MDSUN “Night of Elegance” & Big Brothers / Big Sisters Big Bash

It was truly “A Night of Elegance” when MDSUN hosted a Renaissance-themed charity Ball at the Four Seasons Hotel. We have never seen such an elegant crowd, enjoying the evening’s festivities — including a gourmet dinner, piano performances by Peter Kate & the beautiful voices of several prominent guests, including actress/singer Stephanie Spruill, who worked with Tom Jones. Some of the VIP’s in attendance included Producer, Harrison Engle, architect/interior designer, Sandra Costa, and Chinese Super Star, Lydia Chen.

Beautiful Zehra Sun greeted the 200+ guests, along with her revered husband, renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. George Sun. He launched MDSUN, a line of premium skin-care products to aid in anti-aging in 2001. The company now is known world-wide, and is a favorite with celebrities & beauty experts.

We were pleased to go home with an exclusive bag of MDSUN products, including a diamond-shaped crystal engraved with my name! Kudos to TV Producer, Joey Zhou (we recently were a guest on his international talk show) & of course, Zehra Sun, who donated partial proceeds of the event to five Acres Orphanage, and ACICATA for their Autism Project.

BBBS provides children facing adversity with one-to-one mentoring, and changes their lives for the better. 100% of the girls in the group’s Women in Entertainment Program were admitted to a four year university! Founded by Walt Disney & Meredith Wilson in 1955, BBBS is a leading non-profit in the LA community. Among the celebrated guests were Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek), who presented Adam Lambert, singer, song writer, actor & currently front man for Queen. Shows the show-biz does have a heart, for what could be better than to act as a mentor and role model to our cities youth.
