Marc and I were asked to attend the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) hope fundraiser gala this past weekend at the John Q Hammons center! We were asked by one of Marcs old co-workers to go with him and to sit at his table. He has suffered from diabetes for several years, so we felt very honored to go and help support finding a cause for this disease! My grandmother also suffers from diabetes so it was neat to see money raised for such a good cause.
It was fun seeing all of the NWA "celebs" out! We were able to sit with one of the morning news anchors from channel 9! We also were able to watch ms. Nadine Rippelmeyer paint a gorgeous painting that was auctioned off! She is a local artist around here and has lots of art is museums in NYC!
If you would like to see pics, photographers from 3W magazine were there snapping pics of people while they walked around at the silent auction. I really like 3W magazine because it keeps people up to date with current events in NWA!

It was a fabulous night and we felt honored to go!
