I'm on the Auction Committee for the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Luncheon. The lunch raises money for heart disease--the number one killer of women. Mostly women attend the lunch and most everyone wears red, specifically red dresses.
I suggested we get a local designer to design a red dress for the auction. My friend did a fashion show with a local Dallas designer and BINGO, she gave me her contact information and the designer's donating something to the auction. And then, last night I attended a University of Michigan alumni happy hour. One of the other alums is the CEO of a fancy hotel chain. I emailed him today and he agreed to make a donation as well. Those are two big ticket items for the auction. I'd like to pat myself on the back--people will be willing to bid high dollars on these items! Yay!
