Tonight, after work, I volunteered at a benefit. My friend, Jenny, lost her friend, Brad, to cancer last year. Tonight, she and some of his other friends held a benefit in his honor to raise money for cancer research at the Wisconsin Medical College and also to create a scholarship fund for a student at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, where they all attended. Since I am a licensed bartender I was able to spend a few hours tonight helping serve beer to the attendees. I was very honored to be a part of the event and glad that I could help out.
There was an art auction to raise money and there were some really great pieces. I am going to leave a link, here, to the event's Facebook page in case anyone is interested in looking at any of the art that was auctioned off!
Another great thing...some people were kind enough to tip us, so I have just enough extra money to get Amelia what we wanted for her birthday with no worries!
