Nearly one hundred guests attended the WNVA sponsored holiday event, as the worlds of Hollywood and Orange County came together to celebrate the season.
“It was the perfect way to celebrate the holidays, and a great way to end the year as we continue the pre-launch of our new company,” says WNVA owner’s Ron and Colette DeShay. This event is the DeShay’s annual holiday party. The Women’s National Volleyball Association headlined the list of sponsors along with Peligroso and renowned OC fashion designer Marisa Kenson.
As guests arrived, they were treated to a festive evening full of fun, dining and entertainment. Concert pianist Gordon Cheng played Christmas carols, and hip-hop violinist Josh Vietti wowed the guests with his tremendous talent. Also, American Idol’s Brooke White made an appearance, along with some members of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” cast.
The DeShay’s identify this annual gathering as a time for friends, family, coworkers and colleagues to come together just to have a good time. This year, Ron and Colette had lots of reasons to celebrate. In addition to being surrounded by an incredible group of friends from Hollywood and Orange County, during the pre-launch of the WNVA, they were able to bring in more than 18,000 fans in the last 4 months of the 2010.
“Our fans are our foundation. That is why we have placed such a great emphasis on building up our fan base,” says Ron DeShay. The couple is excited about the response from volleyball fans across the country. Much of the growth that has taken place has been spear headed by the fans. The WNVA fan base now covers all 50 states plus 14 other countries around the world.
The DeShay’s say there is no better way for them to celebrate the great things that are taking place for the WNVA. They believe 2011 will be a groundbreaking year. The couple would like to extend many thanks to the existing fans of WNVA and while ending their interview; they quoted the WNVA’s pre launch phrase, “Let the Revolution Begin!” Happy New Year to everyone! We look forward to unveiling the plans for this great movement in volleyball this year.
