On Friday March 13th Hockey Hall of Fame Inductee Luc Robitaille and artist/author wife Stacia will be honored at the “Golden Ticket” Show. The Event, to be held at the Avalon Hotel (previously The Palace) at 1735 Vine Street in Los Angeles, will benefit LA County foster youth and their families.
At the forefront of the entertainment portion of the evening: “Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas” highlighting some of the most noted female impersonators embodying only the most renowned and idolized entertainers of our time, from Joan Rivers, to Diana Ross, Cher, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Katie Perry, Liza Minnelli, Reba McIntyre, Bette Midler, to Tina Turner and beyond, there will be something for everyone! The evening’s Host: 17 time EMMY winner and FOX 11 LA news anchor Christine Devine.
Robitaille and wife Stacia are no strangers to charitable endeavors. In 2007 the former left wing and current President of Business Operations for the Los Angeles Kings and Mrs. Robitaille herself established Echoes of Hope, a non-profit organization; dedicated to fostering optimism and opportunities for emancipated youth and youth in need by affording, support, love, information, and skills needed to reach their highest potential!
According to Cops 4 Causes President Founder and LA County Deputy Sheriff Christopher Ladavazo, “This program is committed to fostering a network of support for at risk youth, including Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) by providing life-changing connections with police, fire, and military professionals for both groups to attend theatre with theatre organizations like Pasadena Playhouse. The support of the L.A. County Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) and our theatre community in Los Angeles has been amazing. We are looking forward to working together to provide foster youth with enrichment opportunities to experience the magic of live word-class theater.”
“Luc and Stacia Robitaille truly embody the mission of our Golden Ticket program and have empowered countless foster youth via their Echoes of Hope foundation. As an organization representing 1st Responders, we are thrilled to have Luc and Stacia join us at our Golden Ticket benefit and to honor them both for their tireless efforts to help foster youth achieve great heights. They have been strong advocates for foster youth and we are honored to have them be a part of this special night to help support LA County foster youth.”
On March 7th Robitaille will become the seventh Los Angeles sports figure to be commemorated with a statue in Star Plaza at Staples Center.
Proceeds from the evening’s festivities will benefit Cops 4 Causes “Golden Ticket” initiative. Cops 4 Causes is the first non-profit organization established by law enforcement initiated in order to underscore its emerging philanthropic endeavors. “Our organization is comprised of all levels of peace officers, public safety officials, and friends and family of law enforcement who seek to raise funds and awareness to give back to our communities, support our military troops and veterans and to aid families of law enforcement officers killed or gravely disabled in the line of duty,” Ladavazo will add.
