A remarkable Celebrity Oscar Suite & Party – Kathy Duliakas‘ 5th Annual Celebrity Oscar Suite & Party Benefiting the KIND Campaign was an event to remember. My hat goes off to Kathy Duliakas. Wow! What a massive undertaking to produce this incredible event and it was quite obvious from the start that this event was created and produced from the heart.
The Taglyan Complex in Hollywood is a prime and perfect event location that has everything to offer; from their awesome grand ballroom, beautiful garden oasis, food catering (Taglyan’s own Divine Food and Catering created some amazing eats!) and plenty of parking to mention a few. Thanks to Parris Harris, I have been lucky to be a part of several amazing Fashion Shows that he has produced there.
Most importantly, I was very happy to find out this event benifited the KIND Campaign. The Founders Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson were on hand to spread awareness about girl-against-girl “crime” and to support their efforts to launch KIND KITS this fall. Many Celebrities filmed PSA’s against bullying before they entered the gifting suite.
Anti-Bullying is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. Bullying is unacceptable and I am glad it is getting the attention that it deserves.
I was very honored to be a part of this event and the Social Media / Twitter Lounge. Together along with a group of Social Media Influencers; Lori Moreno, Dana Waldie, Holly Follis, Evangelina Rexes, we rocked the hashtag #SweeetSwag and created a ton of buzz across all forms of social media. It truly was an interactive experience and people from all over the world had the opportunity to join in on the fun, conversation and ask celebrities questions in real time.
