Great pleasure working with Giulian Jones ( Celebrity Chef) and Benjamin Scott (Beneficial entertainment) for such amazing event dedicated for Children's Hospital in Los Angeles.
Rock ‘N Fashion, a night of amazing rock n’ roll and a fashion runway show benefitting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Some of rock music’s finest artists performed live including members of Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and more. Plus a special tribute to The Rolling Stones. Private cocktail reception in Marilyn Room was featuring exclusive art showing from well-known artists, Thrashbird, Laurent Proneur, and Ralph Rieckermann from the legendary Scorpions.
"I want to thank everyone for coming out to our Rock 'N Fashion: A Benefit for Children's Hospital Los Angeles. With your support it was a tremendous success!
It was a true honor to work with as many accomplished, considerate, and altruistic people as those who were involved with this event.
