Helping Kids is Always In Fashion, Just ask Charlotte

I’ve been an absentee blogger for the past few months. On the one hand, that is a lovely and clear indication that Charlotte is doing well and has no imminent medical issues.

On the other hand, she has had the usual check ups (dental, back-to-school), the best summer of her life, and other adventures totally worth chronicling.  I’ve been remiss in reporting.

But, I’ve got a good reason–I’ve been extra busy co-chairing the 59th Gold Coast Fashion Award Show.  I’m humbled and honored to have been asked to take on this big job. The Children’s Service Board has, with this signature event as well as other endeavors, raised millions of dollars for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital.

One of the board’s commitments was the Transit Team. I owe a special debt of gratitude to the Transit Team as they brought Charlotte to me for the first time when she was 12 hours hold, as they were transferring her from Prentice Women’s Hospital to Children’s. Little did I know that that first kindness came from the women whose ranks I later joined as an act of gratitude.

Anyway, the Gold Coast Fashion Award Show is just 10 days away. I hope you’ll consider joining us or making a donation or buying a raffle ticket.  The details are below and you can click on the image to donate or buy a ticket.


Thank you for reading for 9 years and counting.  I’ll be back soon!ielec invite
