The 9th Annual: Running with the Bulls: Cinco de Mayo Event Review – The Saga Continues for a Cause
Hollywood, Calif—Many celebrities walk the red carpet to attend the “9th Annual: Running with the Bulls: Cinco de Mayo” event at Rolling Stone Restaurant and Lounge in Hollywood to support status charities, ‘Shields for Families’ and ‘Children Uniting Nations’.
Every year this annual Cinco de Mayo event brings a ‘Euro-Mexicali’ swagger and this year proved to be no different. As the saga continues the 9th Annual Running with the Bulls: Cinco de Mayo event proved to be successful once again. There were mariachi bands, matador doormen, a photo booth, salsa dancing, kneed therapy, and a celebrity auction. This year celebrities, sponsors, and various forms of media poured into the Rolling Stone Restaurant and Lounge in support of the event. The sponsors for the event were Rolling Stone, Cover Girl Cosmetics and Velvet Angels Footwear.
‘Shields for Families’ is the largest family service provider in Southern Los Angeles. Its mission is to serve low-income families and assist and give them the tools they need in order to be successful, ranging from providing education, housing, to providing health care, nutrition and support. Children Uniting Nations’ is a pro-active non-profit organization benefiting today’s youth. Children Uniting Nations employees serve as role models, and support counselors, that give encouraging words of wisdom and guidance for children in today’s’ generation that are less fortunate. The mentors are compassionate and steadfast and believe in the organization and try to educate children on the importance of pursuing a higher education.
Celebrity attendees include: Faith Vans, Devon Bostick, Joyful Drake, Pooch Hall, Raven Symone, Eva Pigford, Angell Conwell, Robert Townsend, Ike Newton, Tank, Fasion Love, Nick Hogan, and Kelly G. A major purpose to this event was the charity auction. Celebrities were asked to bring a pair of slightly worn tennis shoes or shirt in exchange for a new pair from the sponsors. The slightly worn pair of shoes or shirt would then be auctioned off; and all of the generated proceeds from the auction were donated to ‘Shields for Families’ and ‘Children Uniting Nations’.
Celebrities walked the red carpet as press captured the moments using the Rolling Stone step and repeat, with sponsors Velvet Angels and Cover Girl, as the back drop. Quick interviews and remarks about the night’s event were discussed. As the venue quickly filled with individuals full of excitement and awe attendees proved to be very supportive of the charities and everything the night stood for.
