Tribute to Robert Kennedy Set For Sunday


Arnold Schwarzenegger Heads the List of Guest Speakers

It will be a very special Sunday in Santa Monica, CA . I'm honored to be hosting Robert "Bob" Kennedy's "Celebration of Life", being held at The Casa Del Mar Hotel. If the location sounds familiar, it's where the the 90th birthday bash of the late Jack LaLanne was held a few years back.

Kennedy, the magazine publishing icon (MuscleMag International, Reps!, Oxygen, American Curves, et al) , who also penned 55 books, passed away in April from cancer at 73. The man who surprised him with an Easter visit to his home in Canada--just four days prior to Robert's passing-- Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, will be the honorary guest speaker.

Also taking the podium on Sunday: The Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno; IRON MAN Publisher John Balik; Jack's wife, Elaine LaLanne; first-ever Ms Olympia Rachel McLish; author/consultant Bob Proctor; photographer Irv Gelb and Robert's wife, Tosca Reno. Tosca, who is now Publisher and CEO of Robert Kennedy Publishing, is, like Robert, a New York Times Best-selling author with her "Eat Clean Diet Book" series.

I know Robert was loved by many, and several folks have asked if they can attend. Unfortunately, this will be a private affair for invited guests only. Media check-in is at 10:30 AM and clearance is a MUST. Contact Silvie Bordeaux at Bordeauxprr@aol.com, or at 818-943-9673, for clearance.
