Last night, I attended the annual New York City fundraiser for Shiloh NYC a faith based organization. Shiloh serves hundreds of families in marginalized communities of New York City by offering school based after school programming, assigning mentors to teens and hosting a summer camp. The event highlighted the progression of children that participate in the programs.
Over the past few months, I have had the honor of serving on the planning committee for the Help Us Adopt Annual “Faces of Adoption” Benefit and Auction. The organization gives grants to individuals and couples in the adoption process. (My husband recently joined their board!) The event, which takes place at ESPACE is the biggest fundraiser for the organization. I’m so proud of the organization and its work.
Lately, I have been glued to my computer (working on a book proposal–fingers crossed). Every so often, I manage to escape the glaring screen. This past weekend (with its gorgeous weather) was the perfect excuse to close the laptop. I went with my family to the Intrepid Museum and it did not disappoint. Airplanes, a space shuttle and interactivity made it a great day!
Earlier this evening, I attended a party for the authors of Sh*tty Mom a New York Times Bestselling humor book. Their latest book Sh*tty Mom For All Seasons was released this week.
The past couple of weeks have been spent at home on staycation with my family. Following the trip to Philadelphia, my son’s spring break began. I had several deadlines and my husband was quite busy with work. So, staying in New York made the most sense. We visited museums like the MoMA, attended Easter service at Riverside Church and enjoyed gospel brunch in Harlem. A low key, but enjoyable break.
