Good News

Greetings! So what's the latest? Well, I was a bit out of commission yesterday recovering from a stomach bug- but I'm getting back to things today. In good news, we have a host for our April 25 fashion show at Copley Place. Jackie Bruno, NECN anchor/reporter will be hosting. She responded immediately to our invitation and sounds very enthusiastic, which is great. I think she will be an excellent host! We also have our liquor sponsor on board- Voli Vodka. They participated in our fall show and their cocktails are delicious. I'm working on lining up additional appetizers/dessert vendors for the show. So far, we are off to a good start.

In other excellent news, Sofft Shoes is returning as a sponsor for the Date Auction. I'm so happy about that. They have been a huge part of our event, almost since the beginning. Thanks to their support, the bachelors with the ten highest bids will come with a $150 Sofft Shoes gift card for the ladies with the winning bids. That's an excellent incentive to bid! We're also going to be partnering with Yelp again with a sponsorship trade.

Today, we did another donation to Boston PD. We donated over 275 stuffed animals, books and coloring books/crayons. Here is a photo from the donation. The photo is kind of funny with the boxes in different directions

Well, that's the latest for tonight. I'm getting tired- don't think I've fully recovered from the bug  yet. I'm not ready to start eating my grapefruit again! Until tomorrow friends...

Hi Catherine. We have been trying to get in touch with you by email. Our daughter is very interested in participating in Project Smile. She would like to introduce it to our town. Additionally, she is our town's 2013 Project 351 Ambassador and would like to help represent the project when she meets Governor Patrick next weekend. Please check your Project Smile email and reply. We are excited to be part of this wonderful project!
