What a NIGHT last night was. I spent most of the day making the final preparations for the much-anticipated Haitian Families First Back to School Party. The sponsors, food, drink and prizes came together perfectly! The Standard Band totally rocked the house. Bill Peduto even found a minute in his nonstop mayoral campaign to stop by!
I felt especially honored by all the awesome support of my friends. The members of The Standard Band all have day jobs, and that means they took several hours out of their workdays to do all the setup and prep for their performance. I am so grateful that they could do that! (PS– they are an awesome fun band, and are playing March 15 at Jergel’s!) My friends also came together to donate huge wine basket and other great things for the auction.
We all had a great time and raised a whole heap of cash for this truly grassroots organization that is doing great work.
Of course, the night didn’t stop there! After the party, my friend @nncypttr and I enjoyed an evening with the divine Grace Potter.
I knew of course that Grace has unparalleled pipes, but didn’t know that her musical talent goes far beyond singing. She showed herself to be a jane-of-all-trades with all things musical, mastering the drums, guitar and more throughout the show. She is quite the musical powerhouse, and had such cheerful energy. What a show!
