Easter Seals – 63rd Annual Rogers Conn Smythe Sports Celebrity Dinner

 

The 63rd Annual Rogers Conn Smythe Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction took place on Thursday, February 27th, 2014 at the Toronto’s famous Royal York Hotel. They had a list of solid 2014 Celebrity Guests who gave their valuable time and gave back to the communities in support of this special charitable event. In fact, some of these celebrities such as all-time Blue Jays great, Carlos Delgado, specifically flew in Toronto so he could be part of this special occasion. The list of celebrity guests include Carlos Delgado (Baseball Player), Geraldine Heaney (Hockey Player), James Hinchcliffe (Indy Car Race Car Driver), Perdita Felicien (Hurdler), Dave Stewart (Baseball Player), Scott Milanovich (CFL Coach), Gary Roberts (Hockey Player), Matt Hughes (Martial Artist), Stefan Charles (NFL Player), and Natalie Spooner (Female Gold Olympian). This year’s dinner host was Gerry Dee!

Special thanks to the Easter Seals Committee for the invitation and our crew and I attended the media conference where I got to interview some of these celebrities as well as the Easter Seals Ambassadors about being part of this great charitable organizations and the meaning of giving back and in support of the youth and young adults in Ontario with a physical disability.

Stay tuned for my later publications on the interviews I had with some of these celebrities!

Here are the photos we took at the Media Conference and photos of my interviews with these celebrities:

Legos – Hobbit Movie

 

When my friends posted photos of the Hobbit action figures in Lego forms on Facebook, I immediately had to ask her where the Lego were located. She told me it was at the Eaton Centre. I love Lego! It’s one of my favourite toys when I was a child. The Lego pieces allowed me to build whatever I wanted to build.

So…this past Wednesday, I walked over to the Eaton Centre and I saw a life-size Hobbit Lego House and recognized some of the Hobbit action figures. I got to say, they were very cute and they did look like the characters in the movie. I thought the marketing team for the Hobbit movie did a great job. It’s the holiday season, lots of kids go to the shopping mall. It clearly got my attention that the Hobbit movie will be out soon. Now, that’s effective marketing. You may want to test your luck to see if this awesome Lego display is still around during the rest of the Christmas holidays, which I think it will. Be sure to check it out if you are around the area.

A little sad note though, as I reviewed one of the Lego photos that I took, it also mark the last Christmas I will be seeing the Sears store at the Eaton Centre since Sears will be closing down this location. It gave me lots of great memories in the past.

Lego House also reminded me of Ed Sheehran‘s track “Lego House“. Let’s check out his music video below.

I wish everyone have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! Just like the Lego house, I hope everyone can continue to build something they would like to see in the new year of 2014 in their lives!
