So, as promised, here is one of the things I have been working on. For a number of months now, I have been working with Sarah and The Crohn’s Journey Foundation. They are based in California and are now wanting to break out on the East Coast. As their introduction, they are holding a Prom style dance.
So I want to officially invite everyone to the IBD Prom
at The Peninsula New York hotel on April 11th. Tickets can be purchased here http://thecrohnsjourneyfoundation.org/products-page/events/ibd-prom/ Please RSVP by March 25th, but the sooner the better as space is limited. There will be a DJ for music, delicious food and drinks, a photo both and a silent auction with great items.
I have been helping to organize this and have been having such fun doing it. I have been speaking with so many great people to get this together and even connected with a famous person in the music industry that also has IBD (name will be withheld…for now). I am hoping to get a donation from this person for the auction.
In case you are wondering, no you don’t have to have IBD to attend. It is for anyone that has IBD, knows someone with IBD, anyone that wants to support people with IBD, or anyone that wants to party like it’s 1999.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. If I don’t have the answer, I can get it. So I hope to see many of you there. And if you do come, please don’t hesitate to come up to me and say hi.
UPDATE: Sadly, the prom had to be rescheduled. There is no new date, but the target will be April of 2015. As soon as I have more information I will let everyone know.
