(December 22, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA) – Charitable Hollywood-based celebs braved Los Angeles’ winter storms today to bring early holiday cheer to homeless families in transition. Star comedian TOMMY DAVIDSON and veteran broadcaster PAT O’BRIEN got together a half-dozen stars and celebrated an early Christmas at P.A.T.H. Partners’ (People Assisting the Homeless) residential center with abundant gifts for the children, moms and dads, an array of festive food, seasonal music and every delicious beverage Hansen’s Sodas has in their arsenal including Monster Teas, energy drinks and juice boxes for the kids. STERLING BEAUMON (“Lost”/”Criminal Minds”) and AVA ALLAN (“True Jackson”) led a cadre of teen stars who brought endless gifts for their younger counterparts. Thousands of dollars of donated gifts were distributed to all.
“Just seeing all the smiles of the kids who live at PATH when we handed out the toy & books and watching the excitement in their eyes as they opened them, will make all our holidays brighter,” says Pat O’Brien.
Tommy Davidson added, “I made a deal with all the moms at the party who are currently living at PATH. They were so thankful I and my friends could bring them an early Christmas that I had them promise me that next year, when they’re living in their own apartments and fully integrated back into society, they come help me come bring hope, happiness and positivity to the residents living at PATH in December 2011.”
Paul Palacios, Marketing Director of Hansen’s Beverages, provided the refreshment bar.
