry having done some of the biggest festivals in Canada, it came to no surprise when we found out that she would be handling the very exclusive birthday party of XO The Weeknd’s Manager HAWK.

Word on the street was that it was early impossible to get into this exclusive event. Due to his high profile, security was buckled down and only A-listers were invited.

We, however, were lucky enough to get permission to snag a few pics at this exclusive event. ( photos attached )

From private events to world-famous festivals, Jordan is quite the Event producer to keep your eyes on.

If something big is happening, you can guarantee Jordan Kasedy has something to do with it.
