The Secret City Benefit 2015

The Secret City Benefit 2015

 

 

Wow! What a wonderful night we had at Secret Admirers, our annual NYC benefit. Special guests Rosanne Cash and Nancy Giles were wonderful and warm, and the NYC Flaggers topped off the night with some fantastic flag twirling. We had an amazing team of volunteers and committee folks and a beautiful, generous room of donors and supporters. The food was a delicious, the room looked great, the live auction was a blast and the raffle was a huge hit. We also had a Selfie Photo Booth in the lobby which was a riot. Oh, and the music! The band and singers were wonderful, too. All in all, it was a wonderful night of support. I’m so grateful to all who took part and helped out.
