This was the 5th year in a row that I participated in the Echoes of Hope Charity Event! Historically, I race a hockey player as a "goal" for my team. It has become somewhat of a tradition and in 2016 the event has now moved from the Sundance Film Festival to LA. It's been great to keep in touch with the participants year to year, be a part of a great cause and watch it grow. My grandmother adopted and I have aunts and uncles that come from foster care, therefore Echoes is one that's important to support. The day before the game, I traveled from FL where I was VIP guest at Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within to Luc's Celebrity Shootout. This year I was even more excited because my foundation Off the Ice Foundation partnered with Echoes of Hope and Charity Buzz to auction off two tickets to the game. Thank you to the both organizations and the winner of the auction, who did not choose to get a photo. Join me below as I take you behind the scenes!
The night before the came, the invites got together at the LA Kings Game to celebrate the cause. I took my friend Cali, who's behind the camera.
Julie from Julie E. Health heard I was in town and asked for me to take a picture with her son Devon (Left) in his baseball uniform before the event! Wished them good luck then headed to....
It was great to see the tremendous amount of support at the Toyota Center!
Quick photos and interviews! I went casual to the red carpet with BCBG leggings, a Vince blouse and royal blue mesh heels. Added jewelry my nephews got for me for me as a gift. They will be so excited to see that I'm wearing it.
Once inside the Toyota Center, I got game ready and headed to the ice for the team huddle. Get pumped watching this video of our team chant!
Post Game: This year I was the only girl with skates on. It was great to represent the ladies in the building and race a hockey player. The LA Kings Ice Girls had a ton of questions for me and they now want to learn how to speed skate, love it. I happily gave them my personal contact information.
The night ended with food, drinks, hockey and power skating talk. Which you know me, I could happily talk skating for hmm...a long time! xoxo
