Last week the popular Beverly Hills store Kitson held a toy drive for the “LA Mission”, in conjuction with Jim Henson’s launch party of the Fraggle Rock Clothing and costume jewelry collection.
There were several celebrities in attendance such as Paris & Nicky Hilton, Carmen Electra, “Dancing with the Stars” Gilles Marini, Karina Smirnoff, Samantha Harris, Shana Moakler, Debi Mazar, Monet Mazur & son, Melissa Joan Hart & son, Vanessa Marcil & family, Joey Lawrence & wife, Kevin Sorbo & family, Stephanie Pratt, Annie Duke & Joe Reitman, Ziggy Marley & family, Allison Janney, Kellie Martin, Meaghan Martin, Molly Quinn, Britanny Curran, Katie Gill, Chloe Bridges, Ashley Argota, Jordan Pruitt, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, Jonathan Morgan Heit, Red Fraggle and more.
The event was in support of a great cause, the “LA Mission” which was created 70 years ago as a nonprofit organization serving the homeless living on the streets of downtown’s Skid Row. They have saved many lives and have had a profound impact on thousands of others by providing compassionate, humanitarian services to those in desperate need.
My friend Jennifer and I enjoyed out time at the event with our friends. David, from David Levi Entertainment was there posing with a few of the Fraggles. The event not only had Fraggle Rock characters for the holiday-winter theme but also brought in real snow and real “fake” snowflakes (they were made out of cornstarch so the flakes didn’t ruin the appetizers or drinks.) If you’re not used to the snow it could be cool, but if you grew up in, well, it is still cool!
