Amazing is an understatement to describe this foundation and their efforts to find a cure for pediactric cancer. I have teamed up with this foundation and each sale of my owl hats I have agreed to donate a portion of it's proceeds in hopes that every little bit counts. And that one day this foundation would be the reason why something great has become of this! They are wonderful women whom I have known since my childhood and I am so proud of all their hard work and dedication to this foundation.

This event was amazing for so many reasons. Not only is this an amazing foundation but it was started in memory of an amazing woman. Mrs. Marks would be so proud to see the wonderful things her beautiful daughters have done. I had such a wonderful time at the ball and not only connected with old friends but made great new friends. The music was excellent, the food delicious, the entertainment spectacular, and the decor breathtaking.It was such an honor to contribute to the cause. I am proud to have say I attended this event and even prouder to call Crystal, Isis, and Tiffany my friends. I can't wait for the next event!!!!
