I can not stress how important these non-profit organizations are to our community. When I was in college, an organization called INROADS helped me get my first internship. And it's partly because of them that my career is where it's at right now. So folks, please continue to support your local non-profits. If you can and have the time, serve on a board and start making a difference. Eventually once I have enough working experience, I want to sit on a board of an organization like this. But until then, let me share some pics we took:
Mr. Executive Director himself. John is a natural with kids and he made a wonderful speech that night.
These are the counselors that volunteer their time to change lives. Smooches to them! They're my heroes!
The Chairman, Boh Dickey, was there hanging out. He also made a great speech and urged the kids to give back to the community and help others once they've become successful. Very great message!
I LOVED LOVED LOVED that some parents took the time out to come mingle as well.
It was a fun time indeed!
A group of friends taking pictures that'll hopefully last them a long time. I'm sure these kids didn't know each other before ACAP since a lot of them are from schools all over the Puget Sound.
Hmm...Chris shot this of me from across the room and yes, I was having a great time, as you can tell. Let me just say how much I love love love this dress I got from Urban Outfitters. It's a silk dress shirt that I just throw this over some tights and belt it. It's so comfortable and flattering...I just love it. I tried finding it online again in another color, but they ran out! Boo!!!
There you have it! My recap! Before I leave though I wanted to get your opinion. I wanted to try something new on this blog and thought maybe I can incorporate a weekly tidbits entry. You all know that I love pictures, FOOD, and clothes, but there's a lot to me other than those mentioned three things. These would be well thought out, oftentimes stories of a time in my life, which will give you a little perspective of who I am. Not only just random facts. So what do you think? Interesting or just plain shallow??? Haha!!
Thank you all and good night!
