    'Intense Individuals' Rock San Diego For ARTS


    This CNN Ireporter was privileged to cover the annual 'Intense Individuals' Party (No 8) at the Brick By Brick night club in beautiful San Diego last night.


    Please watch our video report to see all of your favorite 'celebs' from the worlds of music, TV, sports, comedy and film...and some headliners from the current pop culture, from the 'Tanning Mom' to 'Octomom'...and the Royal Family too!


    All proceeds from this very unique 'star studded' party went to the ARTS (A Reason To Survive) children's charity. 'A Reason To Survive' is a San Diego based nonprofit organization that believes that the visual, performing, and literary arts can literally transform lives – especially those of kids!


    Every year 'Intense Individuals' host a party that celebrates intensity, individuality & creativity. Everyone comes to the party dressed up like an Intense Individual!


    It’s pretty much the only party where you will find Charlie Sheen and the members of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers rocking out with Alec Baldwin and Meatloaf!


    It seems that all the famous people want to come to this event...as we rocked with politicians and religious leaders - from the Hari Krishnas to Jesus Christ, to a San Diego Mayoral candidate and a Judge!


    What is an Intense Individual? Intense Individuals go from small town girl to YouTube sensation in one night. Intense Individuals live on the edge. Intense Individuals win eight Gold Medals in one summer. Intense Individuals paint happy trees. Everyone is Intense about something and everyone is an Individual, therefore, we are all Intense Individuals!


    This was one of the most fun - and outrageous - events I have ever covered. The brainchildren of these parties are Lisa Comrie Gibson, a producer, and her husband, Greg Gibson. It all started as a house party in Ann Arbor, Michigan, eight years ago. After moving to Evanston, Illinois the following year, it has been in San Diego California ever since.
