I am happy to report that things have been running very smoothly at the Deliver the Dream office lately, and with that being said, please don’t think for a second that I am slacking on my security responsibilities.
Believe it or not, I have a major responsibility in making sure our next fundraiser is a success. Yup, folks… the next one is all about wine – red wine, white wine, dessert wine … all kinds of wine. I’ll be honest, I’m not a connoisseur myself – something about grapes not being good for dogs. But if you are of the “non-canine” species and if you do enjoy wine – you’re not going to want to miss the American Fine Wine Gala at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Yeah, on April 24th – you’ll have the opportunity to entice your palate with great food and more importantly… award winning American wines from this year’s American Fine Wine Competition.
Why do I want everyone to attend? Well of course – it’s because there will be HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of bottles of wine available for bid in the silent auction… and those proceeds are being donated to Deliver the Dream… eh, hem… my employer. There will also be some pretty sweet live auction trips to Napa!
So, splurge a little and enjoy a sweet Hard Rock Weekend to benefit our families… and enjoy the nectar of the gods on my behalf.
With a lick of gratitude,
DTD Security Officer
