I’m proud to announce that I am donating a piece for silent auction to the 18th Annual Night for Life Gala 2013 – Illuminating the Path – Fundraising Event for The Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS. The center focuses on HIV/AIDS prevention, wellness and related research.
The Gala is a Black Tie Event happening at the Montelucia Resort and Spa on Saturday, May 11th. It looks like it’s going to be a blast—a glamourous and exciting event for a worthy cause! Last year’s gala was sold out and was a huge success.
