American Cancer Society Party with a Purpose Gala.
Peoples, I’m still feeling under the weather. Thanks for the feed back on my little gossip column yesterday, I had a good response. I hope to do it more often. Here’s an event I didn’t have a chance to write about or attend as it happened at the height of Sandy. The organizers did send the pixs to me so here they are. I don’t always do this as I usually have so much content, but it’s slow and I haven’t gone out. But this weekend really kicks my calendar up a notch and I’ll be busy, busy, busy.
