Setting A Good Example

The newest newlyweds in Hollywood, Jessica Alba and Cash Warren (who were married in a super-secret courthouse wedding ceremony in Beverly Hills, CA on Monday), made their first public appearance as husband and wife at the Youth Mentoring Connection's annual Celebration of Mentoring Awards and Gala at the Beverly Hills Hotel last night. Here are photos of happy couple smiling and applauding the honorees (ie. some of Hollywood's biggest influencers in media, fashion, sports and entertainment -- Cash, himself, was among the honorees) who were recognized for their work with mentoring youths at the event:

This from the event's press release: Honorees from the sports and entertainment industries include producer Cash Warren, NBA point guard Baron Davis and professional skateboarder Stacey Peralta. Debrah Constance, who founded "A Place Called Home" youth center in South LA will be honored as a true Community Hero. The organization will also be handing out its first Visionary Award to YMC Founding Board Member and President & CEO of Frederick's of Hollywood, Linda LoRe. LoRe, who founded the nonprofit organization with her brother Tony, has envisioned this level of success for the Youth Mentoring Connection since its inception seven years ago. "Youth Mentoring Connection is an opportunity for individuals to really make a difference in the life of a young person," states LoRe. "No matter where you come from or what profession you are in, these kids look to you to be a teacher, friend and mentor."

This sounds like an amazing event and I suspect that Cashica would've attended this ceremony even if Cash wasn't among the night's honorees. It's rare to see Jessica look this happy and ... smiley. She looks beautiful in pregnancy but she looks absolutely gorgeous when she adds a smile to her face. Much congrats to Cash for this recognition and much congrats to the happy couple on their nuptials. [Source]
