As Hollywood gets ready for the 22nd Annual Kids’ Choice Award this week, Melanie Segal’s Celebrity Lounge is where celebrities are celebrating before the show.
Located in the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood and the brain child of Platinum Publicity’s Melanie Segal, the lounge invites celebrities to enter a lounge where they will receive the latest in gifting while helping out a great cause. For every celebrity guest that attends the lounge, Stouffer’s is donating 1,000 meals to LA’s needy. They are planning to “Feed LA for the Day” by donating funds to pay for approximately 70,000 meals. Feeding America and the LA Food Bank will be on hand at the event. Celebrities will also be asked to autograph an arcade-game from Dream Arcades, which will be auctioned off for charity.
“This is a great time for people to escape from the worries of the economic climate and enjoy themselves!” says owner of Platinum Publicity, Melanie Segal. “We’ve been hearing so much negativity in the news lately — it’s nice to just forget about all of that, be a kid again, receive some fun gifts, and give back to society at the same time! I think it’s what a lot of people really need right now!”
From the moment celebrities enter the lounge they can expect lots of fun and surprises. Guests will play on Dream Arcade games and Dance Dance Revolution. Big kids will try exotic teas at the Tea Bar and little kids can eat from the Candy Bar. Caricaturists, airbrush tattoo artists, Tarot Card readers and Grammy Award winning pianist/composer Charles Segal will entertain guests, and ManiPedi Cutie will be polishing nails.
Guests so far have included Pete Sampras & Bridget Wilson, Wayne Brady, Calista Flockhart, Adam Gregory (90210), Sally Field, Eric McCormack, Patricia Heaton, Don Cheadle, Monica Potter, Katie Price & Peter Andre, Shannon Elizabeth and many more.
