Exclusive: CelebSecrets4U Checks Out GBK Productions’ Pre-ESPY Lounge in Hollywood! @GBK_Productions

IMG_0686Hey CelebSecrets4U readers, yesterday we got to check out the GBK Pre-ESPY Awards Lounge, celebrating the ESPY nominees and presenters.  The lounge, held at the Andaz Hotel in Hollywood, featured numerous luxury vendors and charitable organizations for the attendees to sample and learn about. It also hosted DJ BABYCHINO, the world’s youngest DJ. Celebrities in attendance included the cast of VH1’s “Hit the Floor,” 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Jordyn Wieber, and a host of football and basketball stars.

We had the chance to browse the wide array of products being given away, including Wild Soul Sunglasses, named after wild animals, the proceeds of which go to a charity of the buyer’s choice, Bands For Arms, bracelets made from old, donated military uniforms and made by service members, Jason of Beverly Hills, giving out $700 gift cards toward their one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, and Bare Snacks, making healthy and delicious baked apple chip snacks.

The charities in attendance included the Los Angeles Lakers Fund, which funds disaster relief in CA, The Giving Back Fund, which provides philanthropic consulting and services to individuals and corporations, Mama Sarah Obama Foundation, which seeks to improve the education and welfare of disenfranchised children, and the Model Citizen Fund, which gives life-sustaining backpacks to the homeless and disaster victims.
