The Entertainment Industry Foundation is bringing together a powerful group of young Hollywood professionals to create its New Millennium Task Force. To launch the new charitable venture, the EIF is joining forces with personal services Web site Indulge.com, Vanity Fair and a bevy of young celebs to throw a very unusual coming-out party Monday night at the Skybar.
The fete will feature such unique party favors as massages, manicures, reflexology and hairstyling tips. Illuminated by aromatherapy candles, cashmere throws will adorn seating areas and tabletops will be covered with rose petals. To ensure that all of the senses are addressed, special “indulgent cocktails” have been concocted specifically for the evening.
Event isn’t simply devoted to indulgence, however. Its fundamental aim is to involve young artists and power brokers in causes that reach well beyond the insular world of Hollywood; it’s a way of initiating the emerging in-group into the spirit of giving back and incorporating them into the world of fund-raising.
“This event will offer everyone involved the opportunity to give back –which is, in many ways, the ultimate indulgence,” said Indulge.com CEO Cathy Taylor.
Besides beauty tips and back rubs, the evening’s festivities will include a silent auction organized by the Task Force benefiting the Children’s Health & Care Fund. In keeping with the evening’s theme, the items on the block will be suitably decadent: a $9,000 Chopard watch, designer clothes and jewelry, Pashmina wraps and spa services will be up for auction.
Indulge.com will also donate $25,000 to the New Millennium Task Force and sponsor a sweepstakes tie-in with Monday’s event.
