Posted on: March 21st, 2014

Boys & Girls Clubs LA Alliance Celebration!

boys and girls club

What a wonderful night at Club Nokia at LA LIVE for the Boys & Girls Club
Youth of the Year event! I was so honored to meet, and judge many of the 27
kids from around L.A. county.  Their stories…. inspiring, their words….
uplifting, their journey…. challenging, their positive outlook on
life…Priceless. This year my personal resolution was to participate with a
group/organization that made a difference.  I was not disappointed in having
the honor to work with the Boys & Girls Club on their Youth of the Year
event to fulfill my commitment to myself for 2014.

I of course volunteered our services at for the nominee
swag bags. What is an event without some good products?  Along with
HSB-Hollywood Swag Bag and the many companies we have worked with over the
past year who kindly donated, we made these kids feel like the stars of the
night they were. I wish you were all there to see the smiles on their faces.
In short, I was thankful I  was asked to participate by Mary Hewitt, who is
such an amazing woman, and happy to see the many corporate sponsors that
contributed to these kids futures. We see so much bad on T.V. these days,
and this truly gave me hope for the future of our younger generation.

Congratulations to the two fabulous and deserving winners Margarita from
the Foothills club and Paola from the Salesian club!  Picture attached of
them with host from ABC & Disney representative, and some young stars over
at Disney T.V. They are both beautiful woman on the outside, and inside and
will be forever grateful for them sharing their wonderful stories and how
they did not allow them to be victims of today’s society or cave to peer
