Date: May 3

Location: The Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village

The Cause: Princeton Child Development Institute

We’ve had the honor of working with PCDI on their Spring Sensations Gala for the past seven years, and we couldn’t be more happy to play a small part in raising money for this great cause. The Princeton Child Development Institute “provides quality treatment, education and professional training and mentoring” and through its research has “pioneered comprehensive intervention models that are used nationally and internationally for the benefit of persons with autism”.

This year’s Spring Sensations Gala’s theme was “Springtime in the City” the room was decked out with flowers, lampposts and park benches to give the feel of an urban park setting blossoming with the renewal that comes each spring.

There were some amazing items up for auction this year including a brand new Honda Stateline Motorcycle that drew a lot of attention and more importantly a good sum of funds for the organization. No, we didn’t win it, but the gentleman who did, let us get a shot of it…

After the auction items were all sold and dinner was served we got up on the stage to rock out for these amazing folks! Thanks again for having us back and we can’t wait to do it again! Here’s some more fun shots from the night…

Thank You LUNGevity!

We just wanted to take a moment to thank Connie Ruta and Diana Fusco of the LUNGevity Foundation for allowing us to be a part of their first ever New York Hope Gala on November 3rd. We had a wonderful time and got the crowd going with some great dance music from the Motown Era to today. Everyone was in high spirits and the foundation raised awareness as well as money to help fund the research that brings us closer to finding a cure for lung cancer!

When: November 3, 2011

Where: Jumeirah Essex House,  NYC

Why: To raise money and awareness to help fight lung cancer!

Yves and I and the rest of Nite-Time are excited to announce that we will be participating in the first annual Hope Gala to benefit the LUNGevity foundation. LUNGevity was “founded by seven Chicago area lung cancer survivors in November of 2000 to increase funding for lung cancer research.” Their vision is of “a world where no one dies of lung cancer” and we are thrilled to be able to do our small part to help them get one step closer to realizing that vision.

The gala will take place on November 3rd at the beautiful and iconic Essex House on Central Park South in NYC. There will be a cocktail reception at 6:30pm, followed by dinner and dancing at 7:30pm. Additional entertainment will be provided by Chrissy Bridgeman from Painted Rhythm Dance Company.

This cause is near and dear to our hearts. Both Yves and I have lost loved ones to this devastating disease, which is incredibly hard to detect in it’s early stages and therefore claims more lives in the U.S. per year than any other type of cancer. Lung cancer, contrary to popular belief, can afflict anyone regardless of gender, ethnicity or a history of smoking. For more information on lung cancer, check out LUNGevity’s page about the disease here.

We’ll have pics and a full report on the event in the coming weeks…
