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.

 

More than 400 guests braved the
start of Hurricane Sandy at Hyatt at the Bellevue on Sunday, October 28, 2012 for
a very important cause. The crowd hoped for “More Tomorrows” during the 12th
annual Friends of the American Cancer Society Party with a Purpose Gala.
Friends of the American Cancer Society President Beverly Goldberg and event co-chairs planned the event
honoring Steven M. Altschuler, MD, CEO of Children’s Hospital of
Philadelphia, with the 2012 Humanitarian Award.

Since its inception, the annual Party with a Purpose gala raised
more than $4 million to support the Society’s mission of saving lives and
creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays. This year, Party with a
Purpose fundraising efforts will be dedicated to childhood cancer research and
local patient service programs.
