Leesa Rowland Hosts “Old Hollywood Halloween Soiree”

by | Nov 8, 2023

The holiday season is upon us unveiling a myriad of notable events for the season. Few manifest in the most magical way as actress, philanthropist, and author Leesa Rowland’s productions. An elegant affair premiered on Saturday, October 28th by the halloween glamour queen herself, Leesa Rowland and husband Larry Wohl. The jovial duo held an “Old Hollywood Glamour – A Halloween Soiree ” at The Venue in the Hard Rock Hotel Times Square New York.

The one-of-a-kind, show stopping, bi-level venue in Manhattan is designed to impress and inspire all who venture through its doors. At over 6,000 sq. ft. the space features capabilities for a stage, live performance, or DJ with state-of-the-art audio-visual components. The cabaret style seating with leather banquettes, solid wood cocktail tables, high top tables, and a built-in bar located on each level ensures a constant flow of liquid libations. This star-studded night was no exception. 

From the dawn of the evening until the end of the night, guest received royal treatment. As they descended sub-level via the dedicated elevator bank with a private entrance a stunning flapper with oversized feathers danced at the foot of the grand stairwell. Renowned event planner Hank Stampfl’s of Revel Rouge went all out for the Old Hollywood themed décor. Bringing life to the silver screen era, Stampfl and Rowland converted the space with red carpets, step and repeats, cocktails and dinner full of grace and style.

This light-hearted party was a throwback to the times when the movie studios created the Grace Kelly’s and Cary Grants who romanticized our lives and dreams. Guests wore their best Hollywood classic looks while enjoying cocktails, dancing to live music, and enjoying special tributes to stars and starlets playing on the big screen. Fashion Designer Marc Bouwer designed Leesa’s Costume which was a tribute to iconic glamour beauty Brigitte Bardot. 

Notable Attendees included: Leesa Rowland, Larry Wohl, Marc Bouwer, Pedro Oberto, Ramona Singer, Carmen D’Alessio, Tina Radziwill, Debbie Dickinson, Wendy and Bob Federman, Dottie Herman, Pamela Morgan, Stewart F Lane and Bonnie Comley, Liliana Cavendish, Paul Margolin, Sergio Zapata, Lucia Hwong Gordon, Cindy Guyer, Nicole Noonan and Steve Knobel, Sharon Bush, Hank Stampfl, Lady Betty Grafstein and Jose Castelo Branco, Bill Sclight and Cheri Kaufman.

Ramona Singer

The daughter of an artist and college professor, Leesa Rowland grew up in Austin, Texas where she studied broadcast journalism and later became a classically trained actress at the world-renowned Stella Adler Studio in Los Angeles. 

Beyond her extensive career and credits as a film and television actress, she is also well-known for her work as a philanthropist and animal rights activist. A vegan dedicated to healthy eating, she has been active with the national non-profit organization Last Chance for Animals since 1989 and is the president of the New York non-profit group Animal Ashram, which she founded in 2013. 

As she continues to develop her work as a philanthropist and involvement with these and other charities while exploring new dramatic roles, Leesa recently began adding something else exciting to her sizzle reel: comedienne. A lifelong sitcom fan, she has been taking comedy classes with Richard Kline – the actor best known as Larry on the late-1970s classic Three’s Company – in Los Angeles. She has also been studying improv and sketch comedy in New York at the famed Upright Citizen’s Brigade whose alumni include Amy Poehler, Horatio Sands, Matt Besser, Matt Walsh and Ian McKay.

Leesa’s new book, The Charisma Factor: Unlock the Secrets of Magnetic Charm and Personal Influence in Your Life, which is available in bookstores and online.
