EcoLuxe Lounge drive-thru boosts spirits during uncertain times

Debbie Durkin does it again, but this time her 15th Annual EcoLuxe Awards Season Luxury Gifting Lounge on April 23 at the Beverly Hilton was a different kind of experience – drive-thru style – where guests stopped along the way to learn about new products and services. 

Gilles Marini and his beautiful wife Carole arrived in style to Debbie Durkin’s EcoLuxe “Drive Thru” Luxury Experience in celebration of Awards Season, sponsored by FloafersRevealU and Mó Eyewear at The Beverly Hilton on Friday in LA. The event also benefitted local non-profit Wagmor Pets, a dog rescue in Studio City that is currently looking to save over a dozen French Bulldogs from the meat market in China.

To celebrate the 2021 Awards Season nominees in film, guests took home boxes from the Beverly Hilton chef team overflowing with cheeses and crackers, pasta and sauce, plus more snacks, along with Taittinger Champagne to indulge and pop the bubbly in the comfort of their own homes. Decadent neatly packed boxes of chocolate covered pretzels and strawberries shimmering in gold and sparkles were also on hand for guests to pick up thanks to a new small female-owned business called Liana Treat and Berry (@lees.treatz). We also were curious to try packets of immune-supporting crash-free Four Sigmatic Mushroom Ground Coffee that helps with focus.

Cars pulled up at the Beverly Hilton and stopped at various points to learn about cool new products such as Floafers, the cutest loafer-like shoes in fun stylish colors and designs that are perfect for the pool or beach. Ace Beaute showed off their ultra-pigmented eye shadow shades in one easy to carry palette with a wide range of colors to create your custom look. Mo Eyewear USA tantalized guests with a bevy of cool sunglasses. Named the best-selling bran in Spain, who doesn’t love a fiery pair of shades to make a statement in California? Guests soared off in some new sunnies.

RevealU Skincare made with mineral elements gave visitors packs of their chemical-free body gel moisturizer – some with a gold sparkle spray and others including CBD. Dog owners scored John Paul Pet Products while the event supported Wagmore Pets, so of course, adorable pups were on site ready to be adopted.

After months of pandemic reclusiveness, the event felt like a big pick-me up as the drive-thru offered hope of better days to come and the promise of events in the future. Thank you to everyone involved for lifting our spirits.
