Inspiration Awards-Beverly Hills
The Inspiration Awards was a fabulous event held at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel (where Pretty Woman was filmed.) This years VIP honorees were Marcia Cross (AKA: Bree from Desperate Housewives), Lisa Ling (Journalist) & Lauren Zalanick (President of NBC Universal Women and Lifestyle Entertainment-Bravo & Lifestyle networks.) There was an array of celebs at the event (Larry King, Tori Spelling & Aisha Tyler to name a few) who came out in full force in support of Step Ups efforts and in support of the various sponsors to raise money for their fantastic philanthropic programs for underprivileged girls & for the fight for Cervical Cancer in Woman.
The events message was Motivation, Girl power and Inspiration! Congrats to the honorees! The Swag Bags were just as fab with sponsors like The Container Store, Dermalogica, LoLLIA, ARCADE, Fellice Keller Productions, bhps-Cosmetic Surgery Center & Tibetan Sparkling Tea. My favorite product in the swag bag was the keepsake logoed USB from Fellice Keller Productions that had a complementary movie downloaded on it. I plan to wipe out the movie and reuse the USB all the time, great mileage piece! I encourage you to do your part and help support these causes, "every penny helps!"
