the spring for hope event last night was in downtown chicago at a great restaurant, howells + hood. adam and i arrived a little early so that we could help setup the venue with the other board members. howells + hood provided food and open bar for 2 hours while the attendees played trivia! it was a really fun way to spend the night while learning about one hope united. my favorite part of trivia was the round called a night that paul rudd and i will always remember. each team was given a sheet that consisted of a celebrity and paul rudd – the object was to guess the celebrity. while my team didn’t win {or even come close}, we still had a great time.

adam had to give a speech, and did a great job! we were able to catch up with some old friends and also make some new ones. the people who are a part of this organization are kind and caring people and it always amazes me just how wonderful those involved can be. really, to all of you that came to the event, you are awesome!

    of course like your website but you have to check the spelling
    on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find
    it very bothersome to inform the truth nevertheless I’ll surely come back again.
