Not many people can walk into work and say they love what they do. I’m one of the lucky ones. Everyone at work is getting ready for our annual Valentine’s Day Gala. It’s a huge fundraiser where all the proceeds go towards feeding, clothing and giving shelter to the homeless. I get to help people everyday, and to me, that’s beautiful.
I volunteered, like many other coworkers that night, in assisting all the attendees. I was in charge of a gorgeous $11,000 necklace from Van Cleef & Arpel that was being raffled that night. Somehow, the cheapy ten dollar necklace I was wearing kept getting all the compliments though. I wasn’t complaining. I fell in love with all the gorgeous gowns the women were wearing… the dresses! I was in love.
The event was a success, and I couldn’t be prouder of all the hard work my colleagues put into this charity event.
