Last Friday, the LA Models Runway division (my awesome team!) hosted a 'surprise' Fundraiser event for a dear friend and client that is close to the heart of many. Our special guest, Greg Collard, faced a severe life threatening infection late last year that required devastating measures to be taken in attempt to save his life. His strong spirit, courage and determination have led him down the road to recovery, and inspired those closest to him to come together in a show of support....
Graciously held at the infamous 'party mansion' on Electra Court (home of our lovely friend and model/actress Erin Guzoski-Alanian) this candlelit soiree was definitely a night to remember.....close friends, laughter, incredible city views, fashion, specialty cocktails, delicious hors d'oeuvres, live music ~pianist/singer followed by ambient DJ sets, photo booth opps for fun and a cupcake bar!!
Our runway team (along with a couple of other helpful hands) pulled together in excitement/slight panic mode to make this special event happen with less than 2 weeks to plan! (special thanks to Malibu Red, Veev vodka, The Agency Arizona, Compound Ent, Resource Water, and Cupcake Stiletto!) Witnessing this anticipated evening come to fruition and the huge smile on Greg's face throughout the night was well worth all of our work!
AND, to top the night off, we welcomed an unexpected guest....Twilight star Rob Pattinson! (who's presence/photograph below put our party on all of the Hollywood gossip sites such as E-Online, Hollywoodlife, IMDB, Celebspin etc -- strange how quick word travels over such things as "Rob Pattinson Parties with Models in Hollywood" read story HERE!).
None the less...
Thanks Robert for bringing press to LA Models Runway and Greg Collard himself :)
