Item  1.01                      Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Item  2.03                      Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
Item  3.02                      Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On April 6, 2011, Vanity Events Holding, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with IIG Management LLC, an accredited investor (the “Investor”), providing for the sale by the Company to the Investor of a 10% convertible debenture in the principal amount of up to $135,000 (the “Debenture”). The Debenture matures on the first anniversary of the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”) and bears interest at the annual rate of 10%.  The Company is not required to make any payments until the Maturity Date. The Investor may convert, at any time, the outstanding principal and accrued interest on the Debenture into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”) at a conversion price per share equal to a ninety percent (90%) discount of the average of the closing bid price of the Common Stock during the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the conversion date.

In connection with the Agreement, the Investor received a warrant to purchase 30,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Warrant”). The Warrant is exercisable for a period of three years from the date of issuance at an initial exercise price of $0.0045, the closing price of the Company’s Common Stock as quoted on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board on April 5, 2011. The Investor may exercise the Warrant on a cashless basis if the shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrant is not then registered pursuant to an effective registration statement after one year from the date of issuance. In the event the Investor exercises the Warrant on a cashless basis, then we will not receive any proceeds.

The conversion price of the Debenture and the exercise price of the Warrant are subject to full ratchet and anti-dilution adjustment for subsequent lower price issuances by the Company, as well as customary adjustments provisions for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and the like.

The Investor has contractually agreed to restrict its ability to exercise the Warrant and convert the Debenture such that the number of shares of the Company common stock held by each of the Investor and its affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.99% of the Company’s then issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock.

As an inducement for the Investors to enter into the Purchase Agreement, the Company, Shawn Knapp, the Company’s chief executive officer (“Mr. Knapp”) and the Investor entered into a Pledge Agreement pursuant to which the Debenture is secured by 270,262 of Mr. Knapp’s shares of series A convertible preferred stock of the Company.  In addition, on April 6, 2011,  Mr. Knapp entered into a Make Good Securities Escrow Agreement with the Investor and Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP (the “Escrow Agent”) whereby Mr. Knapp has agreed to deliver to the Escrow Agent (i) certificate(s) representing an aggregate of 129,738 shares of the Company’s series A convertible preferred stock, registered in the name of Shawn Knapp, the Company’s chief executive officer (the “Make Good Shares”), and (ii) a stock power duly executed in blank and with signature medallion guaranteed by a national bank or trust company, (collectively, the “Make Good Documents”), which shall be deliverable in the event the Company fails to achieve certain financial performance thresholds for the 12-month period ended December 31, 2011 as described below:

(a) For purposes thereof, “2011 Target Number” shall mean the Company’s gross revenue for the year ended December 31, 2011 is less than $2,500,000.00.
(b) If the Company’s gross revenues are not equal to the 2011 Target Number, the Escrow Agent shall deliver all the Make Good Documents to the Investor.

(c) If the Company’s gross revenues greater than or equal to the 2011 Target Number, the Escrow Agent shall deliver the Make Good Documents to Mr. Knapp.

 (d) The distribution of Make Good Documents pursuant to this Section 2 shall be made within five (5) business days after the Company files its Form 10-K with the SEC for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.  In the event that the Company does not file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 with the SEC within thirty (30) days after the date that filing was required, after giving effect to any extension pursuant to Rule 12b-25 of the 1934 Act, the Make Good Documents shall be delivered to the Investor.

The Debenture is a debt obligation arising other than in the ordinary course of business which constitute a direct financial obligation of the Company.      The full principal amount of the Debenture is due upon a default under the terms of the Debenture. In connection with the transaction, the Company undertook to effectuate a 1-for-300 reverse split of its common stock (the “Reverse Split”) on or prior to April 22, 2011 (the “Reverse Split Deadline”). In the event the Reverse Split is not effectuated on or prior to the Reverse Split Deadline, it shall be an event of default under the Debenture.

The securities were offered and sold to the Investor in a private placement transaction made in reliance upon exemptions from registration pursuant to Section 4(2) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Rule 506 promulgated under Regulation D thereunder. The Investor is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
