Jason Hope’s Ludacris-mas event takes the cake for best holiday event the Valley has seen to date! It was a white-themed, star-studded affair decked out with celeb guests, red carpet glitz, live entertainment and sparkling décor. It took place at the exclusive gated-community in North Scottsdale, Silverleaf. Arizona Foothills was there capturing all the action whether it was Snooki tearing it up on the dance floor to Ludacris’s beats or Hope’s exclusive interview with the Daily 60, we’ve got it all!
Upon entering Hope’s beautiful mansion, snow blanketed the ground and trees were gorgeously lit. Warmth from the bon fires and white curtains billowed on Hope’s massive patio deck. Cocktail waitresses kept the drinks and appetizers flowing while guests got down to the DJ’s beats and Ludacris’s incredible live performance. The elevated glass-floored deck and steaming hot tub was definitely one of the highlights.
Looking fancy from head to toe, the celebrity guests made their grand entrances. Reality TV personalities, Stephanie Pratt and Lo Bosworth took their seats on red plush couches followed by Jersey Shore’s Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and Olympic Gold Medalist and star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Bruce Jenner. Soon after, former Superman Dean Cain and E! News Host, Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill Rancic, stars of the Style Network’s Giuliana & Bill made their appearances. Miss Arizona USA 2011, Brittany Brannon and Miss Arizona Teen USA 2011, Molly Argue interviewed in style with the Daily 60, Ludacris tore the stage up and Congressmen Ben Quayle, Jeff Flake and Scottsdale Mayor, Jim Lane all took part in the fun. All celebs stayed at the beautiful W Scottsdale Hotel.
Erik Peterson AIA and his wife Kimberly Peterson along with Arizona Foothills President and Publisher Michael Dee were dressed to impress as well as Tom and Maggie Argue. Danny Hendon, owner of Danny’s Family Carwash and wife Kelly Hendon, also soaked in the fun.
Hope is having a big year and we mean big! We got an exclusive Daily 60 interview with Hope, Jawa CEO, about his incredible holiday party and the building of his 100,000 square-foot home located up the road in Silverleaf. Everything from zip lines, to an indoor basketball court, a three-story club and all the other features will make his home the largest in North America.
When Ludacris took the stage, the crowd went ballistic singing every lyric to some of his biggest hits. Arizona Foothills photographers captured his performance along with the rest of the event snapping photos of guests, celebs and a Santa Clause’s appearance.
It will be hard for Hope to top himself on this one. ‘Ludacris-mas’ was an incredible affair that will be talked about for months! We can’t wait to see what Hope’s plans are for next year!
