Taste of Utah!!!

Last Saturday I had a great opportunity to participate in a fundraiser called taste of Utah! Its purpose is to raise money for the cystic fibrosis foundation. It was started 15 year ago by a awesome girl named Somers parents.Somer has cystic fibrosis and just turned 35 this year. She is such a inspiration and someone I hope tiara looks up to! The event was downtown here in salt lake city Utah at a 5 star hotel called The Grande America. There is a huge silent auction, a live auction and then a presentation. Everyone who attend gets to partake in a fancy dinner which is provided fee eom several high end restaurants in Utah. There were so many amazing people there donating money to find a cure. People who volunteered, paid money to eat, donated items, bid etc. I was speechless and teary all night with people kindness. Tiaras doctors were a there and making donations, other cf parents were there and even a good friend of mine from work. Jerry salons from the Utah jazz was there a very kind hearted man indeed!! Tiara was featured in the program, on some of the postcards that went out and in the video they played. I love seeing her little face. I will do whatever I can to help fins a cure for her and for all of the other people impacted by c.f. it was a beautiful night. One that I am so thankful and humbled to be a part of. Something I will look forward to for many years to come!! It raised close to $90,000. It will make a big impact on helping to find a cure! Thank you to all the donors from the bottom of my heart!!
