Hi sisters -- Last night I volunteered to be part of the Angel Ball event where many rich people attend and donate money for a cure. My job was to help identify tables that were bidding. There were a few celebrities, like Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campball, among others. It was a gala event so it was fancy! I had fun. They raised 3.3 million dollars for cancer research and the money will go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering, my hospital. I was excited when I saw how many people donated their money for this - I know they're rich, but they could have used up their money for something else. I still think we need more support and we definitely need money to go to the right places.

Gabrielle was a young women (26) who died from leukemia 15 years ago. And her last wish was to celebrate life. To read more about this go here: http://www.gabriellesangels.org/

I got to walk away with a nice gift bag with tons of products in it. So that was nice.

I also thought of all of you. It was emotional for me to see Gabrielle's mom speak.
