As I began preparations for this year's event, I knew that I wanted to include a local organization. Altruistically, I wanted to contribute to making a difference in my own community (Rochester, NY). Selfishly, I felt that people might be more likely to support the effort if it included a local organization. I am honored to be able to support SIS - Sustain, Inspire, Survive. This awesome organization provides meaningful services to women battling breast cancer.
This year's event will be a speakeasy themed party with live music, casino gaming tables and a silent auction. I continue to be humbled and amazed by the generosity of people, very often people I don't know. A number of people have donated their services for free or at reduced rates. I have received several amazing donations already for the silent auction. This promises to be a fabulous event and I look forward to seeing you there.
