Karma was founded in 2005 to bring people together to drive positive societal change and facilitate good things coming full-circle.
Karma conceived its Kandy Events to support its initiative to create outstanding experiences in elite and sensational social environments with a pay-it-forward twist to benefit noble philanthropies. In 2006, Karma and its Kandy Events made a huge impact on the social scene with the advent of the most outrageous parties of the year, Kandyland at the Playboy Mansion, a mind blowing Halloween at the Rockstar Mansion and an amazing Karma styled New Years Eve Model Mansion Ball at an A-list Hollywood Mansion.
Since our banner 2006 year we have gone on to produce some of the world’s most renowned destination event experiences. Kandyland II in June 2007 was the largest event of the year at the Playboy Mansion until we broke our own record with Kandy Halloween in October 2007 .
In September 2007 we came out with the Kandy Kruise – a full-ship charter of a Royal Caribbean luxury cruise ship for over 2,000 people for three days from Los Angeles to Mexico. In September 2008 we set sail on our second Kandy Kruise full-ship charter aboard the Carnival Paradise. We produced our third Kandy Kruise in Summer 2011. The Kandy Kruise is truly something remarkable and there is nothing like it on the planet.
In 2008 we did our third Kandyland, second Kandy Halloween and our first Kandy Kruise from L.A. to Mexico. 2009 marked the introduction of Kandy Masquerade, an Evening of Mystique and Seduction at the Playboy Mansion, Kandy Vegas at the Palms Casino Resort, our fourth annual Kandyland and our third Kandy Halloween at the Playboy Mansion. In 2010 cemented its place in event history with the second annual Kandy Masquerade, fifth annual Kandyland and fourth annual Kandy Halloween, collectively the three biggest events of the year at the Playboy Mansion.
Karma has been fortunate to garner the support of dozens of global brands to sponsor our events. Past and present sponsors include, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, BMW Motorcycles, MGM Entertainment, Stoli Vodka, Miller Lite, House of Blues, Rockstar Energy Drink, Sunseeker Yachts, Absolute Poker, USP Labs, Ciroc Vodka, Fiji Water, Asombroso Tequila, XM Satellite Radio, Luxury Toy Club & Palms Casino Resort to name a few.
