Gala night and the padres in NYC!

Every year, my organization hosts a celebrity-studded gala to raise funds for our programs.  This year, I served the role of 'celebrity liaison' and spent the evening backstage with our AMAZING celebrity lineup.  My parents flew out to Idaho for the event, which made it all the more special.  I LOVED sharing a little more about our organization with them, and loved our time in New York together.

T and I all geared up for our celebrity-liason roles for the night.  T hosted Stevie Wonder and I hosted Ingrid Michaelson!

The day after the Gala, I took the day off of work to spend some time with my parents in the city.  We went to the botanical gardens, ate at all kinds of amazing restaurants my dad found, and took in a Broadway show.  An amazing weekend with two of my very favorite people in the world!

Amazing little gem of a restaurant on the lower East Side - we highly recommend!

It went way too quickly!  Leaving on the train for the airport :(
