Not that I need a reminder, but days like today, when I read about what Justin is going through and how his journey has taken another unfair turn - a really bad one - inspires me to share this event again, because it is a reminder of why we do what we do so passionately.
And, because "everyone can give a half a sandwich." as my friend Mary Pallotta taught me. Although, in this case I realize it's more like a sandwich and a half :)
And, because, this event is going to be so incredibly FUN, and Lou and I can't wait to meet you all in our first, adult-only fundraiser. Where we can really spend time with all of our incredible supporters - unlike the Mess Fest where there were 2,000 people (how totally AWESOME was that?). Did I mention there is a 5-hour open bar? Dinner? Outrageous auction items? A charitable casino?
C'mon friends. Share the love. And if Greenwich is a bit too far, you should know that the Greenwich Hyatt has a block or rooms set aside for TLC guests at a rate of only $99 for the night - which is totally unheard of for a venue like this! I am so incredibly excited and I really hope you will join us! If you plan one big night out this year, make it this one. Lou and I can't wait to see you at the Greenwich Hyatt on February 15th.
