Charity Benefit in Chicago
Tonight I attended a fund raising benefit for the Global Alliance for Africa which was held at the Millinnium Knickerbocker Hotel. There was a silent auction of many pieces of art as well as a raffle for two tickets to Africa. My friend Allison has been saying all night that she was going to win that trip to Africa and amazingly enough the winner's ticket was just one number away from hers. It was bittersweet for sure. The benefit was a fund raiser for Global Alliance for Africa. This fundraiser is done every year and consists of a great deal of the volunteers for the alliance. It was great to witness such giving from so many. Most of the people there were from the non-profit sector and it was just a beautiful event. This is an event that my friend attends every year an has worked with many of the people there on one project or another. Thanks Allison it was fun.
