A Better World held their annual Gala on October 17th at the Bank of America Stadium.  The Organization
ABW is an after-school safe haven for kids K-12. Every single kid who has stayed with the program has graduated from high school.   Anna Kooiman hosted the event and spoke during the slideshow presentation.  There was a silent auction and my National Sponsor and dear friend Tara Davis graciously donated a cocktail dress for auction.  I donated a bottle of French White Wine and a Gift Certificate from Eyes Eyes Baby my friend Kelly Ward Manion's company.  
On the same night Charlotte Catholic High School, which I attended from 1982-1984, had a reunion at Loft in downtown Charlotte.  It was nice to see everyone that evening and catch up with each other's stories.  Have I really been out of high school for 25 years....LOL! 
Thank you to Kathleen, Carolyn, Kristin, Mike, Judith and Thad for organizing the event!
Thank you to Takisha and Brittani for inviting me to attend the ABW Gala!
