Gavin B. Keilly, Owner and CEO of GBK, states, “We are looking forward to not only honoring the 2009 Golden Globes Nominees and Presenters, but also we’re very excited to introduce them to our benefiting charities and the brands taking part of our Suite. It’s a ‘win-win’ for all involved.”

To honor their continued commitment to charitable giving, GBK will donate 20% of its profits from this year’s suite to four specially chosen charities: Actor/Activist Isiah Washington’s Gondobay Manga Foundation; Homeless Not Toothless; Educating Young Minds & Hollywood Note Foundation.
