A glorious and generous evening filled with delightful guests who attended to impact the lives of children.
Cynthia Kersey (Unstoppable Foundation Founder) is a phenomenal woman generating & inspiring others to create the way to bring education to children around the world. This years 4thAnnual Gala was hosted at the Beverly Wilshire, a Beverly Hills history-rich luxury Four Season Hotel.
I was thrilled when Bonnie Kanner (Producer) invited us to this event, especially when I heard the word UNSTOPPABLE! We were in Houston visiting my Father and Brother in law, and wereflying back to Los Angeles the day of the event. I had not packed anything to wear for such an occasion, so our friend John Asuncion came to my rescue. He organized my dress, jacket, shoes, etc. and brought them to the airport and drove us to the Beverly Wilshire. I changed my clothes in the ladies room and their was a lovely woman, Maria Rangel, Stylist, applying make-up, and I asked if she’d zip me up. Maria was such a doll, and not only did she zip me up. . .my hair do was falling from the airplane trip, so she took out some pins and coiffed my hair back into shape. The first person I saw that I knew was Brian Larrabbee (Founder of POD), who is having a benefit for children in April. Then I see Cherif Aziz (Producer Discover The Gift), who is smiling away talking with another guest.
