A highlight of the lounge was watching the celebrities participate in a red carpet “litter toss” hosted by NEW Tidy Cats® LightWeight 24/7 Performance®. For every jug of Tidy Cats LightWeight 24/7 Performance litter tossed, Tidy Cats donated $100 to the spcaLA, with a total donation reaching $10,000. Tidy Cats® LightWeight 24/7 Performance® is a revolutionary new product that solves a pet peeve cat owners have been dealing with for a long time… heavy cat litter. This new product offers the strength and performance you expect from traditional scooping cat litter, but at half the weight; making it easy to carry, pour and store – as each jug is at least 50 percent lighter than traditional scooping litters.

Some of the luxury gifts included jewelry from Helzberg Diamonds who was onsite gifting their exclusive INFINITY X INFINITY jewelry collection inspired by ABC Television’s primetime hit series “Revenge”; flat irons from Barbar Hair Tools; multifunctional scarves from HEADWARE; nail design from imPRESS Press On Manicure by Broadway Nails; stone and pearl jewelry from Sb Collections; a selection of handcrafted gifts from THE ARTISAN GROUP®; gift certificates for infrared sauna sessions from THE SWEAT SHOP LA; luxurious shapewear by TC Intimates; gift cards and hair extensions from Pelo Hair, Los Angeles; premium positioning on http://www.WallOfCare.com and 10 years .ECO trademark artist name licensing from Planet.ECO; online subscriptions for mail-order goody bags for dogs from BarkBox; designer carmel apples from apple-revolution.com; lifetime memberships to daily meal plan and exercise program from No Think Diet; custom hats from Gratitude Couture; and t-shirts from ChildSupport, a cause-driven company all about style with a purpose striving to make a difference in the lives of children living in desperate situations.

Always a great addition to any luxury lounge, the event featured many great destinations including The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort, offering Deluxe Overwater Villas with breakfast and discounts at the Miri Miri Spa by Clarins; The St. Regis Aspen Resort, featuring luxury accommodations and complimentary lift ticket; and Palace Resorts and Caribbean Living, gifting an all-inclusive resort stay at Grand Moon Palace at Palace Resorts.
