Maxim, the largest young men’s lifestyle magazine in America, with VW, Samsung, Patron, Armani Code, Pepsi Max, BSN, Ubisoft and Gillette, celebrate the biggest weekend in professional football at the famed Raleigh Hotel (http://raleighhotel.com/) in Miami Beach on Saturday, February 6. The Maxim Party is an annual celebration of the professional football championship that has become the must-attend event for celebrities, musicians, athletes, trendsetters and more. This year, Maxim welcomes DJs Jermaine Dupri & Vice who will perform at the event and the return of the hotly anticipated special surprise performance is scheduled. The Maxim Party event is produced by Amanda Civitello, Corporate Events Director, Alpha Media Group and Tracy Kessler of TK NY.
Volkswagen of America is making its debut at the Maxim Party on the 100-foot red carpet where an all new 2010 Volkswagen GTI will be on display. Celebrity guests will be encouraged to autograph the hood of the GTI, and for each signature, Volkswagen will make an additional donation to the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. After the event, the autographed hood will be auctioned off on eBay with all proceeds also benefitting Haiti relief efforts. Inside the event, a 2010 Volkswagen CC will be on display. Volkswagen will also provide ten Touareg TDI vehicles for celebrities to travel in an environmentally-friendly way to and from the party.
Samsung, a 4-year partner, is once again providing the event’s structural centerpiece – a three-tiered structure constructed using 9 of the company’s ultra-slim LED TVs to serve as a modern version of the Old Hollywood Chandelier. It will be suspended above the famous pool at the Raleigh. Additionally, Samsung TVs will line the stage for the event’s surprise performance and broadcast live footage of the red carpet throughout the evening.
Patron Tequila returns as the exclusive spirit of the Maxim Party and has created specialty cocktails for the event – including exclusive cocktails for event partner, Armani Code, mixed especially to complement the sophisticated fragrance of Armani Code fragrance. In keeping with tradition, Patron will have a unique red carpet presence that is in keeping with the nautical decor of the Raleigh Hotel.
Gillette, the world’s leading grooming brand and Pepsi Max, the first diet cola for men, both returning sponsors, will be seamlessly integrated into the evening’s celebration. At gaming stations throughout the event, attendees can try their hand at Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, the upcoming game by Ubisoft, a new event partner.
