A lovely night for a party

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, ILLINOIS - The weather was perfect last night for this indoor/outdoor ladies only shopping party at Vignettes, which kicked off the Illinois part of the Hope Trail. For the second year in a row, this great shop hosted an event to help raise funds for the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer, offering late night shopping, beverages and fun door prizes. Many survivors were in attendance, and so many came up to tell me how much of an impact it had on them that the Foundation has someone who is a survivor who attends events and speaks to them. It is so moving when people approach me with tears in their eyes to thank us. I am the one who thanks you - you make it all worthwhile!
