Tiger Woods: “It was never easy to begin with”

Tiger Woods was in town talking education and golf. At a private luncheon hosted at Cafe Milano we stopped in to join Bob Johnson and Franco Nuschese for a lunch honoring Wood’s foundation.

The Tiger Woods Foundation provides college-access programs to underserved kids. Over the last six years the group has served students in Wards 6 and 7 and provided scholarships for 25 DC based students so they can attend top universities. TWF has also awarded grants to 125 youth and education programs across the district.
It was neat to see another side of the golf great. Usually you see him talking post tournament. This was a relaxed luncheon where he started off by saying RGIII was gonna take over this town. When asked about his golf game.. and changing his swing, Tiger said “I haven’t had same consistencies I like but it just takes time.” He also admitted his past success was never easy to begin with. “Even when I played my best it was never easy,” Woods told the crowd.

The pro golfer also got back to his roots. Sharing the reason he changed his golf foundation into an education foundation. Going back to how he was raised.. a military father and a strict mother. He called his mom “the enforcer” and admitted he was afraid of her. Because of his mom education was always his priority.

After 9/11 he asked himself what would he have left behind if he had died in those buildings. Soon after Woods said he called his father Earl and came to the conclusion to make his golf foundation an education foundation to help kids in need. “A lot of kids are left behind… no kids should be left behind,” Woods said.

The TWF focuses on STEM which stands for Science, Tech, Engineering and Mathematics. Woods adds a good part of the program is that after the students get into college they have a mentor who is available to help them 24/7. Woods adds it’s not all about financial help. This way “they are not alone.”

Woods will be here June 25 through July 1st to host his annual At&T National Golf Tournament and $6.5 million dollar purse. Photos by Tiger Woods Foundation.

Nerd Prom Weekend Recap

8 parties and who knows how many dresses (and 1 jumper!) White House Correspondents Dinner weekend is over. I’m so glad this only happens once a year. It is exciting and utterly exhausting all at the same time. Here’s a sampling of where we were.. who we saw and how much fun it was seeing the world of politics and Hollywood collide.

We kicked things off Thursday night at the Ritz-Carlton Washington DC for a private dinner hosted by The Creative Coalition, Elle Magazine and Lanmark Technologies .The awesome Alex Wagner of MSNBC and Norah O’Donnell from CBS were honored as leading women in media. Thank you to April Firoozabadi for the wonderful fashion styling for the weekend!  (Photos by Allison Priebe Brooks, Pamela Sorensen, Paul Moretti)

And finally “the day after” arrived! I still had to do the shows Sunday morning. David Gregory joined us on set and said he too was feeling a little tired after a long night. It was good to know I was not alone in having to work the next day. After the show it was off to the Hay-Adams. John McLaughlin was hosting his famous Sunday brunch on the roof. The view was great as were the eggs benedict!

Swimming in the Fishbowl.. and getting bounced

Oh my gills. We took a break from the daily grind of the night shift at NBC4 to take a swim in the fish bowl at U street hotspot Lost Society.
Mediabistro hosted a FishbowlDC Party which drew a mix of news anchors, political reporters and popular bloggers. I finally got the chance to meet the bowl’s big wig Betsy Rothstein who is so so tiny. Standing next to her I felt pregnant again. Guests enjoyed fun finger foods like chicken and waffles on a stick … washing it down with Belvedere cocktails. Notables spotted included Fox News Contributor Tucker Carlson, White House Correspondent Major Garrett, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlso and Washington Post’s Erik Wemple. There were a lot more too… you can see the list and more pictures here. Take Note: Don’t show up to a FishbowlDC Party without your ID…  a popular PR maven and blogger gets bounced out of the bowl… read the funny recollection

‘Wetopia’ helps the world

I guess I’ve always been a gamer at heart.  Yeah that’s me and my makeshift Luigi costume when Super Mario FIRST came out in the 80’s. How things have changed. Gaming has been taken to a whole new level as popularity of sharing the experience explodes online.

WeTopia: In Game Coins for Real Charity

I wanted to tell you about a new game called Wetopia The motto is simple: Social gaming for social good. The more you play it on Facebook.. the more you help kids in need. It’s connected with Save the Children among other charities.

Ellen Degeneres is a partner and I’m proud to say the founder, Lincoln Brown is the brother of my gal pal Pamela. Unlike other games on Facebook where you make pretend farms and so on… people who play WeTopia actually make a real impact on causes. No fake money here… as a player you earn currency called “joy” and spend it on projects like planting trees or helping schools.
