I really had a good time. This was a really cool lounge, with some really funky stuff
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) May 6, 2010
GBK (gbkproductions.com), the luxury lifestyle gift lounge and special events company, partnered with The Ann & George Lopez Foundation to thank the gracious supporters and competitors in the George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic held on May 3rd 2010, with an exclusive “Thank You Lounge.”
Healthytrim.com, presenting sponsor of the gift lounge and provider of their nutritional supplements that contain reservatrol, hoodia and green tea (all clinically proven to aid in weight loss, increase energy, decrease appetite and provide great health benefits), also hosted the Long Drive Competition. They donated $5,000 for every celebrity that beat the founder - Matthew Dwyer, who was 17-0 until Pro Golfer Rocco just barely beat him. With a few other winners, Healthytrim.com was pleased make a donation of $20,000.
This year’s golf classic pulled out all the stops, including a first class Thank You Lounge featuring an array of exclusive gifts and luxury products. Celebrity supporters such as Samuel L. Jackson, Oscar De La Hoya, Tim Allen, Benjamin Bratt, Tim Allen, Rosanna Arquette, Dennis Quaid, Bill Bellamy, and more discovered new products they quickly fell in love with, or stocked up on items they can’t live without! Already the owner of 2 units, George Lopez made a bee-line to pick up another Powermat, the revolutionary wireless charging device that allows users to wirelessly charge multiple devices simultaneously. Samuel L. Jackson became an instant fan of the custom-made bullet pendant necklaces from Bullets 4 Peace, unique jewelry made from recycled bullet castings taken off the streets, war zones and other troubled areas in order to raise money and awareness for various charities, and was even spotted wearing the necklace on The Ellen Show the following day. Johnny Rockets, quickly becoming a celebrity hot spot, was visited by all of the lounge attendees where they picked up their VIP Johnny Rockets Card entitling them to a year of complimentary dining at any Johnny Rockets restaurant.
To enhance the golf-themed lounge, there was an array of golf games and products including Big Birdie Golf, the new full swing yard golf game; Golfsmith – a specialty retailer of golf and tennis equipment, apparel and accessories; and Fila Golf – men’s and women’s golf. Other great gifts included Revitalash - eyelash condition which grows and strengthens eyelashes, and Hair by Revitalash - which helps to grow thicker fuller hair; certificates from Wahanda.com, the Global Wellness Market Place, to visit one of the luxurious spas found on their site; Milena's Candles; 3LAB – high end skincare; Lalo Fitness; Sanuk – men’s and women’s footwear; The Slanket – The Original Blanket with Sleeves; Largus Inc – high end iPhone accessories; Shibue Couture Inc; Organic Pastures Dairy - Kombucha living tea and home delivery gift certificate; IndulgentEscapes.com – gifting a luxury vacation to one of their many top resorts; Black Cat Vineyard – gifting a bottle of their fine Black Cat Vineyard 2007 Estate Syrah & an invitation for a private tasting; Finally, celebrities loved Counsil By JH Design Group, gifting from their new men’s premium brand including high end jackets, thermals, and v necks.
Everyone had a great time while showing support for the foundation, and later celebrities including Cedric the Entertainer were overheard saying “I really had a good time. This was a really cool lounge, with some really funky stuff”.
