As a professional master of ceremonies I typically see a GALA time of year and February is one of them with a couple of black tie events back to back. First up “Champagne and Diamonds” an annual event for a local hospital network with international results. Just an amazing organization.

As my second time as the event emcee I was delighted to see the event had grown – in a time when most fundraisers are seeing flat responses. This year the money raised was going to purchase a mobile mammography coach. Last year, the money raised was to build and purchase a mobile outreach coach to go to the communities that don’t have good access or personal ability to access health care. The cool part – the new coach they raised money for last year, was parked out front for all to see what their efforts accomplished. Just like I hope to see next year.

Congratulations on your most successful Champagnes and Diamonds yet and I look forward to helping as your Master of Ceremonies next year as well.
