The 4th Annual White Party | An Egyptian Experience
Written by: Bryanna Quinonez, CEO of the L For Lupus Community Foundation
The 4th Annual White Party took guests on an Egyptian experience Saturday, December 3rd, 2022 at Eden Gardens Event Center. This fundraising event was unlike any other. Just 4 years ago, DMR Productions & JQ Events decided to create an event that would not only show fashion and luxury design but also show guests a new take on fundraising for a noble cause, lupus.
This year’s 2022 All White Party, guests were transported back in time and was immersed into an Egyptian-themed experience. Firstly, being greeted by Pharaoh's fanning guests while maidens all entered and were welcomed into what DMR called “Alexandria’s Marketplace”, where local vendors were promoting and selling art, textiles, and henna services.
Upon arrival, guests were invited to walk through an art installation by local Sacramento Designer Yennie Zhou. They immediately braced themselves to meet Cleopatra and be entertained by live music, fire performer, and belly dance. Neil Nayyar, Euphoria Sparks, and Tezza Belly Dance. Before the main event, guests were able to enjoy delicious Mediterranean food by Crest Cafe and also enjoy photo-worthy decorations by JQ Events.
One of the biggest highlighting experiences was a show-stopping one, an Elevated Fashion Show by Fashion Couture designer Nicole Jordan and hair by Adam Randall. It was an out-of-this-world experience. The models looked like goddesses wrapped with gold accessories and colorful jewels. But the most important part of the event was to act of promoting lupus awareness and fundraising over $1000 for a lupus family in need during the Holiday season through the L For Lupus Silent Auction. The Charity was able to help The Ramos family in Antelope, CA as both of the parents have been undergoing chemotherapy for lupus and also Throat Cancer.
As producers of the events and founders of the 501(c) (3) nonprofit L For Lupus Community Foundation, we recognize the difficult times families have been going through and do not stand blindly or unwillingly. We understand it’s our noble duty to help others in need, and that is the main reason we promote events like these that give back directly to the community. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease and can affect any joints and organs in the body. Most people are wrongly diagnosed, and many people suffer from the disease. It’s important to be aware and promote action to lessen symptoms and flareups.
