"Squared" Necklace Auctioned at Star-Studded Red Tie Affair
Posted on April 19 2010
I got to attend the Annual Red Cross Red Tie Affair at the Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica this weekend. I donated my “Squared” necklace and some event appropriate earrings made of a red crystal cross on a silver fleur de lis for the silent auction. I also volunteered as a red carpet escort. The night featured a delicious dinner, live auction, and a speech by guest of honor Jada Pinkett-Smith for her work as a doctor on the hit TV series “Hawthorne.” The star-studded event also had in attendance Will Smith, Josh Duhamel, Fergie, and Buzz Aldrin- just to name a few. That’s enough name-dropping out of me (sorry)- but I have to admit, it was pretty exciting to be up close with all these big name celebs. It seems like there have been an unusually high number of natural disasters occuring lately, and any attention and fundraising that the celebrities of the Red Tie Affair can bring to such a wonderful organization that provides desperately needed disaster relief is a great thing.

BIG smiles from the ladies next to the man himself- Will Smith!
