FEATURING A FUN AND FRESH CELEBRITY RETREAT FILLED WITH AN ARRAY OF FASHION-FORWARD, CAUSE-DRIVEN AND TREND-SETTING PRODUCTS
On Purpose Magazine is proud to cover this event to get great celebrity interviews and to showcase the great causes and even some of the wonderful innovative products. On Purpose Magazine always loves these events because, not only does GBK do such a wonderful job spotlighting some great charity causes, but many of the vendors also promote the charities they support. Also since GBK has been voted “Best Gift Bag”, you are sure to see some great stuff. – JW
This year the gifting suites and celebrity retreat will take place on June 1st and 2nd at the L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills from 11am – 6pm. GBK, the recipient of multiple BizBash’s Award for “Best Gift Bag,” will offer its exclusive list of invited celebrities, VIPs, and media an opportunity to explore new products and enjoy a luxury environment.
This year’s lounge will be styled with the sleek and modern line of event furniture from Illuminated Industries, a leader in the illuminated furniture hire market.
As always, a focus remains on raising awareness for charitable causes. This year’s charity beneficiary is (RED)™ – a non-profit organization created by Bono and Bobby Shriver to unite iconic companies and consumer power in the fight against AIDS in Africa.
Since its inception in March 2006, sales from (RED) products and events have generated over $190 million for the Global Fund to invest in African AIDS programs.
(RED) funds are focused on fighting AIDS through the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2015.
Every day 1,000 babies are born with HIV, but by 2105 that number could be virtually zero.
Known for their innovative events filled with trend-setting luxury brands, GBK will feature a variety of products and services including ground-breaking technology such as 3 dimensional printer Cubify. Cubify is an interactive 3D printing experience where everyday products like designer shoes, iphone cases, gadgets, and jewelry come to life as pieces are printed on Cube 3D printers. Guests will receive custom-designed, exclusive Fresh Fiber iphone cases and Freedom of Creation ipod nano bracelets with an opportunity to receive an @home 3D Cube printer!
