GBK Honored 2015 ESPY Awards’ Nominees and Presenters with Exclusive Gift Lounge & Celebrity Poker Tournament
In honor of the 2015 ESPY Awards, Gavin Keilly’s GBK Productions hosted its annual Pre-ESPY Awards gift lounge and celebrity poker tournament at the Andaz Hotel in Los Angeles on July 13, where sports personalities including Jalen Rose, Kenny Lofton, Festus Ezeli , David Lee, Andy Dalton, Shawne Merriman, Merril Hoge and Justin Pugh, got pampered with a variety of sports-related gifts and luxury items including vacations, jewelry, fashion, electronics and more.
At the suite, presenting sponsor ZIRH Men’s Skincare handed out their grooming products such as shave cream and gel. Meanwhile, the upscale Barber Lounge provided on-site services for male attendees along with store products.
Guests loved Copper Tough Compression sleeves for ankles, elbows and calves. The sleeves provide support, improve circulation, wick away sweat and reduce recovery time of muscles. Ferocious Nutrition gifted their “Superhuman Muscle Stack” dietary supplements containing natural testosterone and HGH Booster, while Woodzee gifted hand crafted wooden sunglasses.
Attendees got to choose between custom made official team jackets from MLB, NBA, NHL or NASCAR from license apparel company JH Design Group. They also received gift cards for a year’s worth of free sandwiches from Ike’s Place along with a skip-the-line pass valid at all their California stores.
Other goodies included Plaque HD toothpaste, lifestyle bags from custom bag company Vessel and a $2500 gift certificate towards a Health Mate Infrared Sauna. Meanwhile, Caribbean Living Magazine gifted stays at resorts in Mexico and Jamaica.
The MyIntent Project gifted handcrafted bracelets and necklaces with an “intent” word of the celebrity’s choice engraved on the bauble so when worn, it serves as a daily reminder to heed to its intent.
GBK brings in high quality products to its exclusive gifting lounges while also incorporating non-profit organizations to provide them exposure to celebrities to bring awareness to various causes. The daytime gift lounge benefited KIDS in the GAME, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Inc., Model Citizen Fund and Falcons Youth and Family Services.
The event concluded with a charity-driven poker tournament where guests were encouraged to try their luck in a poker tournament. The charity poker tournament included players such as Mekhi Phifer, Roger Cross, Shawn Toub and Dan Fleyshman, who raised $6000 for charity group Falcons Youth and Family Services.
