On Monday, November 1, I went to see Gavin Creel at Birdland and gave him a button for participating in my blog last year! He put it on and now it made it onto Broadwayworld's photo coverage! I'm SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!
Thank you Gavin Creel for wearing my button for all your pictures! Thank you Jim Caruso for allowing me to attend last night's show! Thank you Keith for waiting with me after the show & taking my picture! Most of all, Thank You to my friend Gail for making me my buttons! I'm so grateful to you all!!!
Here are the pictures singled out....All photos by Monica Simoes, except the one of me & Gavin.
This past Sunday (October 24), I participated in "Out of Darkness: The Walk To Prevent Suicide," walking with "The Beaten Path" team. Along with 800 other walkers, we walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and back to Manhattan. Our team raised over $1900 and the walk itself raised over $125,000 with no corporate sponsorships. All of that money was raised by the participants!
It was truly a day of coming together and getting the word out about how suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Fellow "Adaumbelle's Quest" participant
Bobby Cronin performed two songs ("Daybreak" sung by the amazing Ray Lee and "The Best Is Yet To Come" sung by the equally amazing and upcoming participant Jenn Furman). Both songs of hope were the perfect fit and both Ray and Jenn really hit the mark!
It's not too late to help support this great cause...donations are being accepted until December 31. Please give what you can...
If you are looking for that perfectly baked, deliciously tasting, mouth-watering baked good, then I suggest you take a look at "Jimmies Sweet Shop," a newly started baked good on-line store founded and run by my friend and baker extraordinaire Rebecca! Rebecca has been baking for well over a decade delighting her friends and coworkers with all things delicious from cookies to cupcakes! Give someone you love the sweetest gift that they will surely remember well after it's gone...http://www.jimmiesnyc.com
