Unlike many other gifting lounges during award season, the "Stuff You Must" lounge, produced by On 3 Productions, has a strong charitable component. In addition to the monetary donation from CVS/pharmacy, beneficiaries from the two affiliated charities - Best Buddies and Lollipop Theater Network - received the celebrity treatment with gift bags and pampering at CVS/pharmacy's spa and gifting suite at the lounge.

"CVS/pharmacy is dedicated to improving the lives of those in the communities we serve," said Eileen Howard Dunn, Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications and Community Relations for CVS/pharmacy. "We are pleased to have once again teamed up with Access Hollywood to bring this contribution to these very worthy charities at this exciting event."

Celebrity representatives, Vanessa Hudgens ("High School Musical 3") and Taylor Lautner ("Twilight"), accepted the check from CVS/pharmacy on behalf of the two charities supported by Access Hollywood hosts Nancy O'Dell and Billy Bush.

The lounge, which opened Friday, January 9th and ran through Saturday, January 10th, featured hairstyling by celebrity stylist Cristophe, aromatherapy massages with Vickery & Clarke Natural Apothecary and must-have beauty products from the CVS/pharmacy Reinventing Beauty Bar. Attendees were also introduced to Beauty 360, CVS/pharmacy's new prestige beauty concept store, at the Beauty 360 Prestige Suite, where they received makeup applications from Laura Geller of Laura Geller Makeup, and skincare consultations and treatments from Scott-Vincent Borba of BORBA, as well as a selection of luxury and niche beauty products.

Additional celebrity attendees who enjoyed pampering from CVS/pharmacy and Beauty 360 in the lounge included Sally Hawkins, Golden Globe winner for Best Actress in a Comedy, Maria Menounos ("Access Hollywood"), Zach Levi ("Chuck"), Selena Gomez ("Wizards of Waverly Place"), Rumer Willis (Actress), Stacy Keibler ("Dancing with the Stars") and dozens more.
