Savoring a good cause

Holy smokes, the Abstrakt Art Gallery was rockin’ in Saturday night! That’s when the MyMommyManual ladies, Ria, Suzanne, and Maggie, coordinated a companion event to BlogHer09, the Chicago conference for women bloggers. It was simulcast with similar events around the country Saturday night to the BlogHer conference. The St. Louis ladies chose to have the proceeds donated to Parents as Teachers.

Pierre from Bevitoré Wine Boutique offered tastes of extraordinary wines, complemented by outstanding delicacies from Kakao Chocolate. Art and a silent auction of paintings by Paco Rosic set the stage for a group of Tango dancers during the evening.

But the most amazing part of the evening was that not a single invitation was printed or mailed. This gallery full of people connected through social networks to enjoy friends, mingle and oh, by the way, support a great cause: Parents as Teachers.

Thanks, Ria, Suzanne, Maggie, Pierre from Bevitoré Wine Boutique, the staff of Kakao Chocolate, Abstrakt Art Gallery and Paco Rosic, and Tango instructor Michael Flanagan!
