Last night at The Shops at Sunset Place Hart Baur and John Eaton joined good friend and tennis superstar Maria Sharapova at the launching of Maria’s new candy line “Sugarpova“. The place was pack with fans as Maria mingled with fans and signed autographs for everyone. “It was great we were able to get out here and support Maria, said lead guitarist John Eaton. “Will be out at the Sony Open cheering her on, but these events are just as important.”

Said Maria, “It was great Hart and John came out to be with me, I can’t wait to see this movie, release it already guys!” 

Maria’s candy line called ‘Sugarpova’ is a stylish, chic candy line that she was personally involved with from the beginning. “It was about 2 years from the meeting to this.” Each candy is designed by Maria herself, with her actually doing the drawings of the designs herself. “Yes, I did the drawings and designs myself, I was very involved and really learned the whole process. I am exited about it.”
 
The crowd of over 500 hundred were treated to a photo op as well as a chance to taste her new creations.
 
“I fell in love with gummy candies when I first came to the US when I was a little girl and went to the movies with my grandmother. To do this now is really amazing to me,” she said. 
 
“This was a great event and was very happy we were able to work this into our schedule to be here to support her,” said lead singer Hart Baur. “She is a great champion and now a great entrepreneur. She deserves all of this.”
 
“Maria’s awesome,” added John.
