Athletes and Aces in Newport Beach

The annual Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center Athletes and Aces Casino Night was held at the Island Hotel's Palm Garden in Newport Beach. The event is hosted by baseball great Robb Nenn and his wife Jendy, and includes many other athletes that contribute to such a great cause. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to shoot this event because it's a star-studded event and filled with fun.

Charitable Anaheim Ducks Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Samuel Pahlsson pose with the Stanley Cup.



Signed sports memorabilia were donated by the sponsors and sold via a silent auction. "Jiggy" so happened to be in the background so I quickly snapped a shot of this Ducks jersey.

Robb and Jendy speaking to the crowd. I admire athletes who take the time out to really give back to the community. You can tell how much they care by all the time and effort they put into it.



Darin Erstad signs the harley that was sold off during the live auction.



Jim Everett has a good laugh on the bike.



Darin and Jessica Erstad, another great couple who help with this cause.
