According to an American aphorist, Mason Cooly, “Good parties create youthfulness.” If this is true, then it must be true about Bergman's Sixth Annual Valentine Romance Oscar Style Lounge and Party. The exclusive occasion was held at the awe-inspiring West Hollywood restaurant, Fig & Olive, on Thursday, February 13, 2014. This was a indeed a good party.
Included in this event were many former and current Oscar nominees and winners as well as other industry celebrities. The party was a phenomenal way to kick off the Oscar season. The event was outfitted with fantastic items and exceptional brands.
Focused on a good cause, the party was used as a venue to promote the non-profit Wednesday’s Child. The charity was on-site collecting new or slightly worn suits, dresses, shoes, pants, accessories, etc. for a Valentine’s Day gift drive. Each item was to be donated to teens in foster care.
This invite-only event was hosted by Begley’s & Bill’s 100% All Natural Sodas and presented by Whitening Lightning & Nature’s Flavors. These brands’ efforts were an immense success because the entire event was filled with incredible stars and incredible products.
There were plenty of Hollywood veterans attending including Angela Bassett and William Shatner. Dynamic comedy duo Cheech and Chong as well as many couples made an appearance, including Carla & Lou Ferrigno, Dot Marie Jones (Glee) and wife Bridgett Casteen Jones. Many stars from some of today’s hottest media attended as well. They included, Kate Flannery from The Office, Tommy Lee Davidson, John Savage, Nicholas Guest, and Patrick Gallagher. These are just a few examples of the packed venue that evening.*
The event was also packed in fantastic products for health, beauty, and fashion. Gifts and services were provided by Begley’s & Bill’s 100% Natural Sodas, Whitening Lightning, Nature’s Flavors, Ooh La Bra, Silvana K Designs, Handmade Hearts by Hillel, PK’s Chocolates, Poof, Simply Eartha, Dr. Ava Cadell, the “Love Doctor,” Baron Hats.

The event was an absolute highlight of the season. It is no wonder they keep it invite only—it would be packed! I very much look forward to attending next year so I can once again thoroughly enjoy myself and cover a absolutely exciting occasion.
