Kristi Yamaguchi is hosting the McDonald's Tribute on Ice at the Galen Center at the University of Southern California. The show takes place on October 3 and airs on November 16.
The world-class cast of skaters includes 2006 Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen, two-time (2007-08) U.S. champion Evan Lysacek, 2008 U.S. champion Mirai Nagasu, 2006 world and 2007 U.S. champion Kimmie Meissner, 2008 world champion Jeffrey Buttle, two-time (2004, '06) U.S. pair champion Rena Inoue and John Baldwin, five-time (2004-04) U.S. ice dancing champions Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto, 2007 U.S. silver medalist Ryan Bradley and 2007 U.S. bronze medalist Alissa Czisny.
Great lineup - but too bad Yamaguchi isn't going to get on the ice (or at least ballroom dance)! The event will include tributes to the participants' families, and is airing a bit before World Children's Day® at McDonald's, which raises money for Ronald McDonald House charities.
