I was beyond grateful that Jamie Lee Curtis came to my store for this event. I adore her! She is an amazing person who gives so much of her time to help others. Recently we met one morning for breakfast to sign Michael Myers masks (from the movie Halloween) that she was using for a charity benefit. Then I saw her again at a Children's Hospital Los Angeles event, and we spoke about Mauricio and I becoming a First Family at CHLA.
Mauricio being sick as a child is part of why we got involved with CHLA, but it's not the only reason. I think any parent can imagine how difficult it would be to watch your child suffer. What these children go through and what their parents go through is truly gut-wrenching. To think that we can be a tiny part in helping these children makes me feel happy. The night was a success and everyone enjoyed themselves.
