We continue our charity and fundraising event posts with another event of which we have never posted all the pictures before. This is all a reminder that there is just more than 1 week left to donate and take part in the raffle for the trip and set visit to Hawaii. This is the link to the information again.

Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii is a grassroots, local nonprofit organization run by a small team of dedicated staff and supported by passionate volunteers, just like you. We inspire local communities to care for their coastlines through fun, hands-on beach cleanups. We also coordinate educational programs, a voluntourism program, waste diversion services, public awareness campaigns and help others run their own beach cleanups.
Some Trivia of the evening
- There is not much information about the event, apart from these pictures and some of the titbits shared by fans who attended.
- Alex brought his family to the event – it included Malia with the 3 month old Lion as well as their other two boys Saxon and Spike. (Of course his assistant Kirsten Rowsey and well as his bodyguard were also there.)
- The pictures were taken by official photographers and the guest were not allowed to take their own pictures.
- Alex was also one of the judges of the Trashion show.
Judging by the pictures, the event looked like a lot of fun for Alex, his family and the guests.
I am always amazed at how easy Alex make it all look.
To keep smiling and giving everybody a quality moment of his time …..
