The Blues Help Beat Blood Cancer

Wow. That’s the best way to put it. My first experience at the Leukemia Ball is one I surely won’t forget. This is such a gorgeous event from the fabulous crowd, the detailed decor.. the moment you walk in the feeling is grand.

This year I was honored to quad-emcee with three of my girlfriends from the other three stations. It was quite the production.. we even had a full rehearsal earlier in the day. It paid off because the event was a complete success. The Leukemia  & Lymphoma Society’s National Capital Chapter surpassed it’s goal of $90,000 raising $2.7 Million dollars for blood cancer research. How awesome is that!

Tammy Darvish was honored with a big award for all that she has done in this fight. She was so dynamic on stage and really inspired the crowd.

Dana Carvey was hilarious… imitating all the recent Presidents and weaving political humor into his performance. He helped us give away 2 Mercedes and then  Jim Belushi and his band hit the stage and kept the party rockin’ in to the night! Thank you to all who came out to support LLS and those fighting this battle everday!

Lilly Pulitzer Mother-Daughter Tea & Fashion Show

It’s one of my favorite events of the year… the Tickled Pink Mother-Daughter Tea and Fashion Show at the Fairmont. It benefits the Make a Wish. The Pink Palm helps us pick out all our Lilly Pulitzer. It’s definitely the ultimate gathering for the girls and the kids love it. Adora actually walked this year and had a hilarious debut. When people started calpping for her.. she joined them in clapping for herself. When she saw dad in the crowd she started yelling and with arms wide open tried to run off the stage to him– precious!
