Beverly Hills, California, July 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

(Beverly Hills, CA July 11th, 2017) GBK Productions, known as the “Gift Bag King” amongst their celebrity clientele, hosted their 5th annual gifting lounge in honor of the 25th ESPYS Awards hosted by Peyton Manning.  The event took place on the sunny rooftop of the Luxe Hotel, overlooking Rodeo Drive. The lounge was filled with an array of brands for the athletes, including diamonds, travel, health and fashion. The celebrities spent the day sipping hand-crafted cocktails, tasting catered creations, listening to live music and being introduced to the hottest brands on the market.

Athletes were greeted by the Dr. John’s Hemp Oil team, who were excited to share the benefits of their new Organic Oil, which is proven to be an effective remedy for pain and brain injuries sustained in athletic play. Many were excited to try the product. Athletes were also gifted Bio Minerals, supplements which improve the condition of connective tissue, keeping players in top condition.

Cali’Flour Foods also had the players best health interests at heart, sampling their delicious cauliflower crust pizzas (with only 180 calories in the entire crust) and gifting a year supply to each guest. Crater Lakes Spirits, one of the oldest and most awarded craft spirits producers in the US, were making crisp Moscow Mules and specialty cocktails with their Juniper Infused Gin and Pepper Vodka.

Chef Brian Appiano of Rib Line, the Central Coast’s most award-winning restaurant, created a BBQ on the terrace with barbequed oysters, ribs, and ceviche, to give a taste of what to expect at the Five Course Winemaker’s Dinner that the celebrities were given, which paired nicely with the 4 Copas Tequila tasting. In between catering options, guests stayed hydrated with HINT Water and snacked on Quest Nutrition Bars.

Athletes filled their bags with items including handmade hats from American Hat Makers, custom beaded jewelry from BOPULENT, men’s skincare from LQD, goodies from RICOS, the originator of concession nacho cheese, and Body Boost Men’s Stretch Mark Butter to keep skin toned and mark free. The bags also included gift certificates from Dr. Liza of the[fix] Chiropractic for mobile myofascial treatments, Titus Motion Therapy for three home therapy sessions, and Cryo Zone for whole body Cryotherapy and Cryofacial treatments.

Zumer Sport had an item for every sports fanatic, as they make innovative and creative products out of actual sports ball materials such as football, basketball, soccer and tennis balls. Zumer Sport’s materials were also used for the customized GBK Press Wall, using all four materials to tie in the sports theme seamlessly.

DJ KK, Professional Surfer Keala Kennelly, kept the vibe magnetic throughout the day, and ROAR Records was on site with Equestrian, Jessica Phoenix and Country Singer, Elyse Saunders, who delighted the crowd by performing her new song inspired by Phoenix, “RISE”, twice during the lounge.

Attendees loved learning about FOCUS Youth Center, which is an organization that provides a safe, multi-cultural space in under deserved populations where children of all ages and their parents have the opportunity to learn, gain focus and thrive, and many decided to play in their first Annual Poker Tournament to benefit the cause.

The guests finished their Pre-ESPYS experience in style, with a tasting from Louis Latour Winery, styling by Crown of Light diamonds, and a travel voucher for up to five days from the luxurious Sailrock Resort, a part of Sailrock South Caicos, an untouched land that offers tranquility, adventure and discovery.
