Ronny Turiaf Joins the Fight Against Child Abuse

Ronny Turiaf and fellow athletes Chris Bosh, Chris Paul, Lawrence Jackson, and Kevin Love join forces with Ties.com and Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA) to present Ties for a Cause.

The campaign seeks to raise funds for PCAA’s vital cause to protect children from abuse. The athletes put on their creative caps and worked with Ties.com to design neckwear reflecting their unique fashion sense. The one-of-a-kind ties will be sold throughout the month of April to raise funds for PCAA.

“Any organization that commits to protecting and improving the rights of children is one that I am proud to be associated with,” said Turiaf. “I’m very passionate about fashion, so for me to get involved in this particular project with Ties.com, was a no-brainer.”

Check out Ties for a Cause in the press. And be sure to buy your tie before they are gone!

Ronny Turns 30!

Ronny Turiaf turned 30 in style last night at a private red-carpet event held in his honor at the Beverly Hills Mansion.  The event, produced and hosted by IVC Global Sports & Entertainment, was sponsored by Haute Living and THVPR.  The exclusive guest list was attended by some of Ronny’s closest friends and teammates including Blake Griffin, Matt Barnes, Chauncey Billups, Chris Paul, Jamal Crawford, Lamar Odom, DeAndre Jordan, Ryan Hollins, Caron Butler, Eric Blesdoe, and Trey Thompkins.

One of the highlights of the night was a special fashion show for the birthday boy, a fashion enthusiast.   The show featured designers Ilja, Ready to Fish, Marlies Dekkers, Anine Bing, and ROCO by Rodrigo Otazu.

No birthday party would be complete without a birthday cake, and Ronny’s party was no exception.   The star-studded event culminated with 30 glowing candles atop a cake fashioned after a man’s Louis Vuitton bag.
