What’s more fun than having a drink with your friends at the bar? Knowing that your money is going towards a great cause like finding a cure for cancer! Ashley Delegal, my fiance, has been training for the New York City Triathlon with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, a group which raises money for cancer research while helping it’s members cross the finish line at one of the biggest races in New York! I can’t tell you how proud of her I am! You can read about her progress here and donate to help her reach her goal if you like: http://pages.teamintraining.org/nyc/nyctri09/adelegal
She needs to raise $2,600 by race day and is so close to her goal but not quite there, so she decided to take it upon herself to throw a fundraiser at Jake’s Dilemma on the upper east side. Buying a ticket at the door got you drinks at the bar for the evening and entered into a raffle. I thought I would do my part by recording the event but also offered, to the winning ticket holder, a free photography session! The other two winners received an original piece of artwork by Anna Hewett and a pair of tickets to Broadway’s Hair! Thanks to everyone who came out!
