Gavin Keilly’s GBK Productions is the # 1 luxury gift lounge during awards season with top tier talent and products. But it’s also our favorite place to meet entrepreneurs from around the country, and they get to meet celebrities who try their products and give them a lift.So buckle up, because for the Emmys this year, GBK outdid itself.
Keilly also has made sure for the last almost 20 years that there is a charitable aspect and GBK has raised over $5,000,000 for various causes. GBK partnered with Rachel Brosnahan — Mrs. Maisel — herself for the recent GBK’s Production and Wen Hair Care’s Exclusive Luxury Gifting for a meet and greet auction that benefited Covenant House. The swanky Beverly Wilshire hotel was the site of the event.
Highlights were the Burke Williams Spa which are the go-to destination spots for Hollywood’s VIPS, every celeb that came by smartly stopped in at Burke Williams. Rufus Sewell was seen oohing and ahing there. The wonderful actor Glynn Turman loved Spryng, which is an untethered, portable pneumatic active compression wraps that helps relieve tired and achy legs, everyone in Hollywood should buy this for their constant LA to NY and back trips. “Agents of Shield” star Ming Na Wen checked them out. (Also, we gave them to a friend with Parkinson’s later, and they loved this product. Highly recommended!)
Another fave spot of the celebs? KhiTM luxury bath tissue. The nicest ladies from Wisconsin and the dreamiest toilet paper who could resist as Evan Handler cheekily noted.
Other fun stuff was Hugaroo Weighted Blankets and wraps where the weary celebs and VIPS had a welcome respite, WEN Hair & Body care, Chaz Dean is a philanthropist who works with Project Angel Food and more, Al Capone Watches, Austere Wear Sunglasses, Tristar Cookware, Dermafirm Skin Care, Filienna and B Opulent, Food & Alcohol by Hestan Wines, Vitani Spirits, Butterfly Superfoods, Cocopotamus Truffles, Beauty Pulse and Aztec Secret and more. Guests sipped on Food and alcohol by Hestan Wines, Hertelendy Wines, Joe’s Coffee and Blue Farm Noir, Vitani Spirits and got gifted for Pacifique, the buzzed about La Cienega restaurant.
True Tailor shirts, True Life bras and Booty Sprout, Home and House items by Athenaromas and Simple Modern, Just Food For Dogs, and to make sure your smile looks great, the lovely Catrise Austin Dentistry teeth whitening. The popular La Peer Hotel offered a stay as did Nashville Fit Farm, trips to Jamaica by S Hotel Montego Bay, Caribbean Living’s Peta Phipps is the expert on this, Turks and Caicos by Sailrock and Fiji by Raiwasa Fiji.
As Gavin smartly noted, “It was our pleasure to partner up with Rachel Brosnahan and Covenant House. It’s an amazing cause that offers abused and trafficked kids a way to get off the streets for good. We all need to do our part.”
