A Day to Remember

Program Cover

In case you haven’t heard, Sunday, May 1, 2011 was an unforgettable day. People were cheering, smiling, sharing a few emotional exchanges and uniting together to celebrate  extraordinary efforts.   Why?

The Glenpointe Marriott’s Grand Ballroom was packed for the MS Center’s 14th Annual Spring Fashion Fling.   The event raised money for patients and families living with Multiple Sclerosis with a fabulous luncheon, raffle and fashion show.

And of course, if you’re like most folks here on the east coast, the day became even more memorable later in the evening for much different reasons.

On top of it being one of the nicest days of the year weather-wise, it was great to see the whole MS  Center team in action and all the volunteers gathered again for such a worthy cause; like Susan Zurndorfer, from the MS Center, as the event Chairperson, Chris Cimino, from WNBC-TV as the Honorary Chairperson and Saks 5 Avenue providing  the fashions.

It was also nice to spend the afternoon with my good friend from high school, Gabe Savarese. He works for Biogen Idec, a fortune 500 company that provides research and development in the fight against neurological diseases like MS.    Biogen was a generous contributor at the event and Gabe volunteered his time to assist the patients from the MS Center who were modeling onto and off  the runway during the show.

MMP Entertainment provided the audio support for the production as well as the annual half-time performance.
