LOS ANGELES — On June 22, Echoes Of Hope, the charitable organization found by Luc and Stacia Robitaille, held a poker tournament fundraiser at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live in Downtown Los Angeles.
Echoes Of Hope grew out of Luc and Stacia Robitaille’s Shelter For Serenity, which provided assistance victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. Echoes Of Hope “…strives to awaken the spirit of hope in the lives of at-risk and emancipated foster youth by providing the resources, knowledge, skills, love, and support they need to reach their full potential,” according to the organization’s web site.
At their annual All In For Hope poker tournament, celebrities and athletes played in the tournament, as did Kings alumni such as Noah Clarke, Pete Demers (retired head athletic trainer), Nelson Emerson, Daryl Evans, Mark Hardy, Sean O’Donnell and Jamie Storr.
