Away from the hustle of Los Angeles, within a beautifully sun-lit Japanese garden, more than 100 of Hollywood’s finest came out to Gonpachi of Beverly Hills, as it hosted the “Endless Summer” Primetime Emmy Suite and Party, on Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011
This second annual event, produced by Doris Bergman and Kathy Duliakas, set off Emmy week by offering an incredible array of fashion, skin care and electronics for television industry actors and VIP’s. Stars seen strolling around the dining room for swag and indulging on fine Asian cuisine included, Andrea Gabriel (Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn), William Shatner, ‘Bachelor Pad’ couple Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, Eric Roberts, Tamala Jones (Castle), and Rex Lee of ‘Entourage’ – among others – taking in the best of what the “Endless Summer” had to offer.
“I had a blast,” said Deb Prost, showcasing Cool Off, a natural and long lasting, personal cooling towelette. “We received rave reviews with many coming back a second time to mention how much they loved the product.” While Kyle Massey is already a fan, having begun using the quick chill product while competing last season on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ Primetime Emmy nominee – Dot Marie Jones picked some up for when she is shooting the “terribly hot” football scenes on ‘Glee.’
In an effort to balance out the day’s free consumption, guests donated school supplies, backpacks and money to the "I Have a Dream" Foundation - Los Angeles, which provides academic, social and cultural enrichment services to under-served youth and their families.
“The event was wonderful. We met so many great people,” said Kendall Cullwell of luxury skin care line, Stemulation. “Everybody was very gracious and it was really fun to talk to the group.”
