Gift suites are a way for companies to show off their product and, even better, have a chance for a celebrity to use their product and spread the word to consumers. Lately, Gift Suites have been going ”Green” but what does this mean? Well it doesn’t mean the color, it means doing what is necessary that will not harm the earth. So if a product says that they are “Green,” they are using the resources that are friendly to Mamma Earth.
Presented by Debbie Durkin and Durkin Entertainment, the Main Event Red Carpet Lounge & Green Suite, sponsored by media partner LA Confidential Magazine, took place at the 9900 Club in Beverly Hills in honor of the Oscar nominees and the Independent Spirit Award winners. The lounge included some of today’s top brands, spa services, beauty products, and one-of-a-kind jewelers.
The Main Event Red Carpet Lounge & Green Suite, sponsored by LA Confidential Magazine, featured all things sustainable and GREEN: Health and wellness; beauty; fashion; jewelry; watches; healthy/organic vegan foods; spirits bar and animal-related products and services.
To help raise funds and awareness for spcaLA (Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), the lounge featured a Wire Image Celebrity Portraiture Studio for "Stars and their Pets" hosted by celebrity photographer, Michael Bezjian. All supplies were provided.
Celebrity Pet Portraits and Celebrity Pet Bowls will be auctioned on e-Bay after the event to benefit spcaLA.

It's nice to know that more companies are going "Green" and are taking care of the world. If you want to go “Green,” you don’t need a business, you can help by recycling, taking mass transit or using products that don’t harm the globe. "Green" is a good thing!
