Nick Lachey, 3-Time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson Host Second Annual Super Skins Weekend
|Multi-platinum recording artist, Nick Lachey, and three-time reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Jimmie Johnson, are teaming up once again for their second annual Super Skins Weekend, held in Tampa, Florida during Super Bowl XLIII. |
This year’s Super Skins Weekend will consist of the Super Skins Celebrity Golf Classic held on Saturday, January 31st, as well as the Super Skins Kick Off Party on Friday, January 30th at the Hula Bay Club. Tickets for the party are available to the public at www.superskins.com. Proceeds from Super Skins Weekend will benefit multiple charities.
"Super Skins kicked off with a big bang last year and we’re confident year two is going to be even better," stated Johnson. "Nick and I designed Super Skins to use the energy surrounding Super Bowl weekend to not only have a great time, but to raise a lot of money for some really worthy causes."
"Last years Super Skins proved to be one of the highlights of my year and a tradition we hope to continue for many years to come," stated Lachey.
Fifth Third Bank, a mainstay of Lachey’s beloved hometown, has signed on as Primary Sponsor of Super Skins. "It’s no secret that my heart is in Cincinnati and I’m so proud that Cincinnati’s own Fifth Third Bank is a partner to help raise funds to drive to some very worthy organizations," added Lachey.
Last year’s Super Skins weekend raised over $400,000 for multiple charities including The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, The Baseball Assistance Team, Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Nick Lachey Foundation and the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. Celebrities like Jerry Rice, Jason Sehorn, Entourage's Kevin Dillon, Joey Fatone, Geoff Stultz, Justin Bartha, Cincinnati Reds’ Ken Griffey Jr., Adam Dunn, NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz, Falcons QB Chris Redman, Baltimore Ravens, QB Kyle Boller and NASCAR’s Kurt Busch were among the celebrity participants in the Super Skins Celebrity Golf Classic.
"Fifth Third is thrilled to be a part of this event," said Brian Keenan, President and CEO, Fifth Third Bank - Tampa Bay Affiliate. "It is an honor to partner with this amazing group of celebrities to give back to so many worthy causes."
The Hula Bay Club hosts the kickoff to the Super Skins Celebrity Golf Classic tonight. The celebrity guest list includes Nick Lachey, Jimmy Johnson, Dave Navarro, Jerry Rice, Jason Sehorn, Vanessa Minnillo, Joey Fatone, and Drew Lachey ($150 at www.hulabayclub.com or call (813) 837-4852).
Nick Lachey spoke to "Extra" about the recent media attention ex-wife Jessica Simpson has received about her weight, saying, "I wish her nothing but the best and I hope she's happy -- whatever size that comes in."
The singer is shocked by the story's media coverage, admitting, "I can't believe it's this big of a story and people are making such a huge deal about it. I'm never ceased to be amazed by people's reactions to things."
Lachey, 35, and Simpson, 28, were married from 2002 to 2006 and starred in the successful MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" for three seasons.
Lachey spoke to "Extra" while in Tampa for the Super Skins Celebrity Golf Classic. The star is raising money for the Nick Lachey Foundation and Jimmy Johnson Foundation. Lachey says, "The point is for everybody to have a chance to earn some valuable money for their charity... Everyone who played last year, had such a great time, [they] came back this year....We're very fortunate."
Nick and NASCAR champ Jimmie Johnson will host a bevy of athletes, actors, musicians and models in the golf classic on January 31 -- and last year's Super Skins weekend raised more than $400,000 for multiple charities! To get involved in this amazing weekend, go to SuperSkinGolf.com.

Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo, and Nick’s mother Cate dined at Stanley’s in Sherman Oaks, CA yesterday (January 25).
After feasting on their famous artichoke appetizer, Chinese chicken salad and rotisserie chicken, the trio waited for Nick’s BMW to pull up and rather than offering Cate the front seat, Vanessa casually sat shotgun while Cate took the back seat!
Attention all young people planning to be married: Do you think that you and your spouse-to-be are the next Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey?We're not asking whether you sing. Actually, we're not asking at all: MTV is. The music video network is on the lookout for two new fish to place in its marital fishbowl. Recording star Simpson and her ex-hubbie, formerly of the boy band 98 Degrees, entertained viewers for four seasons as the stars of the unscripted "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica," which was canceled in 2005.
Now the network wants to revive the concept, but ditch its celebrity component. If you're about to become a Mr. or Mrs., and you don't mind inviting MTV's worldwide audience along for the ride, then you and your significant other might be the stars-in-waiting of "True Life: I'm a Newlywed."

Stars such as Lindsay Lohan, Snoop Dogg and Ashton Kuchter are heading to Florida for the US Super Bowl.
Carmen Electra and Jenny McCarthy will also be in town to host a party which they promise will be "sexy and fun".
The annual Leather And Laces party is also hosted by US reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
Carmen, who hosted a party with Jenny at the Super Bowl last year in Phoenix, said it was a party for everyone - even those who don't like sport.
"I think sports fans are very enthusiastic, so during the Super Bowl there's a lot of energy, a lot of people. It makes for a much more fun, lively party.
"It's going to be sexy and fun, and it's always going to be crazy at the Super Bowl," she said.
Kevin Costner is also hosting party, at which his band will play, to raise money for charity.
"It's clearly not the need for attention. I've had enough of that for a lifetime," he said.
His gig is going head-to-head with gigs by hip-hop artist T-Pain and rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, along with an affair crawling with Playboy hotties called Models And Bottles, and an event at a science museum hosted by Nelly.
Another party at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is hosted by Kevin Dillon of Entourage fame, and Jessica Simpson's ex-husband Nick Lachey is also hosting an event.

"Because I Told You So"
98 Degrees Band Founder Urges Youth to Become Organ Donors and Provide the Gift of LifeNEW YORK, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Jeff Timmons, the founder of the pop band 98 Degrees, kicked off 2009 with a New Year's Resolution for all of his fans -- - sign up today to become organ donors offering the gift of life.

Named the celebrity spokesperson for the newly formed Heather Trew Foundation, Timmons plans a series of public service announcements for radio and television to get the word out about organ donation.
"Jeff is excited to be part of the Heather Trew Foundation," said Ruben Malaret, Jeff's Manager and President of New York-based Celebrity PR. "He is going to reach out to his fan base and youth all over the world to speak about the importance of becoming an organ donor. More importantly, he will also encourage them to share the decision with their family and friends to make sure their wishes are granted at the time of need."
The Heather Trew Foundation was created by Dwight and Judy Trew the parents of Heather Trew, to educate the youth of the world, about the importance of being an organ donor. Heather Trew was an organ donation recipient early in her life due to eating undercooked meat at a picnic. While she unfortunately lost her battle against e-coli, her legacy lives on encouraging others to donate organs for those in need. Meanwhile, the foundation has also dedicated itself to urging Congress to adopt stricter policies in making sure beef is better checked for harmful bacteria such as e-coli.
Timmons is working on recording several public service announcements for the Heather Trew Foundation that will soon be running on television and radio stations worldwide. He is also in the process of producing his second solo CD, currently planned for release in the summer of this year.
More information about the Heather Trew Foundation -- including handy information on becoming an organ donor and donor cards printable directly from the organization's website -- can be found on the web at www.heathertrewfoundation.org. More details on Jeff Timmons, including information on his partnership with the Heather Trew Foundation can be found on his website at www.jefftimmons.com.

Jeff Timmons was in Boston with us for the Plymouth Rox Concert. During his visit, Rob Dixon, (Executive Director) and Jeff Gulko (Director of Development), gave us a very eye opening tour and overview of the Project Rise program and facility. I’ve never seen a class full of children so focused on learning. In the middle of summer too. It’s amazing that a program like this that is so beneficial to Boston’s youth doesn’t get more publicity.

ABOUT PROJECT RISE
Spearheaded by Executive Director, Rob Dixon
Project RISE was founded during the summer of 1993 as an experimental pilot program on the Thayer Academy campus in Braintree, MA. The Program focused on providing academic remediation in Mathematics, Language Arts, Multicultural history and Science to 18 sixth through eight grade academically high risk African American males in the Boston Public Schools.
The goal of the program was to motivate these students to believe they could succeed. In the effort to accomplish this goal, students were assigned to small classes and were given individualized and remedial instruction over a seven week period. In addition, students participated in cultural awareness classes to encourage them to appreciate their unique heritage. These classes, coupled with the concentration on academics, helped to raise the students self esteem. As a result, these students reentered their perspective schools in the fall of 1993 with improved attitudes about their culture and intellectual ability. This change in attitude positively impacted their academic performance. Learn More…. (http://www.projectrise.com)
