Acknowledge by their star-studded celebrity events, GBK Productions celebrated the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards with a Luxury Gift Lounge sponsored by Michael Todd Organics, honoring the Nominees and Presenters. Held at L’Ermitage Hotel Beverly Hills on August 22nd and 23rd, GBK invited celebrity and media guests to two full days of gifting in honor of the big day.
Upon arriving at the swanky hotel, celebs were greeted with a handler to assist them through the lounge. Snapshots with the press was the first stop, then it was time to enjoy new products, sweet refreshments and cool music by DJ Morgan Hildebrand. The ambiance was trendy, chic and fun!
In the spirit of giving back, the GBK lounge included the opportunity to raise awareness and funding for worthy causes of local charities. The GO Campaign was held inside the four room lounge to speak on their mission to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children around the world. Cops 4 Causes passed out tote bags with literature on their philanthropic efforts of Law Enforcement.
Environmental Media Association spoke on their dedication to harnessing the power of the entertainment industry and the media to educate the global public on environmental issues. In the outside terrace area, Mutt Match LA K9 Rescue Ranch & Sanctuary showed their puppy treats along with an adorable puppy of their own, talking about their all-breed rescue that rescues neglected and discarded dogs from LA’s high kill shelters to rehabilitate and place in loving homes.
Star Power helped celebrities inside their ‘Money Booth’ and gave them 20 seconds to grab as much money as they could to donate to a charity of their choice—so cool!
