For over ten years, Debbie Durkin has proudly hosted award nominees, directors, producers, screenwriters, VIP talent, and more with a luxury ‘Walk-Thru’ party gifting event with countless sponsors. This outdoor spring affair at The Beverly Hilton Hotel allowed guests to mingle over a scrumptious buffet lunch, clink gold shimmery champagne toasts, and even adopt a pet on-site thanks to Wagmor Pets, a non-profit dog rescue based in Studio City. Right next to the cutie puppies, Healthy Paws Herbal Labs showed off their numerous holistic formula products to help dog ailments and provide wellness solutions for pets’ health from within.
Prince Caviar amped our morning with a spoonful of premium caviar as he promoted his garden hotel A Place in The Sun Hotel Palm Springs originally built in the early 1950′s as a retreat for the cast and crew of the film classic “A Place in the Sun” starring Elizabeth Taylor, Montgomery Clift, and Shelley Winters. DENA BURTON Collections showed off glittery gowns and offered gift certificates to her Dena Burton Capsule Collection consisting of luxury dresses and home goods products like fluffy edgy-styled pillows to enhance any home.
After indulging in caviar we not only sipped champagne donned in gold glitter but picked up a bottle of bubbly in a custom-designed art bottle to take home that read Raised in LA on one side, then Better than Sex on the other. “Better Than Sex,” a Dessert Restaurant offered attendees a free dessert gift card to their Melrose location. The team behind Raised in LA Artwork‘s hand-painted champagne bottles also gave out one-of-a-kind art pieces with an “Oscar” handout stencil and T-shirts.
Their posters on display were raffled to lucky guests (from previous art installations adorning the city in front of Paramount Studios) and incorporated The Godfather, Marlon Brando, and The Ricardos all in homage to Being the Ricardos and the new series The Offer (from The Godfather).
For those looking for some spiritual, healing-based clarity and entrepreneurial guidance, the psychic medium Louise Jones LA Confidant was on hand to give her sessions of excellence.
Other brands sharing their products included RevealU Skincare gifting REVIVE o3 Activator kits – their newest innovative skincare tool for the ultimate whole body wellness experience while also showing off their professional line of gel products, such as a Gold Skin Care Kit, a Gold CBD Skin Care Kit, and a Rejuve Skin Care Kit. For those looking for dental solutions like teeth whitening or veneers in LaLaLand, Dr. Tyler Hales from Hales Parker Dentistry in Orange County gave on-site mini consultations and gifted attendees teeth whitening gift certificates, and travel toothpaste, toothbrushes, and floss while celebrities received a gift certificate for veneers.
Guests may have gone home with some fun goodies, or even adopted a pet, but the energy proved that everyone was just happy to be out socializing once again after a long pandemic hiatus.
