On Saturday, April 30, The Eden Roc Renaissance in Miami Beach hosted one of the most anticipated charity events of the year–The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup. During the event-filled two-day excursion, celebrities and locals alike join together with children for a scavenger hunt throughout the city of Miami. For the second year in a row, Eva Longoria, along with Haute 100 Miami members Loren and JR Ridinger, helped to co-chair the charitable event. Market America alone raised more than $125,000 towards the Rally for Kids with cancer foundation, and pulled out a win for this year’s cup. Congratulations to Michael Yo, Amber Ridinger, Duane McLaughlin, and the rest of team Market America!
The Rally kicked off on Friday night at the “The Qualifiers” Celebrity Draft Party, courtesy of GREY GOOSE Vodka, where every team’s driver had the opportunity to draft their celebrity navigator. Participating celebrities included Dr. Bill Dorfman from “Extreme Makeover,” Actors Fernando Carrillo, Ivan Sergei, Evelyn Lozada of “Basketball Wives,” and “Sopranos” star Jamie-Lynn Sigler, and others.
The fun continued the following day at the Start Your Engines Brunch, which kicked off the scavenger hunt and ended with the The Winner’s Circle gala dinner where participants, sponsors, enjoyed a live auction, performance by Duane McLaughlin and the Miami Children’s Choir, and awards ceremony.
As evidenced by the photos below, everyone had a great time laughing and enjoying themselves all the while contributing to a very important cause.
