AROUND TOWN WITH BONNIE CARROLL
THE STARS ARE SHINING FOR 2022 EMMY NOMINEES & PRESENTERS
After such a long absence it’s great to once again be in Beverly Hills to experience the excitement of the pre-EMMY award activity. The Beverly Wilshire BLVD was buzzing with excitement, Mr. C Hotel entrance was a mad scene, and Sunset Luxe is always an alluring entertainment destination.
It was a fast and quick run for this media lady, and quite wonderful to see so many friends and be greeted by the talented people who produce these magical EMMY events each year. Also, love seeing the nominees being gifted and having fun over some great food and cocktails in advance of the EMMY awards 2022 night.
Wow Productions Pre-Emmy Lounge was a Huge Hit at Mr. C Hotel at Beverly Hills Penthouse
Guests were personally greeted by Wow Productions Mark & Matt Harris at the entrance of Mr. C Hotel at Beverly Hills, where the penthouse was alive with celebrities, guests, media and sponsors celebrating the 2022 EMMYS.

Mark & Matt Harris are such professionals, and always do a great job. So glad to see them and once again experience watching them do their magic! So connected to great celebs and media experts.
Sabre personal alarm products were a huge hit and meeting Tiffany Hamilton and her son Isaiah, an autistic teen a champion for employment for people with autism through victorwear.com was heart warming.
It was a fun atmosphere, where health care professionals, cosmetic stars, designers, skin experts, health product producers, along with a bevy of amazing additional sponsors and charities gathered to have fun with Emmy nominees, presenters, past Emmy stars of film and televisions, media and more to enjoy everything EMMY.
It was a mad day in Beverly Hills with all the Emmy events in progress and a special thanks to Michael at Mr. C Hotel for helping a traveling media lady in distress to keep moving on her quest for news.
