St Jude’s Red Carpet For The Cure {Minnesota Golden Globes}

OrchardCenterPieceCandle

The only Golden Globes viewing party in the US took place last night at the Metropolitan Ballroom, and as you have probably guessed by the title, it was organized by St Jude’s Children’s hospital. Having lived in Minnesota for the past 2 years, I am definitely familiar with St Jude, last spring we had a trike-a-thon at work to raise money for the cure at work. But it was so nice to be able to learn more about what they do, what the survival rates are, and what their goals are! It was a truly inspiring night. The evening included a cocktail hour, silent auction, live auction (where a trip to New York with an exclusive behind the scenes access to Badgley Mischka show went for almost 20K!) The donations part of the auction alone raised almost 56K! And it’s all for the CURE! It’s all to stop CANCER! If you ever ever think about what charity to donate to, donate to St. Jude’s Hospital! And the families that walk through the doors at St. Jude’s, they never have to pay a dime for all the treatments their child is receiving!

It was also so much fun to meet and talk to Ashley of Crunchy Frugalista, and Jamie of Toys in the Dryer! You ladies are amazing and I loved swapping goodie bag lipsticks with you! And of course thank you Ali for making it possible for me to attend this event!

Happy Monday and enjoy the photos!
