GBK hosted ‘A Vintage Beach Chic Pool Party & Barbeque’ and Gift Suite, honoring the 2009 MTV Movie Award nominees and presenters at an elegant private Hollywood Estate. GBK is a luxury lifestyle gift lounge and special events company that hosts spectacular events all year long. GBK was the recipient of BizBash’s 2006 Award for Emmy’s “Best Gift Bag.”
While Hollywood glitz and glamour is a big part of all gift lounges, giving back is always a part of GBK events, and they consistently sponsor meaningful charities. This event was no exception. The Ashe Foundation was the charity they sponsored this time and it’s a beautiful group. By giving them your lightly used shoes and clothes they can dress girls in Africa who have nothing. It’s such a kind organization. Their motto is: “give your slightly worn clothes & shoes & change the world 2 feet at a time.“
After the elite group of invited celebrities, VIPs, and Media arrived at the valet, Volkswagen escorted guests to the party in their brand new 4 door luxury coupe - The CC.
The magnificent view, and cheerful ambience added to the fun as we joined the Beach Chic Pool Party and BBQ. Guests lounged by the pool, listened to special performances by recording artist Samantha Mollen, rocked out to the beats of DJ Casey Connor and DJ Kiddkit and got spoiled in GBK’s MTV Movie Awards Themed Gift Lounge.
