Today Angelenos braved nasty weather to participate in the United Way of L.A.'s HomeWalk. The annual walk claims it has raised more than $2 million for the homeless of Los Angeles County over the past 5 years. Kobe Bryant chaired the event for the second year in a row (and we also spotted Miss California among the participants). For more information about the walk and local homeless population, check out the organization's website.
