Orlando’s International Airport, malls, hotels, city streets and especially Disney World were flooded with visitors coming to enjoy the weekend festivities.
At the Mall of Millenia, stores like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Mac had extra security to prevent overcrowding, and had waiting lines outside their doors. Fans yelled in amazement when stars like Chris Brown and Ne-Yo were seen shopping.
Spectators weren’t allowed to even drive up to the valet at the Hilton, the official NBA team hotel, without credentials. Once you walked through the front doors, there was a whole other level of security. Fans waited in the lobby and walkways just to get a glimpse of stars like LeBron James and Michael Jordan walking through with their bodyguards.
Since Shannon Saint Clair Jewelry was a NBA Players Association Player Gift Bags Sponsor, we were granted access inside the Hilton and visited their suite on Friday and Saturday, where our jewelry was on display.
Our Hematite Bracelets were photographed on NBA, WNBA, and NFL players such as James Jones of the Miami Heat, Chandler Parsons of the Houston Rockets, Chase Budinger of the Phoenix Suns, Donte Jones of the Indiana Pacers, Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, Kathy Pointdexter of the NY Liberty, and Brad Smith of the NY Jets.
On Friday February 24th at the Walt Disney Swan Hotel, Behind the Bench National Basketball Wives Association held their foundation’s luncheon and gospel recording artist Marvin Sapp performed heart felt solos. Our jewelry was featured in their Silent Auction, where several players wives walked away winning our necklaces, bracelets & children’s jewelry. BTB President Sandra Evans Short, Donella Thorpe & Anita Demps organized a spectacular fundraiser, where proceeds benefitted the Academy of Autism & the Orlando School of Cultural Dance.

At the All-Star Breakfast on Saturday February 25th, David Robinson and Pat Williams were honored. David wore a Shannon Saint Clair Hematite Bracelet, and at the NBA Legends Lounge where he signed autographs. I thought my husband was tall at 6’6″, but I’m still in amazement every time I meet a NBA player that’s 7 feet in stature!
Later Saturday evening, Shannon Saint Clair Jewelry was sold at Kenyon Dooling’s Art Gallery Shopping Experience at City Arts Factory in downtown Orlando. Guests mingled and shopped beautiful artwork and jewelry, while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and music from the DJ.
