On Saturday, December 9th, 2017, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pasadena, part of the Rusnak Auto Group, revealed the all-new 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom in La Canada, California. The eighth generation of Phantom is a thoroughly contemporary interpretation of true modern luxury, designed and crafted by the House of Rolls-Royce for those who aspire to own the pinnacle member of the Rolls-Royce family.
A snow falling Winter Wonderland menagerie was created for the VIP guests as Russian American trained ballerina, Kamala Saara McDaniels, of the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet Academy of Russia, revealed the 2018 Phantom as she performed to Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. The Toy Drive benefitted the non-profit organization, Hillsides. The event was a day filled with fun and festive holiday spirits as guests came out to support the worthy cause. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pasadena and their VIP guests brought hundreds of unwrapped toys and sports equipment to fulfill the requests of families associated with Hillsides where children have always come first. Santa Claus and his elves, with a special appearance by the Laker Girls, participated at this star-studded afternoon to celebrate the “kid” in all of us. Guests were also treated by 2017 Tournament of Rose’s Princess Natalie and she educated everyone on the proper ‘Rose Parade Wave’. Those who attended enjoyed the oversized, snow-sparkled winter wonderland exclusive soiree that reminded them of when they were a wee-one awaiting for the “big man in red.” Reveled with wine, holiday spirits and sugarplums, bow-bedecked brand new Rolls-Royce’s, music and lots of toys big boys and big girl’s dream of. The shop “for a cause” was held at The Crown Jewel of La Canada Private Estate- an exclusive property of Kobeissi Properties. Guests enjoyed a holiday inspired lunch by Food Network’s star, Chef Tanya Jackson. Celebrity DJ, Happen, brightened the event with his music.
