Debbie Durkin’s annual ECOLUXE ‘Drive-Thru’ Endless Summer Festival in Celebration of The TV Awards

These past few months we all had to pivot on a dime, not knowing what each day will bring. So many events have been cancelled or postponed with no alternate date in sight.  The world of entertainment is slowly coming back around including the kickoff off of awards season.  It’s that time when gifting lounges send out their coveted invitations.  

Durkin Entertainment has stepped into the pilot’s seat presenting a groundbreaking and safe way to enjoy the lounges with a “Drive-Thru” concept for celebrities to meet new entrepreneurs to showcase the latest trends in lifestyle goods.  The Beverly Hilton Hotel reserved it’s valet area to host the 14th annual EcoLuxe event in partnership with Lysol.  The event was in celebration of the TV awards and in honor the California Firefighters who are bravely battling the blazes across our beloved state.   The following sponsors gave so generously at tables setup along the cul de sac, while practicing safety measures and proper social distancing. Here are some of our favorite vendors that made this day a success!

Meraki Allure– Founder & CEO, Mo Cisse, decided in 2015 to put everything on the line and turn his passion into a brand.  He is on a mission to provide his clients with top of the line clothing and personal image consulting to make sure your special event is perfect, right down to the details of a cufflink. His core values include quality, commitment, courage and diversity.  His vision is clear and can be seen in his meticulous designs.

Mó Eyewear– There is literally a pair of spectacles for anyone with Mó!  The versatility and uniqueness of their frames set them apart from any competition.  They specialize in both prescription and sunglasses for men, women, and children.  They carry over a thousand models with exclusive designs and durability at affordable pricing for all.

Koz Water is demanding a cleaner Earth one aluminum can at a time.  Utilizing a 12 step process that includes dual reverse osmosis, active pH balancing, and ozone sterilization, this purified water is packaged in recyclable cans to combat the single use plastic bottles that are filling up our landfills and destroying the planet. So fresh, so clean!

John Paul Pet is bringing eco-friendly, cruelty free grooming products that have been tested on humans, but pH balanced for pets!  John Paul Mitchell has always been an advocate for our furry friends by being the first professional beauty corporation to announce in 1980 that they would not conduct or endorse animal testing.  The Lavender Mint detangling spray soothes, calms, and hydrates our beloved pups and kitties. It’s ok if you get a little on yourself. It’s good for you, too.

The Beverly Hilton Hotel Brunch is an experience that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime.  With the pandemic halting in house dining experiences, the hotel wanted to make sure guests were able to get some pleasurable treats to-go.  The Box contains a pasta kit, fine cheese and bread, sahale snacks, and a personal sized bottle of Taittinger champagne, which for me is the perfect chef’s kiss to the meal!

Celebrity guest attendees included Shar Jackson, Farrah Abraham and daughter Sophia Abraham, Selling Sunset stars Amanza Smith and Mary Fitzgerald, RuPaul’s Drag Race star “6″ and more!
