JDRF Gala

My little reason for attending:



Rainne Brandt with OmniPod invited Jessica and I to attend the JDRF Gala on Saturday night.  We were both very honored and pleased to be able to attend.  There was an amazing turn out, good food, a great silent auction, plus a very exciting live auction but then the most amazing part of the evening (in my opinion) was the Fund a Cure.  They started the Fund a Cure with an open invitation to donate $100,000 & someone raised their auction card and did it.  Just like that.  Easy Peasy.  Then it was $50,000, $25,000, 15,000, $10,000, $5,000 and so on and on.  I was personally in awe watching these people donate such large funds to the cause that has become so near and dear to my heart.  A M A Z I N G!

Here is a picture of Jessica, Rainne and me . . . 


and then another picture once we started rocking to Kool and the Gang . . . 

It was an amazing experience filled with laughter, tears and hope.  Thank you, Rainne and OmniPod for a great evening with wonderful people raising money for a fabulous cause.
