25th Anniversary Make A Wish Gala . . .

What an honor it was to be a part of the 25th Anniversary of the Make A Wish Gala. Pictured here with the founder and CEO, Joan Mazak. Make A Wish has granted 3000 wishes in Colorado for children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich them and their families with hope, strength and joy.
I was able to give my support that night by modeling and selling raffle tickets for a beautiful baby pearl necklace and by assisting in the live auction.
What a night to remember!

The stunning Miss Kennedy! Kennedy is an up and coming artist. Her wish was granted when she traveled to Paris to see the original Mona Lisa. She also was able to visit and photograph the garden of Monet'. This is one of her original paintings from one of her photos from Monet's garden. It was an auction item and well . . . I aggressively outbid everyone there! I wanted this painting to always remember Kennedy and all of the Make A Wish kids.

The beautiful Miss Austen. She not only is a "Make A Wish Kid" but she was one of the great entertainers of the night. She sang the most beautiful version of Rainbow Connection from the Muppets . . . she brought the crowd to their feet! AND, she loves to bake! A dozen of her home baked cookies went for over $100. Her wish is to meet Rachel Ray. I have a feeling her wish will come true . . . thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation!

I had such a great time mingling with the crowd and selling raffle tickets for this beautiful baby pearl necklace, donated by Hyde Park. The raffle alone raised over $2000.
