4/7/14 - Mickey Rooney took his final bow today, and he was giving interviews and being the great star he was until the last. I photographed him at the Roger Neal Oscar Celebrity Suite at the Luxe Hotel this year and was amazed at how animated he was, and how much I appreciate all he gave to the world of entertasinment. God bless you dear Mickey!

Before entering the gifting suite, celebrity guests dropped off brand new pajamas to Pajama Program. Founder Genevieve Piturro and L.A. Chapter President Lindsay Smith were on site to collect the new pajamas and tell guests about their exciting new "1 Million Good Nights" campaign to collect and distribute 1 MILLION new pajamas and new books to children in need by Dec. 31, 2015. To help them get closer to their goal, Carter's, America's leading brand of young children’s clothing, donated a brand new pair of pajamas to Pajama Program, for every celebrity who attended the event. In addition, Carter's agreed to donate, up to 1,000 new pairs of pajamas for children in need, for each and every social media post about the event, sponsors and/or charity, using hashtags #KathySuite and #1MGoodNights. "Were so grateful, along with Carter's, to partner with Kathy Duliakas' 6th Annual Celebrity Oscar Suite," said Piturro, "to help raise awareness for our "1 Million Good Nights" campaign and our goal to give one million children a good night by the end of 2015." Thanks to the celebrities’ call to action and their social media posts, the one-day event generated nearly 550 tweets and garnered over 5,100,000 timeline deliveries, which will result in some very deserving children given a brand new pair of pajamas. Thank you, Carter’s!

Duliakas was equally thrilled to partner with Carter's and Pajama Program for this worthwhile cause. "Around Award Season, we all get caught up in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but it's very important we remember there are those in need. It's heartwarming to see the overwhelming support that I've received from the celebrities who attended my event. With their powerful reach across all social media platforms -- we were successful in brightening the lives of many young children across the U.S."

Giving back seemed to be the theme of the day. Circuelle™, a sponsor at the event, was so inspired by Carter's pledge that they wanted to donate one mammogram to an underprivileged woman for each celebrity who stopped at their table. As a result, Circuelle™ is donating over 50 mammograms to the Conejo Free Clinic in Thousand Oaks, California.

The event featured brands such as Maleku Jewelry®, ZENSATION®, AriZona Beverages, Aroma Sense, BAM Bags®, Beverly Hills Cosmetic & Laser Center, Circuelle, CLIF® Bar, Divine Food & Catering, DreamSpa™, DropShades, Exhale, GOGA by Gordana, Hawaiian Springs®, Herban ®, International Citizen Design House®, ISO Beauty®, Kah® Tequila, Kama Sutra®, Karma Kollection LLC™, KRAVE®, KRPR Creative PR, Original Gourmet™ Lollipops, Mobigrip®, Perch™ By TII, Photo Booth Pro, Prêt à Porter Designs, Pretty Polly, Pretzel Crisps®, ShameOnJane®, Sheila Bella™, Single® by Galina Sobolev, Skinnygirl™ Sparklers, Skinnygirl™ Daily, The Orphaned Earring, Thorlos/Experia, Twisted Silver®, Vintage TeaWorks™, Wear Luck®, Yuki Sharoni Beauty & Lifestyle, Ze Chocolate Lady, and ZING Vodka.

The stars had plenty of rave reviews about Kathy Duliakas' 6th Annual Celebrity Oscar Suite & Party, as well as the important charity being benefited. "I'm having a really great time," says Kelsey Scott, of Oscar-Nominated film, 12 Years a Slave. "I found some amazing and eclectic things. This is what draws me to these suites; you find different and unique things." "I'm obsessed with toners," claims Jax Taylor, of Vanderpump Rules, "so anytime there's skin care at these suites, I grab as much as I can. I spritz face stuff on my face all the time. As men, as we get older, we got to take care of our face." "It's always very difficult to choose my favorite product because Kathy has truly the best vendors on the planet," declared True Blood's Carolyn Hennesy. "There's no suite like hers anywhere. Everything here is fabulous." Dancing with the Stars' Gleb Savchenko states, "I'm here with my family and they're really enjoying today. It's a lot of fun." Magic City's Patricia De León says, “Kathy Duliakas put on a first class event with lots of great vendors. I found a perfect dress for an upcoming awards show and lots of other great products.” “It was a really nice experience to meet everyone and hear about their products,” shared Brighton Sharbino, of True Detective and The Walking Dead. “Everyone was really nice.” Her sister Saxon Sharbino, who is starring in the upcoming Poltergeist film, had similar sentiments. “I loved the Kathy Duliakas suites environment. It was so cool to get to see other people in the business come together for the cause!” Jaclyn Betham, of The Haves and the Have Nots says, "We just took a photo at the PhotoBoothPro.com booth. That was really fun." "I'm so excited!" exclaimed Parenthood's Lyndon Smith. "This is such a gorgeous venue." Body of Proof's Nic Bishop remarked, "It’s always good to be here at Kathy's events. This is my 4th event I've attended, so she's not totally sick of me yet, which is good. I'm just been doing the rounds of all these great products." "It's incredible going to gifting suites like this because I get turned on to different products that I wouldn't have seen otherwise,” says actress Tia Carrere. "Prêt à Porter has beautiful stuff, I had never heard of them before. I didn't know that Skinnygirl made non-alcoholic beverages. I tasted amazing Zing red velvet vodka. This is a great way for celebrities to interface with brands but also for people to discover new brands that they then going forward will purchase, like me." The Haves and the Have Nots' Peter Parros says, "It's great supporting a good cause like Pajama Program. Kids have to have something good and comfy to sleep in, that's important. Every little bit helps. It's a great room here. I heard the food is incredible. It's a sweet suite." Pretty Little Liars' Wes Ramsey agrees, "It's a lot of fun here! Chocolate, food, music and pajamas for kids, that's where it's at."

Another highlight of Kathy Duliakas' 6th Annual Celebrity Oscar Suite & Party was the Live Social Media Lounge. The entire event Tweeted, InstaGrammed and Facebooked LIVE as all the action unfolded. Celebrities, sponsors, media and a group of social media experts gave their followers an all access VIP digital pass into the party allowing them to follow the live stream and join the conversation, celebrities and fun by using the hashtags #KathySuite and #1MGoodNights. Throughout the day, hashtags #KathySuite and #1MGoodNights were both trending on Twitter.
