Ill be there too. My mission: record the conversation between Roberts and Ice T.

The auction items available at Unbridled Eve, which benefits Blessings in a Backpack, The Les Turner ALS Foundation and the American Cancer Society are equally impressive: game tickets to the LA Lakers’ owner’s suite, Chicago Cubs VIP Experience, tickets to the Masters Golf Tournament, VIP Indy 500 Experience and original art.
