Dear Family, Friends, Supporters, and Fellow Zebras,
After months, and days, and hours, and hours…and more hours of planning, we are finally ready to launch ticket sales for our 3rd Annual, “An Evening with Chris Trapper and Tony Lucca to Benefit Invisible Illness Awareness and Research.”
There have been many meetings so far. So many triumphs. So many acts of kindness and generosity. So many emails. And yes, even a few frustrations and tears along the way. I have learned that just goes with the territory.
Two years ago, the dream was born for Allie and me.
Live. Love. Michigan.
A company I had not heard of until a few weeks ago, when my friend, Sara, posted a link to my Facebook wall asking if I wanted to vote. I was confused so I read further and saw that this company was asking for people to nominate their favorite Michigan non-profit for their Hold on to Hope Campaign.
For documentation sake, the following are Allie and my speeches from the Life as a Zebra Foundation’s second annual, “An Evening With Chris Trapper and opener, Joshua Davis Trio, to Benefit Invisible Illness Research” held at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center on April 13, 2013.
What a difference a week makes.
Last Saturday at this time, I was in a cocktail dress, with my hair and makeup done, surrounded by so much love and support, hosting Life as a Zebra Foundation’s second annual benefit concert with my sister.
This Saturday, I have just woken up, I am sitting with heating pads on my back and neck, and I am in my sweats, blogging and watching Knocked Up.
I am not complaining. Both are spectacular feelings.
