“I did a sport called netball and field hockey,” Naomi added. “A little bit of a lot of different things. My own father was a coach, so when I met [Up2Us Sports founder] Paul Caccamo, there was a little bit of a crossover.”‘

Naomi was joined at the event by one of the evening’s hosts, Dr. David Colbert, Famke Janssen, Gretchen Mol and Michele Hicks.
