On April 1st and 2nd, Nathalie Dubois, famous worldwide for her luxury gifting suites, held “The DPA Pre-Grammys Drive-Up” event at Circa Resort and Casino. Over the two days, 75 gift bags were presented to nominees, presenters, influencers and media who were in town to celebrate the 64th Grammy Awards.
Celebrities who drove up to take photos and receive their gifts included Autumn Rowe, Kizzo, Cheri Moon, Sean Ardoin, J. Ivy, Obba Babatundé, Steve Stevens, Mayte Garcia, Oscar winner Robert Fryvolent (Summer of Soul), Nabeyin, and many others.
DPA teamed up with Circa Resort and Casino and Barry’s Downtown Prime for the exclusive gifting event.
“When I planned my event, I knew I had to find the best of Vegas to team up with. I was introduced by my friend and singer Mercedes to the owner of Barry’s Downtown Prime, and he made it happen with Circa Resort and Casino,” said Dubois. “The drive-in idea came as a natural, as I wanted everybody to stay safe, but still to have fun during the week of the Grammys, as we did a year ago for the Golden Globes.”
