Last night I grabbed Keira-Anne and headed to the Red Cross Red Carpet Soiree. I held a contest on my site and I ran into the winner of my tickets, Lesley Chang, along with Karen from TinyBites, Paulo from istyleu, Melissa from FiveCorners604, Cathy Browne, and Chris Freimond of the IABC (where I gave my Twitter for Business talk).
Keira got her makeup touched up by The Beautyink Gallery and we enjoyed delicious canapes courtesy of our host, the Blue Water Care + Raw Bar. I was looking forward to another rosemary martini, like I had when I was a judge for the Grey Goose Arbiter of Cool competition but unfortunately no one there that night knew how to make it. Still, the wine from Mission Hill was flowing, the silent auction bids were rising, and the tunes from DJ Ocean were just right.
We celebrated the centennial of the Canadian Red Cross in style and were really happy to support this cause — and to see that the event was such a success.
