I Drink for Charity

On to the Saturday recap…

As I mentioned a few dozen times when I hit you all up for donations, Saturday was our High Heel Hike to benefit cancer research.

A few fellow crazies accompanied me on our 1 kilometer journey through a quaint shopping district.




Because of its incredible athletic demands--about every 10 feet or so there was a booth set up with cupcakes or cocktails or presents. Seriously, I think the only thing that would have made this better is if they had wheeled us around on gurneys and gave us cab fare for the ride home. Even the minor children were inpressed.



But it was all for a good cause, and I finally got to meet some fellow writers over at the Times. In fact, here’s my friend Stephanie’s recap with even more photos…

Thanks again for coming and bringing the girls! You were totally our top fundraiser by far, and you may have had the fiercest shoes, though the others might spear me with a stiletto in protest. You rock.
