During Wrestlemania week, WWE helped the people who were affected the the terrible Hurricane Sandy. The party was co-hosted by Vince McMahon and Sean Combs. I’ve added 3 new stunning photos of Layla from the Sandy Relief Party. Layla looks absolteuly gorgeous in her black dress. Be sure to check out the pictures.
Co-hosted by WWE Chairman and CEO Mr. McMahon and Sean “Diddy” Combs, and boasting a guest list that included New York City MayorMichael Bloomberg, New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Hoda Kotb, the live auction saw guests cast bids on an array of one-of-a-kind, personalized experiences, including the chance to rub shoulders one-on-one with WWE Superstars and celebrities alike.
The evening began with a red-carpet ceremony hosted by WWE Diva Natalya and continued seamlessly into the live auction — co-hosted by Joe Buck and The Miz — before shifting gears once again into a VIP fete where Questlove of the Roots spinned tunes throughout the famed Gotham hotspot.
All proceeds will benefit The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, both of which continue to provide assistance in the wake of the storm.
WWE 2013 Hall of Fame InducteeMick Foley recalled how the storm hit home for him. “I had a personal encounter where I ended up donating my dining room furniture. I thought I was just finding a good home for it. I didn’t realize the recipients had lost everything in Sandy,” he said.
“It wasn’t just furniture for them; it was symbolic of a new start. My family had trees down blocking our road. We were without electricity for 10 days, but other than that, we were fine. Other families are still struggling in Sandy’s aftermath. It’s really important to have these events to remind people of that struggle.”
Excited about being part of the night, Dolph Ziggler said, “It’s great kicking off WrestleMania week by giving back to the victims of Sandy from New York and New Jersey. It’s cool to bring more attention to this great cause.” When asked if he had his eye on any items at the auction, Mr. Money in the Bank replied, “Hopefully there will be something like a trip for two to not be around The Miz. I’ll bid on that,” he joked.
WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn was also part of the evening’s festivities. “I’m very honored to be part of this. I think this is a great thing that we’re doing, auctioning off WWE and celebrity experiences for a great cause,” she said.
Sports reporter Michelle Beadle weighed in on WrestleMania being in the N.Y. Metro area. “As much as I wanted to go last year, I just couldn’t. When they said it’s going to be in New Jersey next, I said, ‘That’s it. I’m there! It’s my backyard.’
“It was such a traumatic moment for this side of the country. I love the fact that this night is about helping those people out, people whose houses are completely gone and they still need help,” Beadle said. Regarding the showdown between WWE Champion The Rock and John Cena at WrestleMania, she declared, “I truly believe Cena wins it.”
Staten Island was full of stars on Thursday morning when WWE Superstars paid a visit to Edwin Markham Intermediate School for the latest Be a STAR rally. Flying the flag for WWE were Layla, The Miz and Josh Mathews. They were joined by comedian Judah Friedlander of NBC’s “30 Rock.” They all took to the stage and spread the message of peace and tolerance among the young students in attendance.
“There’s nothing more important to WWE than giving back to the community,” Mathews said.
Friedlander talked about how important it is for the children to help each other out in the face of bullying.
“People think bullies are the tough guy,” he said. “They’re not. They’re scared. The non-bullies outnumber the bullies. If everyone says something, the bullying will stop.”
Layla explained cyberbullying to the sixth- to eighth-grade students and how they can combat it.
“Ignore it, don’t reply to their posts. Tell a trusted adult,” the former Divas Champion said.
She also had the kids turn to their left and promise the person next to them that they would help put an end to bullying in their school within the next year.
“Everyone is made different in this world,” Layla said. “Embrace what makes you different from everybody else, because that is what makes you special.”
The Miz then took the stage to share a personal story of how he dealt with bullies as a youngster. When trying out for a basketball team, he was teased for being too slow and short. But he used the negativity as motivation, working hard and making the team.
“If anyone ever tells you that you can’t follow your dream, believe in yourself,” he said. “Use the negativity to fuel your fire.”
He then issued a challenged to the kids to help stop bullying.
“Anytime you have something negative about someone, transform it into something good,” The Miz said. “Do something positive every day for someone else and I guarantee it’s going to be an amazing thing.”
BAYSIDE, N.Y. — WWE Superstars brought smiles to children’s faces at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children as part of WrestleMania Week in New York and New Jersey.
R-Truth, Zack Ryder, Layla and Elvis Duran, the host of Z100 FM’s “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show,” visited children and teens at the hospital, where they posed for photos, signed autographs and distributed WWE toys. “It’s great to be in New York and New Jersey and giving back to my home, my community,” said Ryder, a proud Long Island native.
The Superstars met more than 40 teens at the hospital’s iHeart room after visiting four floors. Jeffrey Frerichs, president and CEO of the hospital, explained, “This is one of the highlights of the year for the kids. It’s what we try to do to enhance what their normal day would be. They get ecstatic when they see celebrities. We are extraordinary grateful. We are extraordinary honored. It’s great to have new friends.”
It wasn’t just a meaningful experience for the kids, either. “We were singing and dancing with some of the kids. It was a lot of fun,” Ryder explained. “It was a great inspiration,” Layla gushed. “The biggest lesson I learned today was that these kids have the best spirits and the best souls. I met a young girl Kamaya and she took her first walk today.”
R-Truth agreed it was a great experience, “We put some smiles on faces today. It’s for a good cause. You always feel good to give back. And today we gave back.” Layla summed up a great visit, saying, “Just knowing we made them smile today made all the difference.”
St. Mary’s Hospital for Children specializes in treating kids with medically complex conditions and special needs. It’s part of the St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, which is a not-for-profit organization that offers intensive rehabilitation, specialized care and education to these patients in the New York metro area.
