Chanel and Torrey Smith celebrated family and friends at the 49ers’ fourth annual Cocktails and Couture event. The charity effort benefited students in the San Francisco 49ers Academy and featured Chanel with her son, TJ, on the pink carpet.
“A couple things I loved yesterday,” Chanel reflected on Monday. “Hanging out with the @huggies crew to collect diapers for families in need.” The celebrity mom couldn’t get enough of her little one’s “fake smile.”
The San Francisco 49ers Academy seeks to help impoverished children living in East Palo Alto. While it is true that Silicon Valley is one of the most wealthiest regions in the nation, many children whose parents do not hold significant positions in the tech industry are living in poverty because of the high cost of living. The San Franscisco 49ers Academy seeks to bridge the gap between the filthy rich and low-income residents by giving kids the essentials that they need to thrive in society.
According to the organization’s website,
“The 49ers Academy provides adolescent students with a community of support empowering them to be engaged in school, to reach their full potential and to make positive contributions to our world – one student at a time.”
Chanel and Torrey Smith were two of many celebrity couples in attendance at Sunday’s event. Little TJ accompanied his parents and did a bit of hob-knobbing with fellow stars. The youngster even took the runway with his parents!
TJ is Torrey and Chanel Smith’s oldest child. The couple welcomed their second son in June. Check out TJ’s catwalk showing here!
