Looks like the party’s cancelled for Ellis McCarthy, the soon-to-be UCLA Bruin

Initially it was reported on Monrovia Patch that the Family of Ellis McCarthy would like to give him a world class send off this coming Saturday June 23rd at Eisenhower Park from 11am to 4pm. There will be a dinner/desert plate fundraiser in which proceeds will go to Ellis to ensure his great beginning at UCLA. Please come by and give Ellis your well wishes.

Since then, the patch story has been removed and there is a new one that reads .. On June 23,2012 please come and join us as we celebrate Ellis McCarthy’s 18th Birthday/Going away to College bash. Held @ Eisenhower Park in Arcadia @ 11:00 – till 5:00 pm, Please come and help us celebrate our young man.

SINCE THEN, the evolving story on the going-away bash was removed on Patch again, so there appears to be no party for McCarthy. My hunch is that since the initial story claimed to be a fundraising event, something that would probably be an NCAA violation, the party was cancelled entirely. Smart move, no way you want anything stopping Ellis from wearing his Blue and Gold.

    THERE WILL NOT BE A GATHERING FOR ELLIS MCCARTHY. ELLIS MCCARTHY WILL NOT BE IN ATTENDANCE OF ANY SUCH GATHERINGS.

    Ellis will not be attending any such celebration, or have anything to do with it. The community has shown much support during his high school years. Not sure who’s brilliant idea this was, but no thanks , you can further your support by purchasing up and coming UCLA season tickets at gobruins.com tickets are on sale now .
