A freak hurricane hits Los Angeles, causing man-eating sharks to be scooped up in water spouts and flooding the city with shark-infested seawater. Surfer and bar-owner Fin (Ziering) sets out with his friends Baz (Jaason Simmons) and Nova (Scerbo) to rescue his estranged wife April (Reid) and teenage daughter Claudia (Aubrey Peeples). He succeeds, but April’s boyfriend is eaten by the sharks. The group meets up with Matt (Chuck Hittinger), the adult son of Fin and April, who is in flying school. They decide to try to stop the threat of the incoming “sharknadoes” by tossing bombs into them from helicopters. [Wiki]

So the Get Festive with Frankie B. and Kitson held at Kitson in West Hollywood didn’t raise money, it didn’t benefit an organization but rather was just a party with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a manicure booth put on by Daniella Clarke, found of Frankie B.

Lost up in the drafts was the 2nd Annual Inspiration Women Awards to Benefit The Susan G. Komen For The Cure held at Royce Hall at UCLA in Westwood, California. Well, given that we’re a few days late in reporting this is there really anything we can say? So yeah, it was an award show and we don’t know who got recognized but all in all this was to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer, and that in itself is pretty important to note.
