I was thrilled to be invited to a Masquerade Ball and one that is organized for a good cause, makes it even better. The event was held at the New Eastside Human Services Office Building and was also the grand opening.
The Masquerade Ball will benefit GIVE Denver, a donation and volunteer program which provides foster children, the homeless and other families in need with basic necessities, holiday gifts and school supplies.

Most events allow me to bring along a special guest, which has been wonderful for me to be able to share my adventures with the amazing people in my life. Becca, a dear friend of mine, and I had the pleasure of helping out with the photo booth and mingling with the attendees. We also had a chance to walk around to view the amazing hand painted masks provided by the children of the family crisis center which were on display and up for auction with proceeds going back to the program. The masks were created through the Mosaic Art Therapy Program, which helps youth heal by expressing themselves through art. The Mayor, Michael B. Hancock helped with a dedication ceremony, Phat Daddy played live music, and a light dinner was provided by Occasions by Sandy.
