Big Fight Big Cause

Big Fight Big Cause

On Wednesday, May 13th, I attended a very unique charity event at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood. It was the 6th Annual “Big Fighters, Big Cause” Charity Boxing Night and Auction co-hosted by The Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation and B. Riley & Co. The event raises money for research and awareness for Type 1 & 2 Diabetes and to help children live healthier lives through diet and exercise. What made this event so exciting and distinctive was the refreshing way they set it up. This was not your typical charity event where there is a silent auction and sit down dinner. There was no dried out chicken being served and no bar where the only libation being offered is bad wine. This was an amazing spread catered by Wolfgang Puck. There was an open bar and the signature drink being served was the “Moscow Mule”. It had much more of a lounge feel, mixed in with all the energy of a world class sporting event. No stuffy round tables, which we’ve all been forced to sit at, while the silent auction is being screamed at you. This one was different. There were chairs all around and the boxing ring was in the center if the room. There were sexy red velvet ropes everywhere so those big spending boxing fans could be up close and personal with the blood and sweat. The vibe was fun and festive! People were buzzing around, grooving to the club music mixed by DJ Shy before the event. It was very VIVA Las Vegas, only in Hollywood with a heavyweight guest list.

Emceed by actor, comedian and sexy hubby, Bill Bellamy, the evening featured a thrilling mix of professional and amateur heavy-weight bouts with well-known fighters from around the globe. To kick off the night, the National Anthem was performed by the very hot American Idol alum Jessica Sanchez, who is very poplar with the younger crowd.Then we were treated to some great boxing matches, and in between bouts the auction happened with a lot of iconic sports memorabilia. Celebrity attendees included Laila Ali, Catherine Bach (Bill was very excited to meet the original, Daisy Duke), Cedric the Entertainer, Tommy Hearns, Tommy Davidson, Wolfgang Puck, & Holly Robinson Peete. I, on the other hand, loved meeting the man who coined the phrase “Let’s get ready to Rumble”, Michael Buffer. All in all it was a good night for a fight!

  7. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
