American Cancer Society Bugatti Ball Evening of Hope Gala
The Bugatti Ball Evening of Hope is a fundraising event to benefit the American Cancer Society. Last year the gala alone raised over $220,000. This year the event was held at The Mullin Automotive Museum. Attendees were offered guided tours by the curator, Andrew Reilly, and the formal dinner was catered by celebrity caterer, the Kitchen for Exploring Foods. The Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic (1936), valued at nearly $40 million, was the showpiece at the Evening of Hope Bugatti Ball. I along with three other beautiful ladies were asked to model jewelry for Fox, George Thompson, and Diamond Design jewelery that would be auctioned off to help raise monies for the fight against cancer. I am proud to say that we sold ALL of the tickets allocated for the jewelery auction and I was able to donate a "Princess Party" as a silent auction item to benefit the cause. Any amount of effort and volunteerism helps, and I truly hope that, along with my friends, we were able to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families.
