The Benefit of Love, Valentine's Day Celebration
February 10, 2011
Gifted Hands extends a BIG thank you to the Cappellini Showroom staff for their outstanding contribution of a festive space for the Benefit of Love where the perfect Valentine ambiance happened. To Carrie and Brian Packin of Lounge 48 – thank you for the beverages. They were such a compliment to the confections donated by Whole Foods. This event took place because of our extraordinary event coordinators Bess Knox, Sarah Currid and the volunteer team that continue to create amazing benefits to raise awareness and support for our clients. The music from both bands created an atmosphere of love and warmth in the February cold. To our guests, raffle gift donors, Lady GaGa ticket donor, jewelry shoppers, and monetary contributors we were able to raise almost $5,000 by the end of the evening due to you, our benefactors of L-O-V-E!
