On Monday, May 1, 2017, golfers teed-off in Toluca Lake at The 10th Anniversary George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic and Doris Bergman’s “Gratitude Lounge”, benefiting The George Lopez Foundation.

It was fun fore all, with guests swinging on the golf course and swinging by the great gifts showcased in the Gratitude Lounge.  Upon arrival, celebrities and VIPs saw a beautiful sight – the 2017 Harley Davidson Road King! Sadly, it wasn’t being given away, but we did get a chance to sit on it and do a happy Harley pose. Guests were gifted with great shirts, thanks to Harley Davidson of Glendale.


Who's that hottie on the Harley?


One of my very favorite booths was Twisted Silver. C’mon, what gal doesn’t love jewelry? Debra Mitchell’s designs are fabuloso. You might not have been born with a silver spoon, but now you have a chance to wear a Twisted Silver spoon!  I loved this oh-so-special necklace with a flattened spoon at the end.

Merging jewelry with spirituality, My Saint, My Hero had sweet bracelets that wrap your wrists with love and prayer. Hey, it’s heavenly to have wearable blessings wherever you go.

The next time someone asks me if I have “baggage,” I’ll be thrilled to say “yes” – and it’s the best. Olympia Luggage had phenomenal-looking red or blue suitcases that will fit in the overhead bins when traveling by air.


Olympia carry-ons are colorful and cool!


There were other ways of getting high, too, only not in an airplane. Cannabis was featured at several booths – remember, it’s legal in California now! PerryWinkles Edibles offered honey nut cereal, gluten-less MAXIMUS rings. But don’t fill your breakfast bowl to the brim; they urged me to just try 5 rings at a time, since this medical marijuana-filled food can have you feeling good with just a tad. 


Periwinkles snacks and recipes, too


Culinary Cannabis and RIPS had marijuana-filled treats as well.

In Spirit Hemp Crème contains medical marijuana as CBD hemp oil to help alleviate pain topically. It’s used for arthritis, backache, and muscle tendon, and joint pain.

Another unique product for the skin was FaceCamp. Originally developed for burn patients, FaceCamp features activated niacinamide plus a synergistic spectrum of anti-aging ingredients to rebuild collagen and elastin, to heal blemishes, and to improve overall skin tone.

BuyWine.Com was one of the sponsors of the event. Their website is a wonderful source for learning about wines and the regions where they are made.  I tasted a blend of red wines that was delightful and will be sure to check their site to find out more fundamentals of wine that I can enjoy with friends and family.




Also in the spirit of the day, Spa Girl Vodka, offered delicious Spa Martinis with a hint of cucumber or Pear Martinis with a fruitier flavor.

Another sponsor was OM Audio, LLC that featured Inearpeace with its two-speaker system that makes listening to music a sacred experience.

While on the golf course, guests didn’t have to worry about their pets at home. Why not? Petzi Treat Cam offered the Petzi Wi-Fi Camera and Treat Dispenser that makes it easy to connect with your pet from anywhere – and even reward him with treats!  Wow, that is doggone meow-vel-ous!


Your pet will love Petzi!
