Bodog.com has announced its poker chip sets will be handed out in luxury gift bags by Jewels and Pinstripes - one of the United States' premiere gift bag companies - to Oscar nominees at the EXTRA Awards Lounge on March 1 and 2 at Le Meridien Hotel in Los Angeles, just days before the Academy Awards are scheduled to take place.
In addition to the Bodog.com Poker Chip Set, the gift bag, valued at more than $12,000, includes a wide variety of exclusive items such as an Indianapolis 500 VIP Experience Package, DKNY Red Delicious Perfume and Cologne, Betties hand-pinstriped patent-leather pumps, NextSport Asphalt Carving Scooter, and Chi-Chi Couture.com Dog Treats, among many other items. All products will be packed in a 25-inch piece from the Vera Bradley Signature Luggage Collection distributed by Ricardo Beverly Hills.
Nominees such as Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney, Charlize Theron, Felicity Huffman, Heath Ledger, Keira Knightly, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joaquin Phoenix, Michelle Williams, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Terrance Howard, Matt Dillon, and many others, have been invited to the EXTRA Awards Lounge and will receive the Jewels and Pinstripes' bag as a final gift when they leave the suite.
"The EXTRA Awards Lounge presented an excellent opportunity for Bodog.com to showcase our exciting brand to this year's nominees," said Calvin Ayre, founder and CEO of Bodog.com. "It will remind the recipients of what a celebrity-friendly company Bodog is. With this, our upcoming Costa Rican taping of 'Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker' and other celebrity initiatives, Bodog.com is the premier online brand with top Hollywood names."
