The face of Southern California Entertainment news and KTLA’s very own Sam Rubin recently hosted a private invite-only Malibu dream dinner for celebrities and influencers in celebration of BUCKiTDREAM, the new social commerce platform that allows users to discover thousands of dreams, document them and ultimately live out those dreams. Location was a private villa in Malibu overlooking the ocean. This is the first of many Dream Experiences from BUCKiTDREAM, the platform launched last year with Sir Richard Branson featuring a dream experience at his Necker Island.
The Malibu Dream Experience’s celebrity guests included Cassie Screbo, Stephanie Pratt, Raquel Pomplun, Trisha Cummings, Ashlee Frazier and Robert Graham from The Bachelor, Tanner Beard, Don Most, Dalal Bruchman, and Victoria Summer.
The theme for the night was Dream Big and Dream Bold. There were elegant giant images of dream destinations from around the world that anyone would want to visit including Bora Bora, an African Safari and Florence. The imagery featured inspiring quotes from Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres.
Upon arrival, guests enjoyed champagne, and specialty cocktails such as the The Dreamy Martini and the Gold Rush. They also enjoyed appetizers from celebrity Chef Massimo which included: Prosciutto & Melone, Mini bruschetta with fresh heirloom tomato and basil, Grilled shrimp with salmoriglio, Endive with Pecorino Toscano and walnuts, and Organic chicken bites with aged balsamic.
After an intro by Sam Rubin, followed by a short story from BUCKiTDREAM founder/CEO Tim Carroll on how he founded the platform, guests proceeded to have a candle-lit dinner overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Celebrity Chef Massimo served the following menu:
