"Best day ever"


-- Really nice preview party at Z's Oyster Bar tonight. The joint was jumping, and it was obvious where the Go Red guests were -- all you had to do was follow the sea of bright red. And the happy noises, laughter and chatter.
Now that the luncheon is almost here -- tomorrow, Friday Feb. 26 is the big day -- it's time to take a big breath and acknowledge that we five challengers are a small part of an enormous outpouring. So much time, talent, effort, hard work and yes, money, have gone into making this event a huge success -- culminated, in my view, when Sue Anne Gilroy of the St. Vincent Foundation announced that the Indy luncheon is sold out for the first time ever. Terrific!!!
She also made it a point to sing the praises of the heart association staff, who put together the entire script for tomorrow without once giving credit to themselves. That's not all; they also have been the behind-the-scenes magic fairies who made everything good happen, from arranging for video and photo shoots and Macy's appointments and doctor visits, exercise, etc., right down to delivering 15 heart pins at the last minute so I can pass them out to friends....TY TY TY.
Anyhow, it is excellent to be a part of something so huge and so successful. I know the challengers will continue to make strides and get our houses in order. Hope everyone has the best day ever tomorrow -- to quote that favorite song of a favorite 8-year-old relative.
