Located somewhere in Los Angeles at a secret location that's been described as a spot "with masterful architectural features reminiscent of a Venetian opera house," the sixth annual Karma Masquerade will take place. Promising to be one of the most impressive parties to date, the "Eyes Wide Shut" event will feature strolling performers, striking lighting exhibitions, surprise stage shows and living art displays.
Unlike other parties of this caliber, however, gaining access is much more involved than purchasing a ticket online. While members can get in without a problem, non-members actually have to apply to be given the chance to buy a ticket. Even members' guests will have to be approved beforehand, making this one of the most exclusive annual blowout parties around. According to Karma's Twitter page, Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas will be doing a special performance for the event, which is an example of the level of surprises the evening may hold.
Beyond this party, though, you might be wondering what Karma International members get with their $3,000 annual membership fee. Referring to itself as "The world's greatest social business network of like-minded philanthropic individuals," it would seem that the business connections alone would be more than enough reason to consider a membership. Members include business owners, philanthropists, industry leaders, virtuoso performers, moguls and experts across numerous industries and practices.
In addition to mansion socials, yachting events, parties and monthly meet ups, the primary goal of Karma International seems to be the betterment of humanity. With constant charitable donations going out and an array of altruistic gatherings conducted, there's a good-natured reason the company has been discussed by the likes of National Geographic, Fox News, the Associated Press and numerous other media organizations.
The company is "revered as one of the greatest experiential event producers in history," and although that normally means a chugging profit motive amongst movers and shakers, the philanthropic aspect of Karma International makes us love it just that much more.
The sixth annual Karma Masquerade takes place on May 17, and limited tables are available for purchase. VIP tables seat four to six people and cost $3,000 while the large VIP table seats eight to 10, and is priced at $4,500. All tables include free-flowing premium bottle service, a dedicated hostess and express entry.
