Last Sunday, I had the distinct pleasure of attending a magical fundraising event in Las Vegas. Circus Couture is part-circus, part-fashion show, ALL-heart and hope, and it benefits the Children's Specialty Center of Nevada and the St. Baldrick's Foundation. I met up with my dear Momma friend from California, Alyson, and we had a fabulous time watching the Cirque du Soleil performers and the lively auction happening throughout the night. One of the top bidders was Criss Angel, who, besides donating over $20,000 in the auction, also spontaneously donated a custom motorcycle, which fetched nearly $38,000 on the spot! It was very exciting and inspiring, and he couldn't have been more gracious. Support like that is critical to raising awareness and much-needed funds, and for him to be so engaged in the event and the mission was icing on the cake. It was a very successful and entertaining show, and I'm making it an annual adventure from now on!

She shaved her head onstage as part of her act, and it was beautiful!

We also ran into Kathleen Ruddy, CEO of St. Baldrick's, and got a quick pic for the 
#YouAreMyHero campaign.

Our own hero has her very first swim meet in the morning, and she is beyond excited! She'll be swimming the 50 and 100 meter freestyle, and we'll all be there to cheer her on. We'll report back with all the details, but any extra good vibrations you can send her in the morning would be much-appreciated! Thanks, y'all!
