Choices Recovery, a holistic substance abuse and treatment center, and TV and film sustainable product placement producer Debbie Durkin, of Los Angeles, co-hosted a glamorous party to honor the 2015 Oscar Nominees the day before the official Oscar ceremony, the 87th Academy Awards. The expansive scenery surrounding the luxurious Beverly Hilton set the background, as the rooftop space was turned into the EcoLuxe Lounge, a gift lounge that treated guests to a wide array of items provided by local and national businesses.

Some of the world’s leaders in the ecologically sound and sustainable products and services markets attended the event, which gave them the chance to meet and discuss socially-conscious and environmentally-friendly ideas with Oscar nominees and other VIPs. People from many industries mixed and mingled to learn more about making positive choices and promoting the use of renewable resources.

Attendees received a generous sampling of gifts, including Choices Recovery gift bags, mini-meal bars from Nutrition Chef Alex Fioroni, CanaDog pet supply items, glamping vacation packages to Yellowstone, The Moan Desert and Glacier Park supplied by Under Canvas, and eco-friendly makeup and hair accessories provided by OC Hair & Makeup.

Choices Recovery founder, Per Wickstrom was pleased with the turnout and said, “We were honored to have a chance to get new ideas and fresh perspectives on the problems of addiction that we face today.”

The Oscar nominees at the EcoLuxe Lounge included Elise Robertson (Oscar Nominee American Sniper Best Picture), Jason Canovas (Oscar Nominee The Hobbit: Sound Editing), Lisa Bruce (Oscar Nominee The Theory of Everything: Best Picture), Ben Wilkins (Oscar Winner Whiplash: Best Sound Mixing), Michael Lennox (Oscar Nominee Boogaloo and Graham: Best Live Action Short Film), and Elizabeth Yianni-Georgiou (Oscar Nominee Guardians of the Galaxy: Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling.

Other VIPs included Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), Claudia Wells (Back To The Future), Jason Davis (Celebrity Rehab), Frank Stallone (Rocky), Chase Masterson (General Hospital, ER), Travis Aaron Wade (Super Natural), Kristen Renton (Sons of Anarchy), Slade Smiley (Real Housewives of Orange County), Adina Porter (True Blood), and many others.

Soon after the EcoLuxe Lounge concluded, Choices Recovery sponsored a “Salute to the Oscars” party. Grtechen Christine Rossi from Real Housewives of Orange County and Chris Booker of AMP Radio also sponsored this event, which featured furnishings and decor inspired by the American rustic chic style. The space was designed by Under Canvas, Elan Event Rentals, LBPS Events, and Frances Lynn Creative Florals.

At both parties, DJ Dime spun records and provided audio entertainment.

The day and evening events allowed light to be shed on addiction and how it can be more successfully treated. Wickstrom said, “We were thrilled to be a part of the EcoLuxe Lounge and the ‘Salute to the Oscars’ party . We were grateful to have the opportunity to share more about what we strive for at Choices Recovery, which is offering holistic options for the treatment of addiction.”
