Earlier this week Samsung Electronics America, Inc. hired me to stop by the Samsung Hope For Children Gala to photograph the red carpet as well as help spread the word on the great cause. Over the past ten years, Samsung along with their retail, business, celebrity and athlete friends have helped raise more than $25 million for over 300 schools, community-based foundations, and charities throughout the U.S. The focus of the program is supporting children's education and health related issues but additionally through Samsung, tools and technology are provided to help empower young people in their communities. At this year's Gala, Samsung once again brought together retail and business partners but also their A-List friends for this important cause. Some of the notable attendees included President Bill Clinton who was honored with the 2011 Samsung Hope For Children Ambassador Award, Harry Connick Jr., John Legend, Jason Mraz, Branford Marsalis, Jennifer Lopez, Joe Torre, Bommer Esiason, Dan Marino, and Jimmy Johnson. Through out the night, guests and friends of Samsung tweeted with the hash tag #Hope4Children for an additional $.25 donated per tweet and the hash tag was trending within two hours of the event. It was a fantastic night for a good cause, for more info please visit
