Charity dinner

Last night we had a mini celebration. We ventured out to Milford, CT, my second trip there of the day for a charity dinner. It was the 2nd Annual "A night to remember" for Kisses from Katie. Katie Manning was a beautiful baby girl who was born with a congenial heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome(HLHS). HLHS is a rare and potentially fatal condition that is addressed by 3 palliative open heart surgeries. Sadly Katie's life lasted only five and a half months, however in this time she was able to touch many people through her story. After her death her parents founded Kisses from Katie. They have 4 main programs that help parents and babies in the Neo-natal care units of hospitals. Since its founding Kisses from Katie has grown enormously.

The 2nd annual "A night to remember" dinner is a testament to this growth. We had a night of good food, good company, a few games, and lots of dancing. Jordan and I didn't dance so much but we enjoyed watching! We also participated in the raffle and silent auction. The event ended after our bedtime so we are still waiting to see if we won anything. They did an amazing job gather all sorts of cool things for the auction. I hope they made tons of money to support their causes.

I think my plate looks very pretty. Look at all of the colors. Good thing I was with Jordan though. I grabbed too much and he had to finish my plate.

Please go to Kisses from Katie to learn more about all of the good things they are apart of and how Katie continues to make a difference in this world.
