Towards the end of summer, we taped six weeks of shows at the fabulous Venetian & Palazzo resorts in Las Vegas. It was so exciting to be back in Vegas and kicking off Wheel's Season 31 premiere.
Check out some of my glitzy fashions and watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes interview.
Lion Brand Yarn President and CEO David Blumenthal and I recently toured St. Jude Children's Research Hospital where we presented a check for $1,000,000 to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.
When Lion Brand approached me about working with them on my own line of yarn, Vanna's Choice, it was important to me that a portion of the proceeds go to a cause dear to my heart, so we chose St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It is so incredible and gratifying to me that the total we have donated to date has reached this amazing milestone.
While I was there, I was also fortunate enough to spend time with some of the patients and families who benefit from St. Jude's care. I visited with them, did some crafts and even demonstrated some crocheting techniques.
We will continue to donate, doing our part to help St. Jude patients continue to receive exceptional care, where no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
