A number of celebrities and tastemakers came out to lend support to former video vixen and model Rosa Acosta as her fashion boutique, CossaMia, held its first annual “Haute Holiday” toy and shoe drive in Los Angeles over the weekend.
Celebrity guests The Game, Trinidad James, Spectacular (of Pretty Ricky), Quarterbird, Young Lace, Kevin McCall, Lil Rome Diddy, fashion designer Geebin Flores and more joined Acosta at the holiday event benefiting local charity My Friend’s House LA foundation. Hundreds of toys and shoes were collected to donate to the foundation in hopes of giving local boys and girls and their families a very Merry Christmas.
Rapper Quarterbird, who was a co-sponsor of the event, set the evening off by arriving to the venue with a truckload of toys valued at more than $5,000. Spectacular then arrived shortly thereafter and also made a rather large donation to keep the giving spirit going for the night.
Guests in attendance enjoyed custom “Haute Holiday” drink concoctions at the open bar by Starrtenders, a delectable cuisine by celebrity Chef Bernard of Taste of the Caribbean L.A., photo ops on Santa’s lap and the evening’s soundtrack was curated by DJ Looney.
Founded by Tiffany A. Rose, My Friend’s House LA seeks to help provide life-sustaining staples that include food, clothing, toiletries and spiritual motivation to the economically disadvantaged. For more information on the organization, please visit www.myfriendshousela.org.
