Women taking care of themselves, living heart healthy and putting their needs first is a very important message. That's why I was so honored to be invited to the the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Luncheon in South Jersey. It was such a beautiful sight of people coming together, rocking red, in support of women everwhere who are, or are in danger of suffering from heart diease.

Thoughts of Donna Summer, The Village People, platform shoes, and shiny white vinyl boots were all in full effect at the Alzheimer's Benefit Disco which was held at the Crowne Plaza in Jamesburg, NJ. This wonderful event was put together by my friend Danielle Micale in honor of her late grandmother, Mildred. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's, a number that is not lost on Dani (Danielle) and her family. For the past few years they have been raising money and awareness to fight the disease. It was my pleasure to take part in their 70's style, Disco themed event which was estimated to raise over $2,500 that evening. A large portion of the proceeds went to the Alzheimer's Association.

If you never heard of the Good News Home for Women, it is a non-profit, long-term residential rehabilitation center aimed to help women who want to overcome the life-destroying effects of alcohol and other drug addictions. As an Inner/Outer Beauty Ambassador for the Esther Project, an empowerment organization to help women realize their purpose, I was able to host a day of beauty at my home where I gave the women of the Good News Home makeovers. It is my belief that looking good and feeling well put together gives you a confidence boost that can help guide you in the right direction of your passions and purpose. I am always amazed as I see the transformation of spirits being lifted take place when a women has her makeup done and feels good about herself. My passion and purpose is to help all women look and feel beautiful and I thank the Good News Home for Women for allowing me to exercise that passion with them.
