Review for Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation, Glenham, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is my second year attending the KFM Foundation Masquerade Ball and this time I was a volunteer. This years ball was again very organized with exceptional entertainment along with delicious food. If you like to dance this for sure is an event to come to. The silent auctions are an additional area to help raise money for this worthy cause. New this year was a photo booth. A minimal $5 donation to have 4 pictures taken. The costumes along with the different poses made it enjoyable to watch from the sidelines and the guests seemed to enjoy themselves with this feature.

On a more serious note, the ladies who lead this are very dedicated to this cause and Crystal who is the president seems to have an unending amount of energy that she puts into this event along with all the other fundraising events she holds to raise money for cancer research. What I like the most about this foundation is it's family owned and run, all the money raised goes to the recipient, and small groups, individuals and families benefit from the help of this foundation.

Come on out next year and experience it for yourself. For more information please go to:

Review for Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation, Glenham, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For a first year Ball this was exceptionally well done but knowing the ladies who put this together makes this no surprise. Their mom would be speechlessly proud!!!!! . I loved the layout of the tables, dance floor versus the side with all of the silent auction items. It helped things flow. One thing I would like to suggest is not to be eating while someone is talking at the podium. For those people who's backs were to the podium (as I was) made me feel rude having my back to the speaker but trying to eat. Have a speaker, serve the salad, let them almost finish then have another speaker, serve the main course, another speaker, etc. Also, no matter what venue I attend it's always hard to be able to talk to people when the dancing starts because of the volume of the music. Not sure if there really is anything that can be done about that except for me to ask for a table as far away from the DJ/Band if necessary. :-) One other thing I would have like to see done is to take individual/couple/group pictures at a designated area. The costumes were wonderful as were the masks. GREAT JOB!!!
