Goldie Hawn declares herself “hockey mom” in front of Kevin Sorbo, Tie Domi and Kelly Carlson at glitzy SickKids fundraiser

Goldie Hawn declares herself “hockey mom” in front of Kevin Sorbo, Tie Domi and Kelly Carlson at glitzy SickKids fundraiser

Just when we thought we wouldn’t attend a party serving bite-sized burgers for at least another year, we hit up Muzik on Friday night for Goldie Hawn’s cocktail reception for the Rally for Kids With Cancer Scavenger Cup. Celebrity guests were teamed up with luxury car owners, who each raised at least $25,000 for the SickKids Foundation. It was nice to be at a party where jeans and hot pants were the attire of choice and the food was a sampling of dishes from some of Toronto’s best restaurants (Blowfish, we’ll see you and your salmon-mango roll again very soon). The biggest money raisers had first pick of celebrities; NBA alum Jerome Williams, playboys Monica Leigh and Stephanie Glasson, actress Kelly Carlson and her boyfriend Tie Domi were among the first to get drafted. Thankfully, about halfway through, they chose celebrities at random so there was no embarrassing those who got picked last. Highlights for us included getting touched by Hercules himself, Kevin Sorbo (who was so nice, posing for pictures with people), and seeing Celebrity Duets winner Alfonso Ribeiro (you may remember him as Carleton on Fresh Prince of Bel Air), who did not do the Carleton dance.

Goldie Hawn spoke of her reasons for getting involved in the charity, mentioning that her mother, who died of cancer in 1994, taught her the importance of giving back and helping others. Later, she lightened things up, saying, “I’m going to wave the flag and say ‘start your engines, guys!’” to hoots and hollers from the males in the crowd.Finally, Hawn gave us a reason to do what we’ve been waiting to do all week.“You know, I’m a hockey mom, too,” she said, “so we’re not all the same,” thereby allowing us to finally insert a Sarah Palin reference (and link!) in this news feed.—Melita Kuburas"
