In celebration of the 2006 Academy Awards and their accompanying parties, The Silver Spoon Hollywood Buffet presented a 2-day long event offering an enticing array of the newest fashions, beauty products and services, and delectable cuisine. Luxury brands were displayed in a buffet-style setting with a royal theme. 'We gave our guests the Royal Treatment to prep them for the biggest party weekend of the year in Hollywood. By creating a Magic Kingdom of luxuries, indulgences and Disney princesses, Silver Spoon was able to give everyone the experience of being king or queen for the day,' commented Lorena Bendinskas, Silver Spoon partner.
All Buffet attendees were asked to make a donation to The Alzheimer's Association. Its mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. For more than 20 years, the Alzheimer's Association has provided reliable information; created supportive programs and services for families; increased resources for dementia research; and influenced changes in public policy.
Silver Spoon co-founder Melissa Lemer added, 'I chose to raise money to try to cure Alzheimer's disease in honor of a good family friend and great talent, the late producer Gordon Carroll. All of our guests will be asked to give a $20 donation to the non-profit organization at the door.'
Luxury brands were displayed in a buffet-style setting with a 'Royal Treatment' theme on Thursday, March 2nd and Friday, March 3rd. The male-focused event raised $6500 for the Alzheimer's Association in honor of Gordon Carroll.
