The Palm Springs area has literally become a summer hot spot in more ways than one. Between Memorial and Labor Day weekends, the hot temperature have usually detoured valley visitors. That scenario is fading out while new summer events are fading in. The 2014 Summer Extravaganza is announced as the desert’s next bid to lure fun seekers to the Coachella Valley.
The event will awaken the desert with music and fashion, powered by philanthropy. This year’s Summer Extravaganza is presented by the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa and will benefit a number of charities such as the Apl.de.ap Foundation International established by Apl.de.ap of the Grammy Award-winning group, Black Eyed Peas. Other charities include the National Alliance for Filipino-Americans, Inc., headquartered in Palm Springs; Safehouse of the Desert and N7 Fund which serves Native American children from the Indian Tribes of Coachella Valley.
The tropical beach themed evening will begin with a luau dinner for preferred guests inside the Grand Palms buffet from 4pm to 7pm. The all-star swimsuit and fashion show/concert, headlined by Apl.de.ap, will take place simultaneously beginning at 8pm inside The Show. Other artists performing include teen rock band Above Seclusion; The X Factor and Season 3 finalist, Julianne Manalo. The swimsuit fashion show will feature both female and male models, including Miss Universe first runner up, Janine Tugonon. The Summer Extravaganza will be the Palm Springs version of the much-acclaimed Victoria’s Secret fashion show
Following the fashion show they will be raffling off a 2014 Ford Mustang. Proceeds from the raffle will also benefit the charities involved with tickets priced at $100 and only 2500 tickets being sold. Orchestra and loge ticket holders and patrons with box seats will be given exclusive access to an after party with the models and performers beginning at 10:30. Guests can dance the night away at the after party with DJ APEK from Los Angeles (originally from the Coachella Valley).
I am honored to be hosting the inaugural Summer Extravaganza and invite you to bring your friends out for and amazing night of music, fashion and fundraising.
