Celebrities galore including Guillermo Diaz (ABC Scandal) and community volunteers gave back in a big way at the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Celebration on Fifth Street/Skid Row. It was my very first visit to this particular downtown area and my heart was heavy. But it was a spectacular sight to see over 3500 meals served & prepared by Chef Ben Ford. Everyone worked in perfect harmony to feed the homeless… LA’s most forgotten men & women.
The streets were closed to create a lovely dining room it’s tables, flower arrangements and tablecloths. The Festival of Children Foundation, founded by Sandy Segerstrom Daniels (the REAL wife of Orange County) provided the most AMAZING Winter Wonderland tent filled with over 1000 toys for the kiddies, crowned princesses and Santa Claus!
OMG y’all everything was wonderful… I promise. But leaving the area trying to get back to my car was dreadful. Y’all know i just move to LA right?? Honey, I was in tears as I could not remember how to find the parking deck! You see… I was a little late getting there and rushed out of my car and ran towards the location without studying the area. This was a huge mistake and I paid dearly. There i was… with tons of camera equipment… wondering the streets of downtown LA. The only thing that keep me from totally going insane is… the area was loaded with security (due to the event). 30 minutes later… I finally found my car. UGH!!!
