"For ten years now, our Malibu parties have been about the chic, fun and socially-conscious Southern California lifestyle," said Glenda Borden, celebrity party planner and president of Borden Entertainment, who yet again joins forces with Lash Fary of Distinctive Assets to produce this year’s extravaganza. Pacific Events was retained to handle all facets of the ambitious event setup and décor which will combine the elegance of the Mondrian with a splash of Vegas fabulousness . . . complete with the costumed Champagne Showgirls, a 200-person gaming tent and “umbrella’d beach stations” on the rolling knolls of the estate.
