Fit Kids Founder Ashley Hunter welcomed a sellout crowd at the inaugural Fit Kids Lunch, featuring platinum-selling recording artist Chynna Phillips and her husband, actor Billy Baldwin. More than 250 Fit Kids supporters packed Sharon Heights Country Club for the April 30 event.
Among the highlights were Dr. Lawrence Piro moderating a moving, insightful discussion with Chynna and Billy on topics such as healthful eating, quality time with children, and the challenges of family life…all in an extraordinarily relatable and revealing fashion.
Chynna performed You’re in Love, followed by an emotional rendition of California Dreamin‘ — the song her parents wrote, performed, and made famous as members of The Mamas and the Papas.
Then she roused the crowd to clap and dance along to a version of Hold On from the hit film Bridesmaids.
Meanwhile, Billy brought an engaging, up-close-and-personal approach to fundraising that helped the event net enough to launch 25 new programs next school year that will impact more than 5,000 underserved youth throughout the Bay Area and Los Angeles.
Just imagine the positive impact Fit Kids and its supporters will bring to 5,000 more children like Briana, the girl featured in this video produced by Emmy Award-winning sportscaster Mindi Bach, which debuted at the lunch.
