Gold, Glitter and Glitz

I was officially exhausted with the month of February. The last two weeks of the month were insane, crazy, busy, exciting, fun and exhausting.

For starters it was the American Advertising Federation – Cleveland ADDY Awards. As co-chair my stress level was pretty high but we had an unbelievable group of volunteers who helped everything to go pretty seamlessly. Seriously – we were ahead of schedule at one point. And the night went off pretty flawlessly. Plus it was awesome to have our team win more than a few ADDYs (including a gold!)

The selfies with Nicole, Erin, Tim and I cracked me up. And check out that awesome team and that Gold ADDY!

Then it was right into Jump Back Ball 23. Which as you know, was a fantastic night out. 

And we were right into the Hunger Network inaugural All About the Bag Fashion Show! Over 375 people came out to support the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland, see some fab fashion, try and win a Gucci or Chanel bag and check out some of Cleveland’s awesome celebs.

Do you blame them for fighting over that bag?

The best part? We raised a lot of money for the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland, all while having an awesome Wednesday night out! Check out their mission and see how you can help out.

So now that February is wrapped up, I can catch up on sleep right?! (Just kidding…St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and I gotta prep for that!)

Disclaimer: All opinions are my own as always. I am a member of the AAF-CLE, as well as the Co-Chair for the ADDYs and this year I was the Event Chair for the Hunger Network’s All About the Bag event. I choose to be involved in both of these awesome organizations!
