Last week I was running around spinning plates until finally Thursday at 11 rolled around--then I was spinning plates and running but only at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel on Doheny. I have loads of pictures and the stories from the event are numerous.. We raised passion, awareness and money for The Get In Touch Foundation allowing us to grow our outreach beautifully.

We had over 200 people--we more than doubled our take home from last year--still waiting on final numbers but it was amazing. The event was star studded and received much attention from everyone involved--This week has been full of post event meetings and planning for next year. I am forever grateful to my co-chairs and fellow board members for making this event so flawless and to the event planner, Scherr Lillico and her team at The Proper Image Events who every year make things happen on time and in place!
We sold out our auction and our Daisy wheel auction raised more than last year--The event was a smashing success! Now back to writing my book!
