This past Saturday, July 23rd, The Prive Group hosted their annual charity bash, “Summer Solstice 2011” at the Playboy Mansion. Hollywood Stars and the Los Angeles Elite partied it up for a great cause. The fundraiser benefited the Rescue Humanity Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the living conditions of the disenfranchised and vulnerable – orphans, abused women, and the rural poor – of Nepal.
This premier event dazzled guests with a dizzying array of sensory stimulations, starting with the RPM Lounge’s “Concorso Exotica 2011” car exhibit showcasing several exotic vehicles, special Burlesque show by former Pussy Cat Doll and actress/model Rachel Sterling, a celebrity poker tournament with prizes, a sumptuous gourmet buffet, premium open bar, fabulous live and silent auctions, Playboy Playmates, go-go dancers, body painted models, fire-dancing performances, a fashion show from CopaWear International, Benchwarmer International, Dreamgirl International, and AMI Clubwear, and over 250 gorgeous models from across the country. In addition to the parade of activities and visual beauty, guests had the privilege of exploring the grounds of the world famous Playboy Mansion, all while rocking out to the cutting-edge tunes from several world-class DJ’s. A Special Guest performance was made by Vinyl Station, anchored by singer, song-writer Matthew Thornton and drummer Scott Kusmirek who has toured and recorded with the Grammy nominated Gin Blossoms and 80’s synth/pop band When in Rome.
